Phi for All Posted October 2, 2012 Share Posted October 2, 2012 Ooh, phi, you've reached 10,000 posts. Congrats. Well, the facts he gave were sort of random, and didn't really express one idea or another. The post is titled ethics of abortion, not factual and opinionless discussion of abortion. No one goes into the politics section not expecting bickering and strongly biased opinions. Nowadays, politics involve very few facts, so I find it fitting. Factual discussion about factual things, biased discussion of biased things. This is one of the biggest problems with the abortion issue, people trying to form ethical stances based on few facts. It's insane. This adherence to "life begins at conception" is completely untenable. It's more in line with a personal moral value, but fails miserably when you attempt to make it law and enforce it. I think it's extremely selfish thinking. Some people assume birth control means sluts doing whoever they want, or think welfare goes only to lazy people who could work if they really wanted to. People who oppose making abortion available seem more interested in a potential life than they are in the actual, here-and-now life of the mother, and they're usually the ones who demand that every baby gets born and then don't want to pay taxes that go to any welfare or education for all those kids. They're also usually the same people who don't really give a crap that lots of innocent brown people get killed every day with their tax money. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
