Likely- they already charge pregnant women..
That sucks! In that case they should price it like cargo...by the pound. And that would give good incentive for some to go on a diet :-)
Well, in natural law- most siamese twins didn't make it to the age of reason...
That's what I was thinking. It is a mutation of sorts, and mutants rarely survive.
But based on the success often of medical intervention to separate such twins, I'd treat them as two people.
Okay, but they are two equals. I doubt very much one could call for the other to be killed or "aborted". Though sometimes that is necessary for the other to survive.
Not if she's being forced into it due to being unable to care for the child...
Well, she can always check into the ER :-), give birth, and run off...The "force" to abort is still an internal decision.
It would be better for the species to replace the economic system with something just and merciful.
Exactly. So do that and the abortion rate will plummet to almost zero. Again, deal with the cause. And if the economy is actually forcing women to abort. Then the economy is the worse of the two. In fact it wouldn't be "abortion". Medically, it would be a miscarriage, literally, and figuratively(of justice).
True, but economics has nothing to do with nature, and everything to do with greed.
Oopsy-daisy...At this point in our evolution, we are still every bit as natural as the weeds growing in your back yard. There's not a thing we have done that couldn't be clearly be illustrated on the Animal Planet. It looks all fancy and stuff, but the motivators are just as primitive as what's in single cell bacteria. We are complex, not different.
