I just read this wonderful post on Youtube about abortion and body autonomy

She goes by the name, Katherine Kuznetsov on Youtube and here is the post


"You have no argument against abortion. Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didnít want to.

See, we have this concept called ďbodily autonomy.Ē Itís thisÖ.cultural notion that a personís control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.

Like, we canít even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.

To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You canít even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they arenít using anymore after they have died.

Youíre asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.

Also, if you think that the extremely high crime rate and gun violence in the US compared to countries where guns aren't legal for civilians to have isn't correlated to guns, you're an idiot. Maybe if psychos weren't running around shooting up schools with the guns they legally purchased, you wouldn't need a gun to "defend" yourself.
