Yes, a kidney is not a child. But a life is a life. So surely you would be willing to part with something you don't need to save a life? Perhaps even a child's life? I ask this question because I have spoken to many men who are against abortion - but get very queasy when asked if they would risk their _own_ health for someone else's life. It's a lot easier to be anti-abortion if you are never forced to carry a child to term. Personally I am also against abortion; it is usually the worst of several bad options. But it's not up to me. It's up to the person whose life is put at risk by carrying the child.
