Dog Breeding

If you love animals and can't stand to see them in pain, this movie will break your heart, but it may change your mind about pedigree dogs.

I am a moral naturalist. It's wrong to cause pain, even indirectly. Creating a life that will be lived in agony is wrong. For those that object to abortion, I hope this at least gives you pause. I understand for some people it would be too painful to make that decision, too painful to "kill" your "child" (whether these terms apply is still debated, but science is currently on the other side). But given severe enough defects, there is clearly pain being experienced later on by something that is demonstrably a real person. Shouldn't that weigh into the decision?
