" science is beginning to encroach on every level of our volition". and to me, that is a frightening social concept. it doesn't have anything to do with the right to have an abortion verses the right to life. it has to do with the ability of science to keep things alive and the ability of science to really control our lives.
How come when it's us, it's an abortion, and when it's a chicken, it's an omelette? are we so much better than chickens all of a sudden? when did this happen; that we passed chickens in goodness? name six ways we're better than chickens. see, nobody can do it! you know why? 'cause chickens are decent people.
