The Right To Choose

Acidman states his opinion on the Supreme Courts' ruling upholding Oregon's physician-assisted suicide law:
I've always found puzzling the logic that says government can sanction abortion, and even dictate that other people have to pay for it, while making suicide a crime. What do feminists say about abortion? "It's MY body, to do with as I please!" I agree, even though I think abortion used as common post-coital birth-control is wrong. It's a right of "privacy," according to abortion proponents.

Why not apply the same rules to suicide? It's MY body, to do with as I please, and if abortion is a privacy issue, the decision to kill myself surely ought to be.
Some would say the same thing about drugs, smokes, booze or even cheeseburgers for that matter.
