    You do not control your body. Your body is limited by it's abilities which were formed by the process called evolution.

    And yes, you make decisions. As I said, it's not an issue of control; It's an issue of choice
    Who is in control of the choices?

    Remember?
    Yes, and if you read what I wrote you notice I said SCOTUS does not decide upon morality, but the law. Again:

    Interesting, because it's not the argument you've been posting. It was you who asserted that the goverment decides morality.

    So IYV, we simply exist, and no one is making any choices? Yet, you believe SCOTUS has the ability to limit the "non-choices" we make?

    I retract that last, in rereading what you posted we do agree that government does not decide morality.
