My life is a non-negotiable demand

"I will choose what enters me, what becomes of my flesh. Without choice, no politics, no ethics lives. I am not your cornfield, not your uranium mine, not your calf for fattening, not your cow for milking. You may not use me as your factory. Priests and legislatures do not hold shares in my womb or my mind. This is my body. If I give it to you I want it back. My life is a non-negotiable demand."  ~ Marge Piercy
