Well, who could argue with this?

Second headline, same day:

Hmmm. Maybe the first will come to pass when we stop treating humans as disposable..?

    Point well made and accepted. I get it.

    Reminds me of the comparison of an image of a bacterium/cell alongside an image of an unborn child.
    The caption under the bacterium is “This would be deemed ‘Life’ by scientists if found on Mars”.
    The caption under the baby is “This is not considered ‘Life’ by pro-choicers on Earth”.
    To emphasise the point, the caption under both rhetorically asks “Life is more precious on other planets?”

    I have many libertarian instincts, but probably not enough for other readers and contributors on this site.
    I guess their ‘non-aggression pact’ and ‘right to life’ principle is more equal for some than others.
    As much as I also get and understand the ‘woman’s right to decide’ argument, every time I wrestle with the abortion issue, I decide in favour of the baby. I don’t apologise for that either.
