No individual has right to judge value of a life
My thanks, in return, to David Fullerton for his response of April 6 to my letter of March 29.
Obviously, we disagree profoundly on what constitutes a human being, and he has not answered my question of what kind of being the foetus actually, if not human. What is chilling about his response is the claim that a foetus is worthless if the pregnant female regards it as such. If the value of any being depends on whether a particular person just wants to give this being a value, we are culturally in deep and sinister trouble.
I can only hope that David Fullerton does not really mean what he says.
