Quoting Ellie Shikari:" People like that who's views are based on ignorance will never be able to accept anything that goes against what they believe... So I just remove myself from any conversation like this. "
no i think you are not following me....
his views are based along with many others on his religion and the importance of that life. its a valid enough reason to be pro life, when you view the life of the baby higher than the mothers "body" or whatever. i can certainly see where he is coming from. all life is sacred and it is, or should be- in their mind murder. its just accepted by society.
i dont think he is ignorant, he just has different values.
I would be the ignorant one to remove myself from any conversation like this i believe. only surrounding myself with things i agree with, idk thats not right.
but it is hard for me to expose myself to it without feeling really bad.
idk i just thought about ethics some more last night, and idk i definitely view the world differently than he does. I am comfortable with my way of thinking but i do know its more calloused than most, so it does make me wonder if maybe im overcompensating to help me cope with the world in general. i mean more than the abortion, my first loss, death in general. its hard when you dont have a religion. anyway when i was a kid i would view life as sacred too, every living thing, i would save animals if i could....even a tree branch once lol. i think it just hurts because my value, what life means(or meant) to me, is completely shattered. im not sure what i think, or if this calloused view is what i really think or like i said if its just me coping.
