If You Don’t Have the Right to My Liver, You Don’t Have a Right to My Womb (via thespinsterette)
If someone needs a liver transplant, or bone marrow, or a blood transfusion, do they have a right to just take it from your body?
Of course not. Donating a liver, bone marrow, or blood is a voluntary action. Refusing isn’t a crime, and it won’t land you in jail.
What if the person will die if not allowed to use your body? Still no.
Yet when it comes to pregnancy, anti-choicers believe that this is different. In this case, a woman’s body is not her own. Even if we accept the premise that life does begin at conception (which I don’t), legislation banning abortion doesn’t fly. A fetus has no more a right to a woman’s womb than a person already born has to her organs or blood.
