Couple May Sue Over Discarded Embryo
the part that bothers me is the statement that 'life begins at conception' or fertilization, or whatever.
a lot of these groups are using religious backgrounds to justify their statements. not that there's anything inherently wrong with that in my opinion, but when that's done blindly and to the exclusion of all else, then it bugs me.
a little background on me, i am a Christian, and i also believe in proof. i personally believe there need to be a certain amount of development, something more than a parasitic lump of flesh, before a soul enters that flesh and makes it a body. Especially considering that somewhere between 20-80% of pregnancies spontaneously abort themselves (and the women never know, they think they're just having a late/bad period). i don't believe a mandatory statement my any government or private organization can claim that life begins at fertilization, with out SOME sort of basis. i am pro-choice, for first trimester at the very least, though i personally find abortion repellent. i'm willing to have my opinions/beliefs altered... but as of yet, no one's managed to do so.

The modern world actually does make feeling good about one's self easy for the lazy person if you really think about it. For instance, the other day I was in the parking lot of a Super Walmart
I put my cart up.
That's right, and as I was walking back I thought to myself "I just walked two measley aisles over and I feel accomplished for today. Why? Because so many of these schmucks didnt. That guy over there turned the cart over on the little island thingie so it wouldnt roll. That was nice, but I still did one better."
The easy way to feeling smug, is this wrong? =P Current Mood: amused
