About a week ago I copied a letter that appeared in the Otago Daily Times relating to an article on inducing cows. Someone smarter than me has now replied to that letter in the following way:
Cows moo and people choose. Mooing is characteristic and an attribute of cows. Choosing is an attribute of people. Cows don't have the right to moo. They just do. People don't have the right to choose. They just do.
The woman who wrote about being appalled that the cow did not have the right to choose to abort her calf is saying it is good as long as you choose. People choose very bad things at times and society chooses to lock them up because they made the wrong choice. 'A woman's right to choose?' We have been terminating our children based on a meaningless slogan.
