By way of illustration:

No person can be legally required to donate blood or part of their body. Even in the most ludicrous example you could think of: a drunk driver mortally injures someone and could save their life by donating blood. Even though the situation is their fault, isn't legally compelled to give blood. Those are extreme examples, and hundreds more that are far less intense exist. In none of them is a person required to surrender their bodily autonomy.

A fetus has no right to require the use of a woman's body for nine months of she doesn't want to. Even if she fucks 80 men a day without protection, who gets to use her uterus to gestate in is exclusively her decision.

You forget that, at least in the US, organ donation is opt-in.  Therefore even dead people would have more bodily autonomy that a pregnant woman if the anti-abortion people had their way.

A person should show that they are an organ donor before you agree to listen to their pro-life spiel.

Trust me, I would never forget that corpses have more sanctity than women in the minds of anti-choice people. I'm just amazed that the realization didn't occur to me earlier in life.

LOL So you would allow third trimester abortions on the grounds that "the fetus has no right to the womans body." Hello Ayn Rand!

Are you bored? You must be really bored.

Your argument applies to every trimester of pregnancy.

Yes. And?

Fascinating how my pointing out that I made another human with my own bone and blood was glossed over by PDS, and he instead went to a scenario in which two beings share a body instead of one directing leeching off another.
If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Truly a master of mental gymnastics.

If it was a real sport, he'd definitely be Olympic standard.
