Ah, ‘Your body – your choice’ strikes again.

The adoption of that motto, so loved by feminists and libertarians alike, was to secure the right to abort. But it was really poorly thought through. Because now some women are choosing to sell their bodies. The market forms, and now every function that the female body is capable of has a price. And there is NOTHING you can do about it until you get back to the idea that some level of social control over individual freedom concerning her or his body is absolutely normal for a healthy society.
