If she hadn't been pregnant she probably would have thanked God in the moment but it looks like she has been thanking Him everyday of her life because she was.

Look, Rose...I didn't intend for my curiosity on the question of whether or not a woman who prays not to be pregnant, when she knows she already is, has prayed for a miscarriage or an abortion, to be a stick with which to beat you over the head.

The question wasn't "Did YOU pray for a miscarriage?"
It was "Is prayer for God's intervention in a pregnancy, tantamount to seeking an abortion?"

You took it personally, and I wondered why, if you so strongly believe that you weren't praying for a miscarriage. Because it seems to me you could have just answered 'no'.

Instead, you've spent pages of the thread professing that YOU PERSONALLY weren't praying for a miscarriage. I believe you.

Now my question is, however, "Do YOU still believe you?"

Because this endless protestation indicates it's not ME you're trying to convince.

And,I tried to go in the third person yesterday ..look back ..I was trying to get this thought through .
To all of you .

I believe abortion is killing a life God created ..most believers,do also ...so in order for s believer to pray for God to kill her baby it would be against His,commandment DO NOT KILL.

there might be someone who Would do that I DON'T KNOW,everyone ..But yo pray and expect Him to do it Would be foolish ..But foolish people do foolish things .

I really do not believe she would ask God to kill her baby if she believed ...And,I'm quite sure God is not going to kill a baby because
A,woman does,not want to be pregnant ..since He already formed the child in her womb...so again foolish request ..

Best answer I can give you ...

A woman who misses her period most likely assumes that she is pregnant(if she had sex of course). She may pray that she is just late and not pregnant. If she is pregnant, then she knows that God willed that conception despite her wishes that she wasn't. A woman of God wouldn't pray to God to have her miscarry unless, most likely, if she was raped and was in distress.

A natural death(miscarriage) is in no way comparable to a sharp instrument going in and ripping her baby to death, piece by piece.

God doesn't consult us in his creations. We co-operate in his plan when we have sex. Nobody is conceived by accident.

Here's my unsolicited advice for you. Stay pregnancy-free. PLEASE. In the meantime, go join the "I have a right to kill my unwanted child, "forum. I hear that Susan Smith,Andrea Yates, Casey Anhony and many proaborts have an active forum going.

Oh good grief. STO and his "hypothetical" questions.

God calling a life home via natural death hardly compares to a violent, barbaric practice of ripping a living human life to shreds.

Holy cow! How ignorant of him to even ask a question like that. I don't know who's worse though(him for asking or you for jumping on the bandwagon).

Is God calling your loved one home naturally the same as that loved one being shot in the head by a stranger?

Fine.

How about this. I'll take God out of it.

If a woman meditates on having a miscarriage and she miscarries, is that tantamount to an abortion?

Oh fercrysake Rose. I did not reference you. I read your post and thought of the question, so asked.

I've asked others a similar question and didn't get a straight answer then either. That question was, if a woman could cause herself to miscarry simply by wishing it, would that be tantamount to a miscarriage.

I've asked the question 3 different ways over the years.

Prayed for a miscarriage and got it = abortion?

Wished for a miscarriage and got it = abortion?

Meditated on miscarriage and got it = abortion?

Can you answer? Pick the one you're most comfortable answering. Clearly, it won't be the "praying" one.

The venue is different - the outcome is often the same.
If she hadn't been pregnant, I'm guessing she would have thanked god for that, too.
"What I said was, going to god to end a pregnancy, has the same intent as going to a physician to end a pregnancy."

Exactly. Same intent.

You know what I wonder every time I read these type of posts from Rose and others?

If they're so sure God won't answer the prayer for miscarriage, why does He grant a spontaneous abortion to those who don't want one? And why aren't they (posters like Rose, Ink, even JM) so sure of His reasoning then; beyond the oft repeated, "It's His will"?

One might think God is pulling pranks on Opposite Day, y'know?

So when a woman prays her pregnancy is healthy, thanks God she IS pregnant, is ecstatic, etc., obviously God "already formed the child in her womb", and she miscarries, then why do you suppose God killed the "baby"? Was her request foolish, as well?

Okay, so if a woman miscarries on her way to have an abortion, she isn't "guilty"? Would you say God relieved her of the burden of having the induced abortion, but granted her ultimate wish with a natural abortion?
