    Of course we do on some base level. This does not translate into morality. Morality is subjective from person to person so absolutes do not exist.

    The question was "is the killing of a human always bad thing." The consensus in law and even on a moral level is no.

    In your opinion, yes. Contrary to what you may believe, I enjoy reading your opinions. I also have great respect for the fact you stick by your principles. I wish more people would.

    In the end though, it contains no more validity than anyone else's opinion. Being my opinion is also backed up by hundreds of years of law, I think I have the advantage this time.

    Folks are NOT talking about rights here. They are talking about instincts, desires, morals and behaviors. Unless someone can define rights in a way that I am not seeing, there are NO rights that exist, naturally. If you believe that killing a human is bad, that is your MORALS. A human has no RIGHT to live. They have a desire and an instinct. That's about it.

    Always a bad thing? No. In some cases, an evil needs to be removed.

    Even if it's completely justifiable, I cannot imagine killing being a good thing. If you shoot someone in the head who was trying to mug you, are you going to be totally excited about it? Probably not. You'll more than likely be in shock. I guess my opinion on the matter is that killing is certainly the last thing one should resort to.

    From the OP:

    You do not have to regard to it as a good thing in order for it to be considered as not bad.
    Not bad does not necessarily mean good, there is a middle value.

    You may feel it necessary, but it's still not a good thing to kill someone. Ending the life of a fellow human is not a good act.
    It is if that act permanently stops a murderer,punishes those who deserve death,stops a crime from happening or permanently stops some other evil person then killing is a good and moral act.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
