The slippery slope argument is what's known as a logical fallacy. If something is wrong now, it will still be wrong in the future, regardless of whatever other descisions we make. Of couse, I'm a moral relativist, so as far as I'm concered what's morally right is whatever society believes is right. Still, if we start experimenting on babies just because we let a few embryos that were going to die anyway serve a useful purpose, then our morals weren't worth much to begin with.KillerShots said:It's a slippery slope. Sure, they were already discarded, and I agree it won't hurt anybody. But next time a similar issue comes up, there is precedent to dispose of embryos... Politicians will think that because people agreed to that much, it will be OK to take further steps in that direction in different situations. Perhaps eventually they will randomly take newborns for genetic experimentation because of this precedent. Be very careful with what messages you send to those in charge.
