I say "Bravo" to Monte Wolverton on this one. I see similar comparisons when it comes to being "pro-life" and "pro-death penalty", or in the over-emphasis of rights for the pre-born and the dying while not emphasizing policies which promote a higher quality of life for millions of Americans from birth to old age.

That's a good point, that so many people who think evolution is an evil idea, turn around and apply social Darwinism to less fortunate people. It's fortunate for them that they aren't bright enough to see how they contradict themselves. The cognitive dissonance would drive them crazy.

I only wish darwin's ideas applied to intellect. As my friend Adam put it recently, the desire to not reproduce would be an excellent trait to breed for (considering world population issues.)

Well, I'm a bit different. I'm very strongly pro-capital punishment, and I think abortion should be less common, but safely available. In short, I support anything that reduces the demand for abortion by reducing the frequency of unwanted pregnancies. This would also be very beneficial since many of the same steps to reduce that serve a dual purpose of reducing the transmission of STD's.
