The logical next step after the reduction of pet population is the reduction of human population.

Not so

by Tig2 In reply to Abortion

The fact that we have the medical ability to do a thing in a humane manner does not assume that we WILL do a thing in a humane OR inhumane manner.

Last I checked, we don't have an allowance for humane euthanasia or Kevorkian would never have found himself in the legal hot water he did. We don't have a widespread acceptance for abortion or doctors that choose to enable this wouldn't be firebombed.

Generalities are always shaky ground on which to place one's facts solidly. A thing CAN be done. Doesn't mean that it WILL be done or SHOULD be done. Capability is nothing. The secondary moral questions pertain.

Secondary moral questions...

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Not so

Exactly that to which I refer. Abortion and euthanasia are tools in the hands of one side or the other. And have been for ages. There is nothing particularly recent about either.

No one suggested that they were recent

But you suggest, however coyly, that those tools could be employed- even reasonably- in the **** projected by this asinine article.

The fact that the door has been left ajar does not mean for one second that the idiotic and poorly met "conclusions" of this article could, would, or should be answered via abortion or euthanasia.

Please- let me go slit my wrists this second-- as long as that means you leave my partner THE **** ALONE.

You engage emotionalism that you know fine well has a boiling point in order to make a specious argument.

as you do, you know quite well I do not - even coyly - suggest that. Virtually anyone who is familiar with what I write here knows that I do not suggest that.

You allow your situation to color your perception of me, as most, if not all of us would do in your situation.

I do not engage emotionalism, I engage being.

What state of "being" do you believe you were purporting?

I do NOT allow my situation to color my perception of you. I allow YOU to do so. Your regret if you see otherwise. I specified at what points my perception was colored by emotionalism.

Your statement here does me dishonor.

There is nothing

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Knowing me

in either of my initial posts that suggests anyone go through the door. Or not go through the door. In black and white, I purported only that they are and that they hold a door ajar.

There is only being and not-being. I cannot speak to not-being.
