Another interesting post, this time on the Oxford Uehiro Centre's Practical Ethics Blog, from Roger Crisp on the crossovers between different debates in applied ethics. In particular, he argues that thinking about an issue like climate change can help us to see what is going on in debates surrounding abortion. The general point, that issues in practical ethics shouldn't be considered alone, is an important one. As he says, we must be conscious of the implications of our conclusions in one area on what we can consistently conclude in another.
