The Body as a Disposable Object

Does our law tend to accept the concept of the body as a thing? Can we point to examples showing that the body is treated as an object? What are the consequences entailed in the questioning of the non-disposability of the body?
Isn't the liberalization of abortion the consequence of a new perception of the human body? Are we not quickly coming to consider the body as another thing among others? Wasn't there, however, some reluctance on the part of pharmaceutical firms regarding their research on contraceptive products?
