Re: The Abortion Thread

Fair enough. But whether you call the fetus a trespasser or a part of her body, the whole issue is whether that fetus has some moral status or right that might over-ride her right to self-determination. I think there's something much larger and more important than just tresspassing or a woman 'owni...

Re: The Abortion Thread

Hmmm. One assumes you're not conferring some sort of natural rights to the zygote, are you? Because while it is biologically true that the zygote is an individual member of H. sapiens, it's also not in possession of almost all the features that we generally think of as the features of people. I can'...

Re: The Abortion Thread

Just tell me, pro-life "libertarians": is this rash of state laws what you want this country to be? Is forcing that 11-year-old to bear her rapist's offspring a proper use of state power, in your view? And they would say, would you allow that same woman to kill her rapist's offspring if the child w...

Real talk because this has been a legitimate question in my mind - Do any and all here think that slavery is worse than or less awful than murder? I'm guessing the default is murder because it's irreversible, but I sometimes think that murder causes less suffering than slavery, so maybe slavery is t...

Re: Orange is the new President

Given all of the uncertainty around this case, let me offer a radical proposal: Let's have a formal process for fact-finding. The accused can have the assistance of someone experienced in these processes, and call witnesses and present evidence in his defense. The government can have its own experi...

BTW, if you think of it as a story of How Tyrion Comes to Be Arranging Chairs around a Table it's pretty alright.
