I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it. -- Mark Twain

Whom can I kill?

feet pin I saw a woman wearing a small pin in the shape of a pair of human feet. I asked her about it and she told me it was the size of the feet of a "ten week old unborn baby".

It had such an effect on me - I just can't stop thinking about it. I guess it shows that a "ten week old unborn baby" is a human being and we shouldn't kill it. It's a fetus - or feetus. It has feet.

But wait. Cows have feet (but no toes). Chickens have feet (but only four toes). It's okay to kill cows and chickens. I guess it's that fifth toe that makes the difference.

All right - I get it. The point of it is that the feet are perfectly formed at ten weeks. Therefore the baby has a soul - or sole - or two. I've heard there are occasional babies born with no feet, just stubs, or even no legs. I guess it would be alright to kill them. I have one foot slightly smaller with a missing bone at the ankle - been that way all my life. Perhaps it would be alright to kill me.

What is it okay to kill?
