    How is it that when people don't want kittens they wait for the litter to be born then give them away; but when they don't want babies, they abort the process?

    Warning, my social/political sensitivities are on high alert to day for some reason

    there is plenty of people who give up unwanted babies for adoption, and also plenty of people who kill unwanted kittens..

    Your question is very suggestive and not based on anything solid IMHO..

    Perhaps that's why it was a question, and not a statement of fact. IMHO

    Perhaps I have been too smooth in delivery to be effective in communicating my dismay at our (collective humanity) willingness to sacrifice our offspring.

    Of course, if the first question seemed like a lightning rod, you would fall over in your chair to read the second question, which I had delayed posting:

    "Has it ever occured to the proponents of embryonic stem cell research that the involuntary donors of the stem cells may in fact be the ones who were going to develop the desparately sought-after cures?"

    Now this is a far better question, a real good one actually.

    here's my view of the answer:
    probably not, the unwanted embryo's won't grow up in a supportive environment and most likely will not get a college degree and will not be able to develop that cure.
    (this also is a very broad generalisation too btw)
    Also there is more involved in an abortion than just the child, the mother for one is a mayor part of it.
    Say the father is a ******, how much love would that child get? even when adopted, it will always have a chip on its shoulder.

    But it is a very good philosophical question indeed

    I'll start worrying about aggregations of 8 humans cells (with the theoretical potential of developing into a human being) once no fully grown and conscious children die from starvation any more.

    Here's an unaswered question, just to stay on topic: Why is it that I always hear religious people complaining about stem cell research, but never about contraceptive coils, even if those destroy 8 cell (or more) stage embryos all the time, without potential life-saving effects?

    While they are some of life's unanswered questions...do they really qualify as one of life's little unanswered questions? Which in and of itself is also one of life's unanswered questions. [Irony]

    Why is it that, when looking into a mirror, we confuse left and right, but not top and bottom? I really don't have a good answer yet.

    Perhaps it's time for a new thread (collective.."OH NOOOOOOOOOO") for such discussions (contraception, Invitro fertilization, surrogate parenting, sexual revolution...., and research opportunities that result (or are salvaged) from such).

    In case a new thread has no interest... I think clulup's question has an answer. And, it is remarkably similar to the answer to my questions -- the joint-emphasis on personal autonomy and personal convenience.
