A recent dialog with another got me thinking to write as clear a statement as I could on two issues: abortion and capital punishment.
1) An abortion isn’t necessarily morally wrong. If the case is that the fetus is unwanted, it should be destroyed as soon as it is safely possible. That is, before it is born and becomes a person.
2) Death penalties are unethical because they are the premeditated execution of an incarcerated person. Killing a person under such circumstances is wrong because that person (presumably) wants to live.
