Based on the principle, we as Christ followers, we do not believe that we own our body. Our body is the temple of God. So, even if we decides that our life is not worth living, suicide is not an option, simply because we do not own our body neither our life. Both body and life belongs to God, therefore, euthanasia, suicide cannot be permitted, despite my own body & my own life.
Following this principle, one may argue that roe v wade got it wrong. A woman does not own her body. It belongs to God. But then the same with man. His body belongs to God too. This argument then goes around to health care issue: who decide for my body in terms of health care? Ofcourse I decide for myself because God entrust this body to me. So we go back to euthanasia & suicide: can I decide to commit those on the ground “God has entrusted my life and my body to me” ? No, the bible say we cannot do those to anybody including ourselves, without inciting the wrath of God.
So the question becomes, is it true “my body my decision” ? Well, it is quite scary to entrust a womans body to anybody but herself. The answer to that has to be “yes, a woman decides for herself for her own body”. This is under woman’s privacy right. Nowadays we do not want to violate any privacy right. It is crucial right to protect.
So now, we are left with one question: would you support it if the civil law give right for the husband to consent to/ forbid the wife from aborting pregnancy conceived within legitimate marriage?
The civil argument would be: the child conceived within legitimate marriage automatically possess the right to life protected by civil law as the consequence of the legitimate marriage of the parents. Aborting the life is a breach of the law.
Would this means to breach a womans privacy right?
