While morals are unique to each person, I definitely think it's an ethically questionable decision. We know that the fetus is a unique human life in
at least some
form and that it has the potential to grow into an adult like all of us. I'm personally pro-life, but the legality of abortions
has always been a tough topic for me. My deal is this, I don't mind living in a society that has made the decision that women have the right to
choose. What I mind is living in a society where we've become so ethically 'bla' or lazy that we reduce the question down to only the woman's right
and not the fetus's possible countervailing right.
To quote one of my favorite pro-choice
, law professors "If you don't think there's an ethical dilemma that coincides with every abortion, if
you don't think that every abortion terminates something more unique and precious than a hair or skin cell, then you're simply not thinking hard
The reason I can still call myself pro-life, while my verdict's still out on the legality issue is because too many of my pro-choice acquaintances
refuse to think hard enough about the question. Things like this disgust me:
So, yea, that's kind of where I draw the line.
