    Which of these do you find immoral?

    I can only fit a limited amount into the poll, so here are some more topics of discussion:

    Divorce
    Sex before marriage
    Birth Control
    Embryonic Stem Cell Research
    Wearing Clothes with Animal Fur
    Cloning Animals
    Cloning Organs
    Gun Ownership
    Drug Use
    Prostitution
    Homophobia
    Racism
    Violent movies/video games

    Feel free to add any other controversial topics you find immoral as well.

    My personal opinions:
    Abortion- Not inherently immoral, unless it is for reasons relating to the gender of the child and possibly late term abortions.
    Death Penalty- State funded murder is immoral.
    Doctor-Assisted Suicide- More immoral to ban it than it is itself.
    Polygamy- Depends on the individual relationship. A polygamous relationship is not inherently immoral, but the average one often subjugates women.
    Pornography- Amoral.
    Homosexuality- Amoral.
    Gambling- The practice of gambling itself is not immoral, but taking advantage of gambling addictions for profit can be immoral. It still should be legal though.
    Suicide- Very sad, but someone is not immoral for attempting it.
    Medical Testing on Animals- Depends on the conditions the animal is in. Unless it's for a life saving medicine, it is usually immoral.
    Cloning Humans- Immoral.
    Divorce- Amoral.
    Sex before Marriage- Amoral.
    Birth Control- Amoral.
    Embryonic Stem Cell Research- Moral if it is for genuine medical research. Amoral otherwise.
    Wearing Clothes with Animal Fur- Wearing it is not immoral, even though it is distasteful, but producing it is.
    Cloning Animals- Eh, amoral I suppose, but I'm not 100% sure.
    Cloning Organs- Moral if used for life saving purposes.
    Gun Ownership- Amoral.
    Drug Use- Amoral, although exposing people to second hand smoke can be immoral, especially if it's children who are exposed to it.
    Prostitution- Provided everyone in the transaction is there willingly, amoral.
    Homophobia- Immoral, but I'm not a fan of banning "hate speech."
    Racism- See homophobia.
    Violent Movies/Video Games- Amoral.

    All except abortion does people engaging in it mean nothing to me. As long as they are adults, consenting to it, happy, knock your self out.

    None of the above, altho I voted for medical testing on animals which I do think is wrong and must be stopped as soon as we can find other alternatives and must do so now when possible. I understand the 'why,' but do not feel that justifies it.

    I certainly think capital punishment something that should not be allowed the state, but morals have nothing to do with it.

    True. This we can agree on.
    It's not a moral issue for the most part and it shouldn't be done by the govt. It's more of a human rights/rights in general issue.

    Of that list, I take issue only with the animal testing.

    Cloning humans.
    Medical testing on animals.

    I don't support anything that's going to create problem for someone else to deal with.

    abortion and the death penalty

    Why isn't this multiple choice?
