from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: Do we have an absolute right to have children?

Dear friends,

This Sunday we are discussing: Do we have an absolute right to have children?

Of course there is a difference between having a right and demanding that we exercise the right. But the dichotomy lies in the fact that rights are rational concepts and children biological beings. how can we reconcile biology and rationality? And if we start speaking of right does this imply a duty on the children to be born. Absurd as this idea might be, it is a product of the dichotomy. After all everything we do has consequences and the consequences of rights are duties. I think there is a way out of this absurdity but I need to think about it a bit more about it.

In the meantime Migues has sent me the following message for those who have the time to go to a tertulia on Wednesday:

Estimada amiga, estimado amigo,


Un grupo de amigos hemos decidido reunirnos en tertulias distendidas y cordiales sobre temas científicos y tecnológicos de actualidad (ver documento adjunto).

Siempre que sea posible contaremos con la presencia de un científico o tecnólogo, que disertará durante media hora antes del diálogo en sí (hora y media).

Tenemos el gusto de invitarte a participar como tertuliano o como ponente de futuras reuniones.


Recibe un saludo cordial,


Miguel Gª Palomo
