    No, it's not always bad. I can think of many reasons it wouldn't be bad, such as:

    Abortion
    Euthanasia
    Self-defense
    Putting to death someone who committed atrocities

    Re: Is killing a human always a bad thing?

    People die every day. Everyone dies eventually, and some people just need killing. Sometimes people have disputes that just can't be settled otherwise.

    And then there is killing in warfare, which is sometimes necessary.

    There are a lot of times when killing a human is a good thing. Other times, it's merely necessary.

    No, it's not always a bad thing. It's always regrettable to take a human life, but in some cases it's the better option.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Your directness is refreshing. You would make a fine philosopher king...

    we never can know all the ramifications when a life is taken.

    Re: Is killing a human always a bad thing?

    Of course not. There are many examples that I can think of where killing is not only bad, it's a demonstrably good thing. Killing in war, in self-defense or in the defense of others, etc.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    it is a fetus not a baby. it is a baby when it is born not one second before. it is a symbiotic life form attached to the woman.

    you might want to check the definitions of these words.

    It's true. Those claiming "pro-life" tend to be the most militaristic of all folk. And also very very pro-death penalty. Wanting to use it a lot, that's the average. Many "pro-lifers" are anything but. Other pro-life people like me try to extend that attitude in total.

    Well considering we are the only super power, most would disagree.
    no. that is what happens when the Bush administration would not sign on to the international courts.

    super my ass. a failing economy with 10% of your people out of work. a military that can't even end a war in Iraq. a military that can't find Bin Laden. People that are foreclosing on their homes hourly. in debt up to your asses to China. some super power that is very laughable.

    between China and the Federal Reserve bank the country is owned. suppose they called in the debts. What then would the super power be?

    Abortion is killing, you've taken human life. This is the exact same thing some on the other side try to do with war. Try to make believe that what you're doing isn't killing another human so you don't have to feel bad about it. But it is killing and you should feel bad about it.
