So? Do you support forcing parents to donate blood or bone marrow to their kids?

If I agree to donate a kidney to you,but at the last minute, I change my mind, I haven't done anything illegal. Even if you die as a result--because you were taken off the anonymous donor list--I haven't done anything illegal.

If I agree to donate a life-saving kidney to you in the event of my death, die, and then my husband decides he's uncomfortable with the situation, it's not a crime for him to stop the donation--it's his absolute right. This is true even if you are my kid.

If I've agreed to give you a kidney and then change my mind, are you comfortable with the state having me strapped to a table and forcibly cutting it out? Because forcing me to have a baby would be exactly that.
