I have unusual thoughts on almost every subject. I am as Pro-Life as I can possibly be. I am strongly opposed to violence of any type. That includes rape, war, and (obviously) abortion. Everything I think, speak, and write must be filtered by the effect it could have on the lives of others. If I am in any way promoting violence accidentally, please let me know.

  1. I would argue that the conclusions don’t necessarily follow from the premises. For something to be homicide, there needs to be intent, which in this case there would not be.

    If you define homicide as strictly as “killing” something, then it depends how far you are accepting proximal causes as the cause of something. Is sex the most causal factor in the homicide? or is the size of the uterus? or the treatment of the doctors? or biological conditions emanating from the pregnancy itself? etc. etc.

    By the same argument you could add to the conclusion that sex is suicide, since in these cases the women, I’m assuming, voluntarily consented to sex.

    Event 1: A women has sex with a man
    Event 2: A women gets pregnant
    Event 3: She dies in childbirth

    Conclusion: sex is suicide.

    A very strange suicide though, since sex is meant to propagate the species. However, that would be disingenuous of me, since your sex is homicide argument would only be in cases where sex actually led to homicide. Would it be more accurate, then, to state that sex is analogous to Russian roulette?

    Interesting and provocative argument though, Jack Kerouac says something similar at the beginning of Dharma Bums.

    1. Thanks for commenting. You are correct in that sex could be thought of as suicide. Also my post was provocative because I was so curious how people would respond to this. There are many conclusions about the same events people can come to.

      The other, more serious reason for my post is meant to explain why I am a virgin.
