Today in class we finally started the oral presentations. There were three lucky people that were chosen, Masami, Aaron and Jane. The one that I can personally relate the most to is Jane’s presentation about “man versus nature”. She raised the question of whether it was ethical or unethical to change or even take control of the course of nature. She raised the issues of euthanasia and abortion, both of which I support. For euthanasia, I believe that people are allowed to choose when they want to die and I find it extremely cruel to take that right away from a person and personally don’t understand the logic behind it. As for abortions, I also support them and believe that a fetus bearer should be allowed by law to kill the baby. My logic behind this reason takes into account that humans often have reasons for making their decisions. If a mother were to abort her baby, she would have a reason for it in her mind. Disallowing abortion would only force the mother to take care of a child that she doesn’t love, or can’t support financially and emotionally.
I am not trying to insult people that are against euthanasia or abortion, so with that in mind please don’t flame.
