Considering Life

Suppose there is uncertainty about when human life begins. If a hunter is uncertain whether a movement in the brush is caused by a person, does his uncertainty lead him to fire or not to fire? If you’re driving at night and you think the dark figure ahead on the road may be a child, but it may be the shadow of a tree, do you drive into it, or do you put on the breaks? If we find someone who may be dead or alive, but we’re not sure, what is the best policy? To assume he is alive and try to save him or to assume he is dead and walk away?

Shouldn’t we give the benefit of the doubt to life? Otherwise we are saying ‘This may or may not be a child, therefore it’s alright to destroy it.’
