I just watched Law and Order tonight, and it dealt with the issue of stem cell research.
Somebody said soemthing I found interesting, and had not thought about before....they made the point that one of the biggest arguments supporting the right to choose is that women should have the right to do what they want with their own bodies....but then pointed out that legally, we DON'T even have the right to choose completely what to do with our own bodies....we are not allowed to, for example, sell a kidney.(why not?? becuase the costs would get out of control and only the wealthy would have a chance?? isn't it already that way in the American health care system to an extent?? anyways, that's off-topic)
Just something I found interesting. I had never heard that comparison made before.
Thoughts?

It is odd isn't it how you can't legally sell your organs but you can kill your baby (for the purposes of this statement i'm referring to abortion that way) as long as it is still inside your womb.

A fetus is not a legal person in the USA. You have the right to do what you will with your body until it infringes on other people. Becuase the fetus is not in the category of other people because it is not a person under the law, you can get an abortion. You can do what you want with your organs but it cannot negatively afgfect other people- hence they must be disposed of correctly, they must be donated correctly, and the whole selling organs thing is a big can of worms with lots of far reaching affects.

So:

Abortion: affects no other legal persons

Examples used in OP: affects other legal persons
