onemoresolo asked: That's one hell of a philosophical hypothetical you've got there. Life doesn't exist in hypotheticals, especially not ones where doctors and music lovers "hook up" a violinist to an innocent person. You can't compare abortion to a ridiculous, thinly veiled attempt to portray abortion differently. Famous or not, it's absurd and irrelevant to the decision of abortion. Clearly you can't be persuaded into a 21st century line of thought. Abortion is a personal liberty, just like owning a gun. Oh you.
Actually, the thought experiment was originally formulated as a defense of abortion—you know, the Defense of Abortion. So you don’t really have much room to complain about intent here.
"Life doesn’t exist in hypotheticals?" Care to elaborate on that one, Rousseau?
