  • In my opinion yes, it's your own choice what to do with it and the starting point you have.

  • A child isn't a potential human, he/she is a human with potential. Simply because an individual hasn't breathed free air yet doesn't make them an object. We need to stop killing the unborn because doing so is murder. If a mother wanted to kill her five-year old because she wished she hadn't been pregnant that would be wrong, and so is abortion!

  • From an individualist perspective, yes, there can be no other values without the prerequisite value of life. Every living beings first value is life. Subjectively, any other perspective i could conjure, which are all authoritarian to the best of my knowledge, would rank others lives by their egoist prejudice and bias. All other perspectives are disrespectful to the individual, being it's own end, in and of itself...

  • Science and reasoning support that all human life is equal. Equality for all!

  • Yes. To wylted who voted no, somebody being a hero is perspective, like an war hero from Iraq who killed a bunch of Iraqi soldiers would be a hero to Americans, but portrayed as evil to Iraqis.

  • yes *disclaimer: when are you human? what is human? is a fetus human? is a serial killer human at the time he kills?

  • In my opinion the life of a fetus is slightly less valuable than other human life. Because there isn't a 100% guarantee the baby will be born, and it is totally reliant on the woman, it has slightly less value. Therefore I think that crimes committed against fetuses, should be punished a little less harshly than those against other forms of human life.

  • Vegans aren't people, lets be honest

  • No you don't get to be a piece of crap and then have people value your life as equally as a hero.

It's an easy option for me.

Innocent babies and innocent audits who spend their lives helping others matter more than rapists and thugs

No, poorer human life obviously has a lesser value.
TBR says2015-06-08T16:26:45.6274758-05:00
No. We treat "enemies" as less valuable. Criminals, foreigners, the poor. We obviously don't collective think all have the same "value"
Dilara says2015-06-08T18:05:02.9166694-05:00
TBR. Criminals are less valuable than innocent people

Eastern Europeans have NO value and should be purged.

If you pick no, you are correct.

Reece: That's your opinion. Your opinion is not fact.
reece says2015-06-08T18:45:40.3290325-05:00
@PetersSmith That's just your opinion.

You're valuation of x, y, or z's life doesn't make any Sh*t, unless x, y or z actively negates and devalues your life by action. It shouldn't matter the net worth of someone else until your net worth is diminished by another's activity in and of itself.

We're all born the same, so whatever happens in order to change that in the long run is justified.
