Terrible Body of Logic

Many, many times, I have seen people on social media chant something along these lines:

"Men shouldn't be making laws about women's bodies. (repeat ad nauseum)"

This is horrible logic. By this logic, anti-rape (of a woman) and anti-murder (of a woman) laws should not be in place. And women should be allowed to drive as drunk as they want.

The truth is right is right, wrong is wrong, and there actually is such a thing as right and wrong. If a law is morally right, it doesn't matter who wrote and voted on it. To suggest otherwise is folly, and repeating a lie in an online chant doesn't make it any more true.
