Quote# 4696

Well, in California, if a woman doesn't put her seat belt on her body, cops have the right to give her a $60 ticket. Isn't that a 'way whatsoever' that someone else has a right over a woman's body?

They're not controlling her body. It's a safety regulation.

Now get back to your homework, kiddo.

Just for the record, I disagree with that law, too. If a person is stupid enough to drive without a seatbelt, should we really interfere with the thinning of the herd mechanism that is likely to follow?

Damn Yankee

The Christian fundies wouldn't like it, because it would be survival of the fittest in action.

Even if that WAS controlling her body (which it isn't), they do that to men too.

Fail example has failed.

um no. Period.

I've read that paragraph several times, and I still am unable to find a resemblence of logic to it. Men would also be fined if found driving without their seatbelts right? *shakes head*

The same system is in place over here (Norway), and I do see a very good reason for it - safety.

The seatbelt is not part of her body, nor is it totally dependent on her body to exist.
It's a safety measure, both for her safety and for others. An unbelted body can cause great harm during a crash, both to itself and to those around it.
Plus, a man will be fined just as much as a woman.
