quick but elaborate questions

timer Asked: Dec 7th, 2015

Question description

  1. According to Marquis, why is killing an innocent human being wrong?  How does this view relate to the abortion issue?  What other important implications arise from this view?

  2. Marquis considers the ‘discontinuation account’ as a challenger to the future-like-ours account of what makes killing wrong. Describe this view. Why does that fact that it is essentially past-focused undermine the view, according to Marquis?

  3. One might think that Marquis’ view commits him to claiming that contraception is impermissible, which would make his view implausible. How does Marquis answer that worry?
