COVID and Right to Life

Started by Rick C September 11, 2021
It would seem there are very similar concepts involved in the idea of a woman's right to choose vs. a fetus' right to life and being forced to wear a mask and take a vaccine to reduce the spread of a deadly pandemic.  

Individual freedom vs. harm to others.  

In the case of abortion it comes down to at which point in development you declare a fertilized egg to be a person.  There is no unarguable point to draw that line.  I've heard some claim it should be as late as 13 years after birth.  This is why the issue has raged for such a long time with no clear resolution other than an arbitrary decision in the US some 50 years ago based on the viability of the fetus outside the womb.  

In the case of COVID it would seem to be a pretty clear matter of an overwhelming good to the population at large with virtually no chance of harm resulting from vaccines and literally no harm from wearing masks.  I believe the chance of harm from getting a vaccine is about the same as a month of driving in the US.  This is much like the tiny additional risk from radiation of granite counter tops or tanning in the sun even with sunscreen. 

I can get why there is debate about abortion.  I don't get why many of the same people who want to take away the right to choose feel it's OK to impose their will on other's health by promoting the spread of a deadly disease.

The ability to comprehend on-topic vs. off-topic posts and to not post off-topic material. Your brain fart of a post has nothing to do with electronics nor electronics design.

Neither does most of the stuff posted by our most prolific poster - John Larkin. I've been posting here for more than twenty years, and (and so has John Larkin) and there has always been quite a lot of off-topic content. -- Bill Sloman, Sydney

Well, his ad for selling Tesla is somewhat related to electronics.

I normally ignore everything this twit posts, but this just stood out. For days, the imbecile ignores a thread with meaningful content just to post the most absurd nonsense anyone in the group every posts. It is so amazing this guy tolerates the abuse he brings on himself. Or maybe not. It would appear that is why he comes here, for the abuse.

Yes! You certainly are. Twit! Now, much like Phil A, not be able to resist replying with more insanity, clearly showing his depravity. -- Rick C. + Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging + Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209

And you, you cretinous afterbirth - barely possessing brain enough to form a sentence, virtually every thread in sed either is off topic from the start, or quickly becomes off topic by the howler monkey rantings of your fellow cretins. So your Tourette-like outburst shows your inability to have a civil discourse within the group mores. Brain fart indeed. You must be remembering your own birth. -- Rick C. -- Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging -- Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209
