I have always been a pro-life activist when it comes to issues of abortion or the death penalty and such. It has always been a matter of life preservation and on that i will never waver.
But there are many kinds of living things that we do not hesitate to kill and they’re living.Cancers and certain strains of bacteria that are all alive yet there is no restraint whatsoever if we want to destroy them.
If life is life and whatever lives commands respect of the same magnitude for its life force. By the aforementioned standard of killing ‘harmful life’ are we ever justified to kill lives of those who are potentially malevolent and can cause mass annihilation?
Or is life preservation the one and only truth for all lives or living beings.And if this is so then why do we kill cancers, they are alive aren’t they ?or are some forms of life superior to others?
This conversation scares me to say the very least because it can easily end up in conclusions such as those of anti-semitism,eugenics,colonialism and even slavery ,parts of history that i’d rather never even dare to try and re-purpose .For sure i know these stances are wrong but still i wonder ?
Is life stratified and if so by what?
