Amatuer Debate

Well, I'm pretty drunk right now, but I think that's the best time to write this. I've just spent the last hour or so debating abortion with several friends. It's amazing how we can all be pro-choice, and yet still have such varying views on the issue.

I think it's because I'm extraordinarily intoxiated that I say this, but I haven't thought about an issue like this in quite a while. I was forced to think in lines I hadn't before, and to actually work through several lines of logic I hadn't been exposed to in the past.

The majority of our argument came down to the implications in having the Supreme Court make the decision instead of the majority (and the pros and cons that such an affect has on a democracy), but a lot of personal beliefs surfaced in the debate.

I'm still trying to decide on how I feel about 'hippies'.
