An Equal Right To Live

anonymous:

Hello there πŸ™‚ Just a friendly question. Do you not believe a woman has the right to choose what she does with her own body? If not, why not?

Yes, I do believe a woman has the right to choose what to do with her own body β€” under most circumstances. But the moment she conceives, it’s not only her body in question. There are two or more human beings sharing a common body. Each of them have an EQUAL right to live. This process is a result of evolution and it’s how human reproduction works. We cannot change it. Attempting to circumvent this process by killing another human being is immoral and unjust.

There are other examples where we do not have full legal control over our own bodies such as putting cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, and other drugs into our bodies or selling our own body parts. And these things don’t even involve the life of a separate human being like pregnancy does.
