In the clash of world views, unborn babies do not have rights so far as the left is concerned. Some even believe in the reductio ad absurdum of post-birth abortion. However, in the same left wing world--say, the world defined by the New York Times--plants do have rights. They are a "who", not a "what".
Part of the effectiveness of Alice in Wonderland as satire is that the occupants of the story don't get the humor. Thus, the same Times that brings us articles justifying infanticide bring us articles calling for plant rights. Discovery sr. fellow Wesley J. Smith, long a critic of the cheapening of human rights, this weeks takes on the peas-niks.
