Who here has played the game Hitman? It is a third person game where you control a genetically enhanced assassin who is contracted to eliminate targets. A hitman is a person who eradicates people who have been marked by others for death. When thinking about this profession, who here thinks about abortion? Not many I am sure but apparently, the Pope thinks about this. According to the CNN website, “He asked if it was right “to do away with a human life to solve a problem,” adding: “Is it right to hire a hitman to solve a problem? One cannot do this, it is not right to do away with a human being, albeit small, to solve a problem.”
Does the elimination of a 4-week old embryo constitute murder? The question should be phrased as “is a 4-week old embryo human and should, therefore, have the same protections as human beings? Should law dictate what women can do with their bodies? Should we not let the scientist formulate when a fetus becomes a human since they are the most qualified? When do you think an embryo turns into a true human? Please comment below!
