You need a kidney. I'm the perfect donor, but do not agree to give you one. You are not a doctor, but you drug me and take out one of kidneys, and get a doctor to put it into you.

Not fine with that.
And, neither is anyone. Here's the question in the OP (I believe). Should that be a crime against you or (to stretch your analogy to the breaking point) should it be a crime against the kidney? The way the law is currently written, it's a crime against the, uh, kidney.

The analogy, like many abortion-related analogies, really breaks down.
