When my soul is sick unlimited spiritual liberty is given me by the State.
Now then, it doesn't seem logical that the state shall depart from this great
policy, the health of the soul, and change about and take the other position
in the matter of smaller consequences--the health of the body...
Whose property is my body? Probably mine. I so regard it. If I experiment with it, who must be answerable? I, not the State. If I choose injudiciously, does the State die? Oh, no.
