Ethics question regarding abortion. Your opinion?
I'm warning you--don't get me started. Too late. 8^< The old 'You just killed Beethoven' argument is just really weak. And sad. Maybe we should force every girl to have ten or twelve kids, starting as soon as she gets her period, because one of those could be Beethoven. 8^P The fact is, syphilis was so common in the late 18th/early 19th century it wasn't even seen as a disease! It was perhaps the biggest cause of deafness, blindness, and insanity. Infant and child mortality hovered around 50%. Birth defects and disabling childhood diseases were very common. For many years, people weren't sure of just were life begins. I mean, most reasonable people would look at a 9-month fetus, ready to be born, viable outside the mother's body, and say yes, that's a person, that's a human being. But the same reasonable people would look at a fertilized egg, a zygote, a single cell, too small to be seen with the naked eye, with no heart or brain or other organs, no consciousness or personality, and say no, that's not a human. So where between these two extremes do we draw the line? If you ordered chicken in a restaurant and they brought you a hard-boiled egg, well that's not the same thing! 'But it's a -fertilized- egg!' the waitress insists. No, it's still not the same thing. For a long time the pro-life movement was overwhelmingly Roman Catholic. And in a way they have a right to it because they also oppose contraception. But Protestant (fundamentalist) Christians still weren't sure just where we can say life begins. The idea that life begins when the sperm hits the egg was a decision made for the presidential campaign of Ronald Reagan in 1980, designed to drive a stake into the ground for Christians to rally around, to make abortion a big issue in that election. It is not a technical 'fact', and it certainly isn't in the Bible. It was a POLITICAL decision, an artificial and arbitrary standard. Today we know that half or more of all fertilized eggs never implant on the uterine wall and begin to develop. They are genetically incomplete or have some other imperfection, so they flush out of the woman's body with her next period, before she ever even knew she was 'pregnant'. Can we believe that God kills half of all 'human beings' before they ever even get a chance to develop? Is God an ABORTIONIST? A BABY-KILLER? I'm not as unsympathetic as I might sound with the Pro Life argument, but the argument seems to have been deliberately laid out more for political reasons than moral ones. It's deliberately designed in such a way that it can never be resolved, so one political party can get maximum political mileage out of it. In fact the number of abortions performed in the US have gone up under Republican presidents and down under Democratic presidents because the Democrats believe in providing alternatives.
