Exactly. If it only involved "their own bodies," there wouldn't be an issue. Science is on the side of life and the personhood of that unborn child, who has unique DNA and a gender, which half the time turns out to be female. Also known later in life as a woman. Guess you could say we care about ALL women.
A better question is, how do public schoolers learn to associate with anyone besides their age-peers? Homeschoolers learn to get along with the most challenging people in the world: their own family members (and forge strong bonds with them). Then they go out into the community (co-ops, extracurriculars, service opportunities) and associate with real people in real-life situations. A classroom environment does not reflect real life.

This comment could have been cut and pasted from the Skeptic's Handbook. It's the generic response of someone who has either not actually read the Bible or has just jumped from this verse to that verse (as instructed by another skeptic) for "evidence" to support their unbelief, with no attempt to study and understand the Book as a whole. I understand that the Bible does NOT endorse slavery, or rape (and stoning had its specific time and place, harsh but comprehensible when you understand historical context). I gained this by actual effort and study. If your next response is something along the lines of "it's not worth my time", then you're saying it's not worth your time to study the most influential literary masterpiece in human history.
