What Is Good?

I do not have the right not to be killed in the womb if I am an inconvenience.

I do not have the right not to be executed by the state if I become incapacitated, and in that incapacitation ugly, frightening, inconvenient, a burden.

Secularists keep telling us it is possible in the aggregate to be moral and good without believing in God.

I'm sorry, but I don't see it.

Orson Scott Card has written a wonderful essay about the principles of the case. He's a great writer who has had many books (science fiction, I believe) published. He's such a good writer that each short paragraph of the piece would be worthy of a quote...
