Their "right to choose" for women means "no human rights for anyone unless you get permission from one person - your mother" or "human rights are only for the chosen, and not for everyone"
That is the message loud and clear.
That's why they were pushing for "may issue" - again, another human right only for the chosen.

By saying that neither of us have the right to kill each other that shows that the right to life is absolute. That's my point.
The fact that both of us are alive in the first place and that nobody has infringed on both of our right to life, allows us to discuss what OTHER human rights we have. Without the right to life, no other human rights exist.
That's why the 2A is so important. It is tied in to the right to life. Self-defense. The right to defend those I love. The right to defend other's lives.
There are seemingly two arguments going on here. Yes, you have a right to life so long as you make choices that keep you alive. However, if someone breaks into your house to rob you, so that they can obtain food for themself and their family, but then you shoot and kill them when a confrontation erupts...
1. The thief has infringed on your property rights (an extension of your right to life, the ability to trade your labor - your life's time and effort - for money or goods) to support his right to life.
2. You have infringed on the thief's right to life to defend your property rights.
Yes, there are other "choices" people can make in finding better ways to feed themselves, just as you can make better choices in where to live and how to lock your doors to reduce the chances you never have to shoot an intruder. "Rights" are a made up concept, at a universal, planetary, or natural level they do not exist. The insect's right to life ends in the fish's stomach, which ends in the seal's stomach, which in turn ends in the whale's stomach. "Your property" is only yours because you claim it to be so, and you defend it as such. Perhaps society would side with you in the argument should it arise. However, rights only exist in our ability, as individuals and as a society, to define and defend them. All of your rights cease to exist immediately should China nuke your hometown.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin
Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world - "No, you move." - Captain America
