Masimo Pigliucci – Abortion ethics without the experiences of real life is just inadequate

I thought the debate was over. Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life? We sit and debate ethics in the ivory tower when we should base our ethics on real world outcomes.

Katelyn Campbell was the vice president of the Student Body at George Washington High School. Pam Stenzel is a Christian agony aunt type lady who gives out really bad sexual health advice and is an advocate of “Abstinence only Education” which to me is like “Endeavour to not Got Sick” as a method of disease …

Strawmanning the Abortion Argument

According to Marc Thiessen, our stance on Todd Aiken was pretty justified if only if we treat the statement by a Planned Parenthood official the same way.

Faith, Abortion and the Hippocratic Oath – Mississippi

Mississippi has not much to be proud of. It’s the state that leads the US rankings in teenage pregnancy rate due to a juxtaposition of faith, economics and social issues.

Not because she wanted one but because she needed one. She had a medical condition where her cervix prematurely dilated. Now there are …

Rights of the Silent Majority – 180

Earlier I spoke of my distaste for the hypothetical game and indeed for Ray Comfort’s take on it. The problem being that people tend to answer the obvious answer in a hypothetical game, that life seldom is yes or no and more often it is various different shades of grey.

Rights of the Silent majority – We’re not in Kansas Anymore

The people this will hurt are women and the poor. Abortion is a right for a reason, because it’s the woman’s choice to decide and for most women abortions take place in the first two trimesters.

Rights of the Silent majority – Death by a Thousand Cuts

It’s a well known fact that the best form of healthcare is preventative. In medicine there exists the idea of community medicine (an actual field in India) which consists of number crunching and ideas such as immunisation, contraception use, registry of drugs and education.
