A Matter of Conscience Society and the values of others around you is where your conscience comes from This however is a deformed conscience It has been molded by societys views not your own Just because society taught you to believe in something doesnt make it right In the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by Mark Twain Huck overcomes the societys conscience and goes with his sound heart Huck has a sound heart that outweighs his deformed conscience which society has given him For instance Huck was helping Jim who was a runaway slave escape to freedom A great example of his deformed conscience is when he was going to turn Jim in he thought Well I just felt sick But I says I got to do itI cant get out of it 89 After that though his sound heart comes through and he thought Spose youd a done right and give Jim up would you felt better than what you do now No says I Id feel bad 91 The society around him taught him that helping a slave like that was an awful thing to do but he was an outsider to society so he wasnt as corrupted and let his sound heart overcome his deformed conscience An example of a deformed conscience that I have an issue with is abortion It is legal but there are many people who have different views on it based on their corrupted conscience One side says that abortion is bad because they believe it is killing a baby that isnt even born yet and wont have a chance for life Another reason they believe it is a bad thing to do is because the person having the abortion should be lucky they can have babies because some people cant and they could always give it away to be adopted The other side of this issue is the side that is for abortion Women
