Are males privileged to ‘decide’ on abortion when it does not involve their ‘own’ body? Central word is: decide, as one is granted the power to manufacture a decision on a stance in which they are unable to appreciate to the fullest extent. This is radically different from merely voicing an opinion; which is of course granted under the constitution of rights sub-sectioned by freedom of speech. In contrast, as one coherently devises a decision, it necessitates expectations of transforming one’s opinion into an objective artifact, an action, or an upshot transcending before them.
On morality, it is accepted that no one is entitled to the service of another person without their consent (ex. slavery), nor is one entitled to exploit the body of a fellow human being as a resource for their own selfish aims (ex. unconsented organ harvest). Withal, this covers the idea of survival; namely, I can not use any part of your body devoid of consent to further my subsistence. Thus, this marginalizes the rebuttals revolving around the ‘personhood’ of the embryo, as entitlement is not justified without permission.
Back to the issue of making a ‘decision’. Consider an individual with a third hand protruding from their stomach; now, can others decide on what the individual ought to do to that third hand? It seems intuitive that the competent individual has the right to do as they yearn. It is unethical to grant anyone the privilege to confer a decision on the prospect of that individual. Hence, the maxim would oblige, decisions are upheld only when voiced by the affected side. To broaden the point, if two individuals; namely, person A & B (same sex) both have a 3rd hand protruding from their stomach, it is intuitive that the verdict of person (A) must not overshadow the judgement of person (B). It seems unequivocally valid that males, in addition to females *gasp* should not be entertained by the act of voting on the fate of another party.
Males nor females are entitled to ‘decide’ on the competent decision of a male to undergo circumcision. Likewise, to confer others the capacity to cast a vote on abortion is to permit a deliberation entitled: “Enslaving her body to the verdict of other’s contemplation.” Therefore, we ought to do away with debating on what does not concern us.
If somebody’s choice does not affect you, you should not affect it
