“Keep your laws off my body” is a popular abortionette slogan, but like so many feminist ideas, it is an observably nonsensical assertion. It is not at all difficult to find a whole host of laws that directly concern our bodies. There are laws dictating how we must clothe them, what we are permitted to ingest in them, how we are allowed to transport them from place to place and whom they are permitted to sexually penetrate. It is a rhetorical device, nothing more, and a remarkably silly one at that.
Unfortunately, the panoply of laws concerning one’s body are merely the tip of the legal iceberg. Americans are now living in a literally totalitarian society.
