    Default Environmentalism and Abortion

    I am curious about some peoples' views on the future. I find that some people possess, simultaneously, seemingly contradictory views. This is a question of value: do you place any value on the lives of people that would be around after you die? Is this more broad than just to your kin, i.e. do you value future generations generally rather than solely your children?

    Do these beliefs, either way, play a role in your actions and/or views on the environment?

    Do they play any role in your views (or actions) regarding abortion?

    I simply cannot philosophically grasp the concept of simultaneously supporting the concept of preserving the environment and also of supporting the "right to choose" to kill one's fetus. What, exactly, could you possibly value to justify those simultaneous positions?

    Edit -- Many people define things differently, so I use the terms environmentalism and "right to choose" loosely.
