No, Christ does not mention abortion and homosexuality. Get it right. You probably should not have an abortion.

So, are you trying to tell me that Jesus is OK with terminating pregnancies at 11 weeks from conception, but if you do it at 13 weeks after conception, you've committed murder and Jesus is angry with you? What's so special about how the infant develops in the 12th week? Is that when it gets it's soul?
You are kidding yourself saying Jesus approves of abortion.
Nope....Christ doesn't care if you get an abortion....it is not a sin.......

And if you believe it is a sin, then you are not a Christian believing in the teachings of Christ.

There's no forgiving, as neither is a sin.

If you believe they are sins then you are NOT a Christian.

You are correct. The Hebrews knew about and practiced abortion. There is an abortion in the Bible.
Jesus did not mention homosexuality IMO, although there are those who say that Jesus was married to a man (the one he told his Mother was to be a son to her).
The Religious Authoritarians use the civil regs of the tribe of Levi and Paul to condemn gay folks.
Which proves they are NOT Christians.

Killing does not equal "murder." There are plenty of instances when killing is approved of or ignored. The commandment is against murder.
There are instances when murder is approved of or ignored. We are not debating whether it is legal to have an abortion (murdering a barely formed person), we are arguing as to whether Jesus is going to tell you that you did the right thing when you meet him in Heaven, right? Certainly you can do any sort of sinning and still redeem your soul by being forgiven - but if your goal is to live by the teachings of Jesus, you should avoid abortions - Jesus would want you to take responsibility for the child you created.

Jesus was a Jew. Jews of Jesus era knew about and practiced abortion. There is an abortion in the Bible. Jesus never mentioned abortion.

There is no child until I make it. I get to decide whether to do that or not. Not YOU. Not the State.

http://www.jewfaq.org/sex.htm

Jewish law not only permits, but in some circumstances requires abortion. Where the mother's life is in jeopardy because of the unborn child, abortion is mandatory.

An unborn child has the status of "potential human life" until the majority of the body has emerged from the mother. Potential human life is valuable, and may not be terminated casually, but it does not have as much value as a life in existence. The Talmud makes no bones about this: it says quite bluntly that if the fetus threatens the life of the mother, you cut it up within her body and remove it limb by limb if necessary, because its life is not as valuable as hers. But once the greater part of the body has emerged, you cannot take its life to save the mother's, because you cannot choose between one human life and another.

Murder is never approved of or ignored. There is no statute of limitations on murder, for example. Hysterical dramatic lies do not an argument make. But if you Forced Birthers stuck to the facts, you would have no argument.

But tell me this:

We know that women have the same number of abortions whether it is legal or illegal. We know that one in every four women will have an abortion at some time in their reproductive lives. We know that most women who abort already have a child or children. We know this because abortion is legal and we can study it.

How do you propose to fund the investigation, trial and incarceration of 1/4 of the female population for murder and care for the children left behind? Bond issues? Do tell.

No one is arguing whether you are allowed to have an abortion - have as many as you like. No one is forcing you to be a parent or treating you like a dog - it just so happens that any person with a person growing inside them has no choice but to take responsibility for the situation, either by abortion or by giving birth. Women DO have that choice - as you have mentioned - even when abortion is illegal, abortions are still carried out.

BUT - your logic is flawed when you claim that Jesus approves of it because no one happened to quote him disapproving of it in the Bible. If the game is: find the verse where Jesus says don't have an abortion - I guess you win. The Bible is not that straight forward. I do know that the Bible tells stories of Jesus meeting people in the most horrible living conditions, living horrible lives, but he still did not advise women to have abortions to prevent people like this from existing. He advised that people CARE for their children, neighbors, and people they don't even know. That is the example that he created for people to follow. He advised against killing. Any good Jesus follower knows that.

If you feel so strongly about aborting children before they are able to have crappy lives - perhaps you should admit to yourself that your principles and ethics are not in line with those of Jesus. No one is forcing you to follow Jesus's teachings - and you are trying to manipulate them to suit your own views. Why not just leave Jesus out of this? You know what he would say about it if you asked him today.

Nope. I will make it easier for you. Link me to one case in which a woman was arrested, tried, convicted and incarcerated for having an abortion in America, both when abortion was legal and/or illegal. Unbiased sites only.

Just foaming away like a fruitbat does not an argument make. Well, at least to sane people.

Arrested, tried, and convicted by who? Jesus? Are you interested in following the teachings of Jesus or following the law? I can point out more than one discrepancies between the two.

Public health policy is not religious, for one. Neither is Civil Law. You cannot prove abortion is murder. So when you call some woman who has had an abortion a murderer, you are lying and sneering. And being a drama queen.

Jesus said not one word about abortion. Jews of his era knew about and practiced abortion. Jewish law permits and sometimes mandates abortion. Jesus was a Jew.

You are not my religious teacher. Let us get that straight right now. Fat chance you know more about the Bible and religion than me. God is the only one who can judge my soul.
