Isn't it interesting you can be fined for crushing a fragile turtle egg, but killing an unborn baby is just hunky.......

There are two philosophical points that can be made about abortion as well as Rush's financial point.

1. Is the relinquishment of the the virtue of responsibility. For all our evolutionary history (ours as well as all species) we are driven by the force to procreate. In mammals especially, that has also evolved into the trait of caring for and nurturing your young. That role is built into our genes as part of adulthood and evolution has made it to where that responsibility drives almost everything we do. As we abdicate that as a culture or even a species, we are telling our inner programming that we are not ready for that role and thus, we remain stuck in a youth mindset where you don't have responsibility. I often find it funny when the left accuses the Right of being religious nuts when many things they believe fly against the evolutionary make up of us as a person and our world. Evolution has made is to be a machine that procreates and takes care of young. It is the very core of nature. The left is giving up on that is almost a religious act against nature in the same way monks to it (but at least for the latter they are honest about their intentions). (the same idea can be said for almost anything as liberalism fights evolution and nature or at least separates man from nature as though we were something otherworldly from Greek mythology ordered not to interfere).

2. It rejects the principals of individual rights which is the very foundation of progress in society towards liberty. Abortion says in part, that during some point in your existence, through no fault of your own, you are not an individual (as defined by being a unique being with unique DNA from any other individual). You are therefore subject at the whim of another to have your existence stolen away from you. Yes, you are a dependent individual to the mother, but there again is where liberals go against nature and evolution, both of which tell us that the baby is not just a tissue mass part of the mother but a unique life which is a product of millions of years of evolution and no real scientist would call just another 'tissue mass that is the mother's body'. The only way to justify abortion philosophically is to again reject science and create a religious mentality around it where there are no unique individuals but instead, we are part of a collective Gaia consciousness in which all life belongs to each other and some life is more valuable than other.

Much of the left's philosophy can also be boiled down as to a rejection of science in a way to control existence, or simply a rejection of rationalism replacing it with emotion.
