Do I think the government should stick its nose into the regulation of something as mundane as driving a vehicle? No, I don't think so....but do they? Yes, they absolutely do.
If anybody could do anything with their body...then I could legally masturbate in public...it's MY body right? Wrong. That's simply not how the world works.
I recall a "controversial" t-shirt last year worn by Kelsey Grammer that says it all imho i.e. "Would you feel different if they used a gun?" implying would pro-abortionists feel different if a gun was used to abort an unborn child?
If it's okay that they regulate what women do with their body...what's next?
If a state says "okay well, any abortion after 3 months is now illegal"....
The state of Kansas, as far as I'm aware it hasn't been amended, passed anti-abortion legislature(HB 2253) in 2015 that not only says life begins at fertilization, but forbids abortion based on gender as well as bans PP from providing sex ed in schools.

Establishing what fits the definition of a person when it comes to the abortion issue is a lot more tricky than most people realise. I would argue that the detection of a vital organ (such as a heart or brain) would be one of the determining factors against having an abortion. However, ultimately the decision should be up to the potential parents. If the mother is unable to provide financial support herself, she needs to consult the fathers desires in regard to the pregnancy.
