re: #62 klys (maker of Silmarils)

Like I suspect is true for a lot of other female Lizards, the abortion discussion is not a logical/philosophical one for me. This is reality, a reality that has some very real potential ramifications for me as a woman in the US.

It is necessarily a logical/philosophical/ethical debate as well, regardless of what negative things are happening in reality. So are the issues of personhood, life, death, freedom, bodily autonomy, equality, justice, war, greater good, lesser evil and so on. They may have a direct relation to the real world and they can be treated on their own terms. Assumptions can be analyzed. Definitions can be taken to their logical conclusions. One can’t really escape from the philosophical inquiry.
