If I was to discover that I were to be unwound based on a decision my parents had made, I will feel both betrayed and heartbroken. In this position, I would try to escape and to live a new life in a far place. Though if I could not either escape or go along with it, I would gather other unwinds and protest against the present laws of the Bill of Life, to make others understand that unwinding is awful.

2. If I discovered I was in an accident or had a rare disease, and the only cure is by taking an unwinds organs to replace my damaged ones, I would feel uncomfortable. Although, I would also be very thankful, considering how, though with force, they gave their organs to save others.
