A Woman's Right?

If the argument to support abortions is that "It is A Woman's Right To Choose" what to do with her own body, then does that same Right extend to her selling a body part?

If I am reading the law correctly ... then the answer is No!


--- Quote ---Under U.S. federal law, it is illegal to sell a kidney or any other bodily organ. The National Organ Transplant Act of 1984, sponsored by then-Congressman Al Gore (D-Tenn.) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), specifically states:

    "It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human organ for valuable consideration for use in human transplantation if the transfer affects interstate commerce."

The law imposes a maximum $50,000 fine and five years in prison for any violation. Most state laws also prohibit the sale of organs for profit.

In what way then does a "Woman's Right To Choose" Not apply here?

Selling organs affects men too, who are hated.  Ergo, not a "Womyn's Rights" issue. </cynic mode>

Interesting.Next question, since Planned Parenthood has been caught selling fetal 'tissue', can she sell that fetal tissue? (If so, then it isn't part of her body, which means it belongs to someone else. Which would mean she can sell body parts as long as they aren't hers, or at least planned parenthood can.)

(More stories of some sap coming out from under a roofie in a motel bathtub full of ice with a fresh scar and stitches follow....)

No.  A body part has her DNA.  A baby has half her DNA, and half from another individual, making it a separate entity from the "mother".

That is correct. In an abortion a separate genetic entity (a unique person) is killed.
