A woman is "used" by the fetus

According to WND, Obama Cass Sunstein, one of Obama's many czars once wrote, "A restriction on access to abortion turns women's reproductive capacities into something to be used by fetuses. .."

Used by fetuses? If a fetus is just a blob of tissue, how can it "use" anything? Would we say that a wart on my hand is "using me"? (I don't have any warts, by the way :-)

On the other hand, if the fetus is a human being, Sunstein may have a point. For example the fetus does use the mother for nourishment .

But if the fetus is a human being, wouldn't the pre-meditated termination of his or her life be murder?

I know these musings are a bit absurd--but so is Sunstien's statement!
