  •  I don't really consider that a great statement. (0+ / 0-)

    It's fairly good, but it's subject to some pretty major interpretive faults.

    Here's one problem with that maxim.  It requires only that a person believes they are doing something to another person for their own good in order to still do it to them.  You can slip a whole lot of awfulness through that crack.

    Pro-lifers might argue that they want to prevent abortions because it's for the person's own good that they don't want them to later regret the decision.

    Then if there's a problem with the pregnancy and the woman dies, it was just a part of their god's plan.

    There's plenty of ways to get around that statement.
