"To have natural rights, one must be a rational moral actor with the mens rea to be held accountable for the consequences of one’s chosen actions. Can an embryo or a fetus be tried for a crime? Can an infant be tried for a crime? Can an animal be tried for a crime? Can Mount St. Helen’s or the San Andreas Fault or Hurricane Rita be tried for a crime? If the answer is no, whatever you’re asking the question about does not have natural rights." (06/20/11)
