It's a possible failure mode.

Definitely. It happens in the world a lot. I'd just think those people are doing it wrong because I disagree with them. I think it is the failure of not valuing women's humanity enough. But it's a false dichotomy. It's possible to value both humans and potential humans.

Thinking more on other failure modes: Maybe valuing life too much in general could be too much humanity but the failure modes of that I can think of seem to be some other virtue: valuing peace too much and refusing to avert injustice because of potential cost of life. Or empathising too much with people who have done wrong to the detriment of protecting people from them (though that really seems more like an excess of mercy).

Complex forms of wireheading (not just superheroin) are something like valuing life too much at the expense of what makes life enjoyable.

I don't really understand wireheading; I've read the wikipedia article on it but it's hard to wrap my head around the concept. But from what I understand, it seems more like valuing pleasure over life?
