    It's my body, my choice" doesn't count when another life is involved.

    Doesn't it? Really? You see, we have a legal precedent in this country known as "bodily autonomy". Because of this precedent, you cannot forceme to donate blood, even if it is necessary to save a life. Similarly, you cannot harvest the organs of a corpse without the prior consent of the person, before they died. Even a corpse is allowed bodily autonomy.

    To insist that a person give up their bodily autonomy for nine months during an expensive, invasive, often life threatening procedure is immoral, unethical, and illegal. You are attempting to demand that women surrender the bodily autonomy that we afford to corpses. Really??????

    Precedents are like pie crusts. They are made to be broken.

    I thought pie crusts were to be eaten. Apparently, I'm not getting your metaphor.

    Yeah, this is one I'm not sure should. If we decide that people don't have bodily autonomy, where does that jend? Will we be able to dictate that people are required to donate blood? Can we demand that a person must donate a kidney, in order to make up for "organ shortage"? I happen to agree with the precedent that a person cannot be legally required to put their body at the disposal of others, by force of law.

    Where does your "bodily autonomy" begin? There is another person involved at conception...when does that person get the same rights that you are claiming for the woman?

    What else is new from the neo party of "small government" and more "autonomy"????

    Life is "precious" when you are unborn to it.........once born into a life.....you become a burden or an illegal, to the same people who obsess about "protecting" the unborn......THEN, if you don't measure up or present a problem, it's okay to throw your life, into the dumpster.....

    Can you say BIZARRO WORLD, boys and girls?

    We will find that out fairly soon I imagine once we get Roe v. Wade overturned.

    When it becomes an actual person, not just a blob of goo... And I say this as a recent father of two, btw.
