The main arguments for abortion, or pro-choice arguments are that a foetus is not truly alive- whereas there can be no argument that the mother is- therefore is not the mother's life worth more and more important?

If I became pregnant accidentally I hope that I would go ahead and have the baby so as not to kill a human life even though I didn’t particularly want it. My whole life would probably be changed forever, but it would have been my fault for having careless sex in the first place.
Killing your baby is the worst decision to make.
