All life has a right to live. Otherwise life would

never have been CONCEIVED. Granted upon arriving one is confronted with the laws of the jungle. Eat and/or be eaten. One should S not argue that a human being does not have a right to life. Including those conceived down to the zygote level....once the egg is fertilized. It is philosophically sound. But if people are bent on demeaning the sanctity by various false arguments, that is our current political reality. Because some thug of one nation and political bent wants to murder wholesale a segment does not negate the right to life. Every human being automatically has this human right. This is why I like President Carter. You make the assumption that this basic right was "never accorded." This is hubris that mimics God. We did not invent life. Humans cannot accord this simple truth. But certainly humans are quite capable of killing life with every rationale known and some yet untried.

          Stop destroying the natural environment. Our confabulation is a artificial connivance about which its structure is a death trap for the natural world. I am not sure a "right" is involved in... more

            I don't think we or any other creatures are trying to kill a living planet. Most are just trying to survive and thrive until our own death, and hopefully the planet will live on to support future... more

              We say He made us in His image. More like we made Him in ours. Enough never is. Good enough never is good enough. I tinker with and practice two things, never reaching "good enough." My music, and my ... more

                Two worthy endeavors, I'd say. I've been picking around on the piano a bit myself lately, and will probably do more of that over the winter months since I won't be outside as much working in the yard ... more

        There are many forms of life on this planet that exist to be eaten, to be killed as you noted. So, clearly, plankton that are eaten in uncountable numbers every day do not have a 'right' to life.... more
