JONAH GOLDBERG: Keep Your Laws Off My Body. “I’m something of a product of my times. In the 1980s and 1990s I heard a lot of putatively honest liberals insist that the one zone of life that was absolutely sacrosanct was our own bodies. The state simply had no business getting involved in ‘our bodies.’ Admittedly, this was mostly the rhetoric of abortion. . . . Flash forward to today and pretty much the entire edifice of liberalism insists that our bodies — what we put into them, how we maintain them — are fair game not just for Congress but for bureaucrats.”
