A pro-life fanatic disputes an argument
This isn't the best response I've seen to the violinist setup, and suffers from a bit of an echo chamber quality, but makes some excellent points. E.g.
The hypothetical should be this: your own child becomes very sick because of something you did. He needs a blood transfusion and you are the only match. Would you refuse to give him your blood because it infringes on your bodily autonomy? Could this be morally justified? You put your kid in the hospital and now you will choose to watch him die because he ‘doesn’t have a right to your blood.’ THIS scenario would be the closest to abortion. And, if you are consistent in your affinity for ‘bodily autonomy,’ you could not criticize parents who’d rather let their child die than be inconvenienced by a blood transfusion. - See more at: http://www.personhoodusa.com/blog/no-pro-life-fanatic-could-ever-possibly-dispute/#sthash.WHcUhnAQ.dpuf
