My body, my choice.

The defense used in the abortion debate.

My body, my choice? Why isn't it "my body, my choice" when we discuss the healthcare insurance mandate?

There, it isn't "my body, my choice". It's "My body, government choice".

Now we can debate, if it is "my body" in the case of abortion. . .

But in terms of general healthcare mandates, it most definitely IS my body.

Yet most proponents of abortion rights are apparently for healthcare mandates as well.

How does anyone reconcile the two seemingly disparaging views?

I am not sure why a person can't choose to use heroin either.
I am sure someone will say that it can hurt the family of a user.... but so does alcohol and tobacco.

My light socket; my choice? Nope CFL's and LED's except for a few applications where an incandescent is required.

It's a nonsense argument. Baby's body is baby's body, too. Mother is a landlady who signed a nine month lease. Nowhere else can you terminate a lease unilaterally by killing the tenant.

Everything is a choice for women today until it does;nt work in their favour, or turns out bad, then it is all men's fault. You must have not got the memo.

"my body": words from the ego. Its not your body and it never was. The seed that lies within isn't yours either, but it is your responsibility.

I think a woman has a right to do what she wants with her body, but the fetus is not a segment of her body.

"Now we can debate, if it is "my body" in the case of abortion. . . "

looks like you answered your own question.

now If you wanna shout "my body, my choice" at an anti-ACA rally, go for it.

Because it is insurance. Your body, your vehicle, if you will, and if you crash it, others have to pay for it if you can't pay for it yourself. You can't choose whether or not you might need care.

You can then choose whether or not to have medical procedures done to your body. No one is preventing you from getting needed care. No one is forcing you to have a procedure done.

The other aspect is that the goal behind the mandate was not just personal responsibility but collective. This is where ideology on the left and right hits it's own wall and crashes.

The mandate will not be a problem for you much longer.

IMO it is all relative to which side you want to look at. We are being led to look at smaller instances instead of the big picture. Politics by its very nature is divisive and hypocritical. I wouldn't assume many would see the stark contrast in the two.

P.S. Finally got around to the birds and the bees talk with your wife I see!

Social safety nets can be applied to both healthcare and childcare.

But paying for someone else's childcare isn't mandated by the government.

they made a choice with their body when they chose to have unprotected sex and get pregnant.

what they really mean is " I made a bad choice with my body, I want a do over"
