In this text, Jeffrey Reiman argues that an overlooked clue to the solution of the moral problem lies in the unusual way in which we value the lives of individual human beings - namely, that we value them irreplaceably. We think it is not only wrong to kill an innocent human child or adult, but that it would not be made right by replacing the dead one with another living one, or even several.control over abortion decisions assumes that fetuses dona#39;t have so strong a Womal Right to life as to make abortion always wrong, ... The argument from viability might be understood as one that does take a position on the fetusa#39;s moral status.
