these are some interesting arguments.|
How is unwillingly being attached to a violinist relate to willingly engaging in intercourse?
As for abortion being similar to hacking up the violinist before uplugging the attachments, that is only equivalent in late term abortions.
This line is prime "She then asks us to consider if having an abortion is a meaningful parallel to unplugging the violinist. Both circumstances catch the woman by surprise." Surprise? Maybe if you stopped doing drugs or drinking so much it wouldn't be a surprise that sex can lead to pregnancy.
Ack, time to go back to work.
awesome article, i swear.

"If a woman has the right to defend herself against a rapist, she also should be able to use deadly force to expel a fetus. In pregnancy, a woman is being attacked by another human being—from the inside, not from the outside. Therefore, she has the moral liberty to repel her attacker by killing the intruder." Good God, That is by far the most asinine thing I have ever heard. I should have the liberty to use deadly force against her for attacking my brain cells. I swear I'm now dumber for having read that paragraph.
