Again a good idea, the problem is that resolution in not always possible. In the example you gave (abortion), I don't believe the state ever has rights in the matter until after birth, when a new citizen has been created. I believe the rights of the mother (to chose) are inviolable till then.

Thanks Brian for some good thinking, though I don't agree with your final point. You really think its OK to kill an 8 month old fetus? I might agree around 3 or 4 months, but not 8. However, I'm not as interested in moral answers as I am in moral process.
