I don't think anyone pretends it's "nothing". Woman who do it aren't cold, callous monsters. Vilifying them isn't constructive.
Do we pretend it's "nothing" to decide to have a baby? These are world-changing decisions for a couple, either way.
Women who CAN'T have babies have nothing to do with it. The one's who don't WANT a baby shouldn't have sex or should use protection. I never said any of the things you're arguing against. I never said I assumed everyone wants babies or any of the other stuff you're talking about so I'm not going to respond to it.
