Hey DDX, might be in your best interest to not immediately judge the responses of people participating in a thread based on the discussion of ethics. I'm not sure if there was sarcasm in there, but yeah - when it comes to people I spend time with on a regular basis, I have *very* high standards. I don't have many friends, but the ones I have are ones I'll have for life.

As for it being a 'one liner' it's terribly simple question, and you got a simple answer. I won't be back.

Arg, I meant to say that everyone's responses were very very good! I especially enjoy yours because your posting reminds me of mine sometimes, very reserved and very concise. I really like everyone's posts. The point of this thread is to make you think about decisions and compare your ethics with everyone else's. I will not judge you on your decisions because I am human too. I will give my response after someone has responded to my question that I have posted. Sorry if I offended anyone. I appreciate everyone's good insight.

New question by tonight or tomorrow.

I would go to summer school but then talk to my freind and tell him that he should tell the teacher what he did and try to make it all better.

It is time to elect the world leader, and yours is the deciding vote. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates:

Candidate A: He associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologers. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks up to ten Martinis a day.

Candidate B: He was ejected from office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a large amounts of whisky every evening.

Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn't had any extra-marital affairs.

-Jack London, 1993 "Questionable Ethics"


who would you choose?

and onto the second Question, as to make you think some more (sorry!)

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight children already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Start thinking! and respond!

Most likely i'd go with candidate C, but since life has a nasty way of biting you in the ass when you least expect it therefore turning C into the worst candidate, so i'd also have A as a back-up.

I would recommend that she has an abortion, because either this woman has the worst luck in the world or either her or her partners DNA code is screwed up beyond belief to create mutations like that, another reason is that considering that she already has to take care of so many kids who are disabled, it is highly unlikely that she would be able to take good care of the newborn. 2 healthy children out of 8 isn't a very good statistic.

Hmm using your head, I like it.

I would recommend that she has an abortion


I would think the same, because 2/8 is a horrible chance of trying to let a child lead a happy life.

I won't answer the first question. Because it would ruin it from everyone.
