In your opinion: 1) Is a fetus worth as much as an adult? 2) Is a woman worth as much as a man? 3) Is a person with Down's Syndrome worth as much as a genius? 4) Is a poor person worth as much as a rich person? 5) Is a homeless person worth as much as a CEO? 6) Is a brown person worth as much as a white person? 7) Is an Iraqi child worth as much as an American child?

Yes. All humas were created equal. One example is that all humans die. When you are poor, your problem is food and when you are rich, your problem is how to be safe from robbers. All have their own problems.

how very true... money seems to be at the root of most people's problems.. either not enough or so much that they live in fear because of it.

In my personal opinion yes they are all worth the same amount. 1) A fetus still has the potential for greatness whereas an adult has taken their path for the most part. 2)I know for myself that I am as worth just as much as a man. 3)I know a child who was born with Down's Syndrome and who's to say that he is not a genius? He is the sweetest child I have ever met and always has a smile for everyone. 4 & 5) Just because a man has no material wealth does not mean he is poor. 6) God doesn't care about the color of our skin, why should we. 7) A child is a child. If there were an emergency I would do my best to save them all. They are the future!

In a lot of cases a fetus is worth more than an adult. An innocent child is certainly worth more than a charles manson or a jeffrey dahmer. Wouldn't you agree? Is a woman worth as much as a man? Well, in a perfect world, they would be treated equally. This, however, is not a perfect world. A child with down's syndrome is a true treasure. They smile so easily and show pure love to all around them. Geniuses, on the other hand, tend to be lost in their own world and don't show the normal emotions. The difference in a CEO and a homeless person is one simple business decision. What a boring world we would live in if all were the same color. A child is a gift from above, no matter where they were born or to whom and should be treasured. Hope i answered all your questions. If not, feel free to give me a yell. LOL.

I wouldn't say that an innocent fetus is "worth" more than a Charles Manson or Jeffrey Dahmer, but I would say that if it came down to a choice between the two, it would make more sense to save the innocent fetus. But there are other times when it would make more sense to sacrifice the fetus (if the mother would die unless she aborted). I don't believe that is a black and white issue. But I also don't believe that particular question is answered based on worth as much as it is based on choosing the lesser of two evils.

1) I don't believe a fetus is a human being. Not until it's reached the three month marker. And even then, it is still a symbiont within the mother and therefor an already born human has more rights. Every already born, living human being is equal to every other already born, living human being. In my eyes, at least. I don't delude myself into thinking anyone else should live by my views.

Yes all humars are created equal. How can one person be "worth" more than another person? Or as a matter of fact what is a person worth anyway and what do you judge their worth by? I wouldnt see how anyone could be less of an important person that someone else.
