Re: Abortion hypotheticals

In today's world additional humans rarely cause less suffering. Interesting indeed ( to me, at least ). I can't say I disagree, but I am a bit surprised at your response. I would like to sit down with a beer with you and discuss this more, but since that isn't likely, I'll contemplate on this and m...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

From a consequential point of view considering the world we live in today, I favor abortion and I don't believe that anti-abortion laws serve any purpose. I also have no problem, in today's world, with the killing of newborn infants if all involved parties are in agreement. Interesting. I don't nec...

Re: Are you surprised/disappointed by the slow spread of veganism?

Good point. ( Nice to see you, TVA, btw. :) ) I think the recent reduction of militant Vegans (at least in terms of media representation) has really helped Veganism to be seen as more mainstream. Besides the ethical considerations, there have been published studies showing a Vegan diet is the most e...

If you are going to eat an oyster, you may as well eat meat.
Hello fredericlavender,

Wouldn't it be less harmful overall for someone to eat an oyster rather than veal? Just in terms of overall, identifiable suffering?

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

It's questions like these that convince me you aren't following the discussion. I'm on a hell of a drunken bender, and you are correct I haven't been following the discussion like I should have been, especially since I have been replying with incoherent replies. This is a topic I have serious felli...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

It is moral to kill rape fetuses because they are incapable of survival on their own. Thus, my right to bodily autonomy overrides its right to life. Then it would logically follow...

Peanut butter and Mustard.

I literally just learned about this, and it sounded gross as hell. But then I tried it. HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BEFORE!

Thoughts on this delicious abomination? (seriously, before you take up torches to burn me, try this. )

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

The argument can go against your position regarding newborn infants conceived of rape. If: It is moral to kill rape fetuses because they are incapable of survival on their own. Thus, my right to bodily autonomy overrides its right to life. Then it would logically follow... It is moral to kill rape ...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

Finally, I don't think you believe that the right of a non-born baby to live is the determinant point in this discussion. If you did you would clearly not condone abortion because of rape, because clearly a rapist son has as much a right to live as a non-rapist's. I'm not the most "moral" person al...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

If it is living in your body, and basically a parasite that you must feed, you have the right as an individual to remove the parasite. I don't like it morally, but that's your right as an individual. It's pretty clear to me though, that if it's able to survive without your uterus, you no longer hav...
