Yes I see where you're going with it. Beyond the question of seeing if we're special or not and to what extent, it seems to me that you're ignoring more pressing problems. You see, the amount of resources on the planet remain relatively the same, but our numbers are increasing exponentially. We're polluting our planet, which in turn affects our collective health. We're destroying the ecosystem. And the more of us there are the faster we're doing all this. These issues are truly a menace to our survival. Fretting over abortion negatively affecting our chances of survival seems silly to me in today's context.
And you never answered my question...Who chose us?
Before I type this reply, just asking a favor: can somebody explain to be how to quote different parts of a post separately. I get the quote tags, but I'm not sure what the numbers in the opening tag accomplish.
Our population problem is true, but my reply is that a combination of scientific advances and (eventually) government incentives for limiting numbers of children to one or two will take care of that problem. Note, I'm not referring to abortion when I talk about limiting the number of children, merely providing a "reward" for people who don't conceive more than 2. Aborting a child would not allow you to receive the incentive money.
"Who chose us" - We did.
