A lot of conversations get much easier when you don't believe in the concept of a "soul". I actually find it weird that nobody ever debates that specific bit. We'll fight and yell and scream over Gods and the what is or isn't "alive", but nobody ever questions the "soul". I think we should.A fetus has no soul,
I agree that law is (or should be) in some way based on some sort of morality system, but I strongly disagree that it is (or should be) based on "judea-christian" values. There are other perfectly valid sources of moral judgement. Alternatively, you could argue that the purpose of law is not to maintain morality, but to maintain the health of society. Religion need not have anything to do with it.The "moral law" that dictates right from wrong in our legal system is based on judeo-christian values. Where do you guys want to draw the line?
