Dangerous thoughts

I just had a random thought. One that might be seen as dangerous by some people.

If an individual owns their own body (a foundational concept of liberty) and can therefore put anything they wish into that body, wouldn't the corollary be that they can also take anything out of their own body if they don't want it there? Even if they chose to put it there in the first place?



  1. I suppose that depends on when a fetus becomes an individual, doesn't it? That does seem to be what the argument is about.

  2. Not just an individual, but an individual human being.
