After you explained said this over and over again to a pro-lifer, what explains their continued belief that what they are doing is out of love or a desire to help? The only thing they are loving is their own ideology. There is no other will to be the recipient of their love.
I think it boils down to belief. It runs deeper. If you believe that foetuses have wills and actually are
beings, you will want to protect them. Why do you say they are not beings? That they have no will? What does our scientific understanding have to say on the matter?
