Pro-Choice or ProLife
Is this morality question unanswerable?

unanswerable ethical questions example: http://www.intenseex...-questions.html

I think Mercy before Judgement on our part.
Isn't prochoice social darwinism?

I’m not really sure what you’re trying to get at with your dilemma(s) Rico. I would need more information concerning how Pro-abortion could be moral and/or how judging infant murder has anything to do with mercy. Maybe I’m simply missing something here.

But, your examples (see link) concerning the Trolley and Organ dilemmas are flawed at their base. Their creator has committed the “False dilemma” logical fallacy, in that they restrict the ethical answer to only TWO conclusions, where there is actually at least three!

First - Ethically speaking, as a Christian, we fully understand that “no greater love, has any man than he lay down his life for a brother”. In the trolley dilemmas, given the information in both scenarios, we find out from the second dilemma that one body on the track will save all six of the mad scientist’s victims. Therefore, the Christian posed with this dilemma can answer by sacrificing themselves to save the others.

Second – In the Organ Dilemma, the Christian is not ethically bound at all to make the decision for the sixth person. The Christian can ASK that sixth person if they are willing to make that sacrifice, OR the Christian can, themselves, volunteer to be the organ donor.

Therefore these are NOT "unanswerable" ethical questions at all!

Thank you for the help... I was looking at James 2:13 for the mercy before judgement comment... Thanks for the clarification on the Trolley delimma, website. I was thinking abortion was a bad idea, we have pain killers when they're suffering(euthanasia bad idea)... For being prochoice... we don't even know how many hairs are on our head(finite knowledge). We can't make a moral dicision about this... nor should we IMHO (also see Isiah 55:8 , quickly found)

Feel free to knock down my arguments anyone...
And all of these arguments have been discussed before :-(

Could someone also explain: Isn't prochoice social darwinism?

I think so. Survival of the fittest. Eliminate the rest.
