Why Didn't I Think of This?

I was so close to this idea with my thinking about the anti-abortion movement and what they must think of human life given the rate of miscarriages (if miscarriage is so common yet fetuses are people, then what does that say about the value of human life?) ... but I did not figure out this obvious point of argument alas. Kudos to John Palmer.

Relatedly: does anybody have any thoughts about the degree to which our view of babies as precious is shaped by lowered infant mortality?
