    Doesn't make sense to me. Please explain.

    •  You already don't have 100% control of your body (0+ / 0-)

      You can't do everything you want to do with it.

          Ingest substances the government has decided are bad for you.

          Try to destroy the integrity of your body (i.e. commit suicide).

            for pregnancy.  we're not talking about some wild-eyed crazy person who wants to do whatever they feel like

            Can someone force YOU to donate a kidney? or some other organ?  of course not...pregnancy is like donating ALL your organs so another being can survive, even if temporarily.  a woman should have a right to choose NOT to do this... and if she doesn't have that control what is next?  will the pregnancy police start rounding them up watching their every move to be sure they don't ingest something which might be deleterious to the health of the developing child?

            •  You bounce between extremes here (0+ / 0-)

              First I'm being unreasonable because we're not talking about wild-eyed women who will do whatever they want then we're talking about pregnancy police rounding up women?

              Those are both ridiculous. You've already said you don't mind the restrictions in place currently on extremely late term abortions so why then assert this mythical right to do whatever you want whenever you want however you want.

              •  bull - i am not bouncing at all (0+ / 0-)

                where did i assert

                this mythical right to do whatever you want whenever you want however you want

                ?

                i am, and have been, saying that a woman should be entitled to privacy in her medical decisions, including abortion

                you said we already don't have 100% right to do whatever we want to ourselves and I ask where do you draw THAT line.

                You think pregnancy police is ridiculous.  You do know this is already happening, right?
