In the US, is my body considered my own personel property? I was hoping it is.
I feel that I should be able to do what every I want with my personel property, as long is it doesn't pester anyone else.
If I choose not to wear a seatbelt, while crusing around in my car, why is it anyone elses' business? It's my life! If I want to kill my self, well tough, it's MY SELF, and I probably have good reasons, which I don't want to share with the government.
Perhaps these two examples would bother other people, but let's not lose our rights to our own body.
The reason I began thinking along these lines, was, to drive a commercial truck, the law requires drivers to be subject to give blood, at any time, to prove their innocence, of using illicit substances. My blood is my own, not a tool for the traffic cops, to make their life easier. Perhaps if the authorities had some kind of suspicion, like long hair or the like, it might be ok.
I know what your going to say, there are people out there that need that kind of law, to keep themselves from hurting themselves.
But what's wrong with natural selection? It's worked for millions of years.
If someone out there wants to climb mountains or eat pork rinds all the time, should we make laws to keep them from hurting themselves? It's their selves.
Anyway, I'm sure I'm like a lot of people, I'm going to ignore the unreasonable laws, the ones which treat my own body as being not quite my own personel property.
