(The intellect itself has begun to collapse.) Stealing is sometimes bad but sometimes good. Just as we see the effects of a dreadful cancer in sick organs scattered throughout the body, so moral depravity soils almost everything that the sufferer touches.We can sometimes judge the evil of one act by noticing the other evils to which its proponents fall.” but “Do I want to be known as the sort of person who behaves in this way? Instead the evil will grow like a cancer and spread its tendrils about the rest of our moral lives.” And make no doubt about it, the evil action strikes first and most keenly at the agent. I suppose we can construct a ladder of moral descent, thus.The first two methods I describe below have worked for me in separate instances for the two abortions I have paid for.I know other guys who simply did not say the right things or trusted her to “make the right decision.” Well, now they are stuck paying child support for children they barely see.
Yet there’s another reason why you should be candid, and it opens up what moral philosophy is really about: the development of those habits that distinguish a virtuous person.You need to bring up the subject of abortion with every ounce of verbal finesse and situation-appropriate sensitivity.You should sound as sincere as possible and tell her that you want her to be the mother of your children one day, but that now is not the right time to start a family.Everyone should, as often as they can.” What other evils will we find such people promoting?What other organs will be shot through with cancer? It’s from a recent article, by a self-styled libertarian, on three methods for persuading a woman to abort the child you’ve begotten in her womb (boldface and asterisks mine): Let’s face it: sexually active people have accidents. But we know that men have no reproductive rights in opting out of a being a parent.
