12. Right, I don't see anyone suggesting that she should have been
forced to abort, have surgery, and follow up with chemo so that her 3 daughters would still have a mother. People regret her choice but nobody thinks the law should have stepped in to make it for her.

I may think some people make really stupid life choices, but since I haven't walked in their shoes and I don't know all that provoked such a choice, it's really not up to me to try to control them. They have a right to do what they want to do with their own bodies and lives.

I have the right to voice an opinion on it. I don't have the right to control it, and that is where the line is.
