    If you continue to refuse to answer, I will take the point as conceded.

    You can if you wish, but to have the kind of society where that fundamental chances that quickly, it would probably have to be some sort of global eugenic despotism, third Reich style, at that point, there are no universal rules and don't know how I would react as it would be overwhelming and highly depressing

    Yes

    Humans have a natural instinct against murder. The social forces required to remove that instinct will basically turn humans into another species. We would be in a situation of global enslavement as a minimum prerequisite. Evolution doesn't move that fast on its own.

    Thus being in such a society, humans freely murdering may be a minor issue comparatively as society itself burns down and the planet is destroyed due to the utter lack of empathetic capability. (People would have no qualms against nukes for example)

    You may not be able to breathe..

    But truthfully, what slave master would want that kind if slave anyway?

    Very few? In fact you can't name any, right?

    If Christian views are being forced on you how did you manage to remain a free thinker?

    If you looked after 'your lady' properly, or she been able to look after herself, perhaps she wouldn't have needed an abortion. But there are many others who are not in favor of abortion who are not Christian. Did you know that?

    Abortion is enough to answer your question, these goalposts don't have wheels

    The last stupid one I had to deal with were Sunday beer laws
