Your Body by impersonalinfo Your Body by impersonalinfo
it should be obvious enough from all the other things I'm into that I don't give a damn what another woman does with her own body.

It's when you start to claim that "your body" includes something that is quite clearly another person entirely - sleeping when you're awake and waking when you're asleep, using its own eyes to look at things you'll never see, experiencing dreams that you'll never know about, hearing the same things you do day in and day out and processing them independently without consulting you etc., that the argument gets a little ridiculous.

inspired by

people making controversial stamps and then disabling the comments are like my primary source of inspiration lately.

I think all those people who say "having a baby will destroy a woman's life" are just plain wrong. The baby didn't do anything other than exist, which we're all guilty of. They're the ones who got pregnant and ruined their OWN lives. And rape, well, two wrongs don't make a right.

It doesn't matter if the fetus is a part of the pregnant persons body or not. Nobody has the right to use someone else's body without their consent. You have to have consent to harvest a persons organs for transplant when they die. So if you believe that a fetus has the right to a pregnant persons body, you're giving an unconscious mass of cells more rights than a living human being AND giving the pregnant person less rights than a CORPSE.

This confuses me.  I am not sure if you are for or against the idea of abortion.

ahem, to the moronic dickwads here, first off it is very much a life. life is energy. 
so, allow me to paint a picture here. there is a tree. it is not a /born/ thing. it is still alive though. it's actually been proven that plants feel too. anyhow, so this tree was never conceived. does that mean it is not living ? i think not. if you cut down a tree, you kill it. just because it is not a flesh, conceived being does not mean it is not a living thing. 
the same thing applies to a fetus in the mother's womb. it is energy. it is made up of developing cells. 
furthermore, in my opinion, it really isn't your body. it's another body /inside/ your body. the fetus is most definitely /not/ your body. 
if you think the fetus wouldn't be "bothered" by being slaughtered, think again. i'm unsure myself if i believe in an afterlife, but let's say there is one. once the fetus has been murdered, it's said 'spirit' would still go to said afterlife. it would know its own mother slaughtered it. i do think that would bother me a bit, don't you ?

Then let's make pregnancy the woman's fault, shall we?

Also, a fetus can't feel pain, has no mind, can't think, and isn't even breathing. When it's born, the fetus becomes a human, which is part of our world, and will stay human until it dies.

Unless you are speaking of a very early fetus, i disagree with cant feel pain, has no mind, and cannot think. How are you so sure of all that? And breathing has nothing to do with its status of a being.

Last time I checked, the woman caused the fetus to be made, and she can do whatever she wants with her creation, just like you can do anything you want with your toy. Unless it's born, she can decide whether to abort it or not. And please, if your gonna debate me, don't bring religion up, that argument is invalid.
