Current Moral Problems Lecture April 5 A Defense of the (Extreme) Conservative View Don Marquis: “Why Abortion is Immoral” Marquis’ Position “…[A]bortion is, except possibly in rare cases, seriously immoral,…it is in the same moral  category as killing an innocent adult human being” (SE, p. 22). Why is it Seriously Immoral to Kill Innocent Adult Human Beings? Possible answers: Killing brutalizes the one who kills. The great loss to others Marquis’ answer: “The loss of one’s life is one of the greatest losses one can suffer” (SE, p. 22). Why is the Loss of One’s Life Such a Great Loss? It is not a loss we  experience , so how can it be a loss? Marquis’ answer: “The loss of one’s life deprives one of all the experiences, activities, projects, and  enjoyments that would otherwise have constituted one’s future” (SE, p. 22).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
