Yes, because in the history of the world, religious adherents have never differed on this subject. You`re aware that the bibole says nothing about abortion, right? For centuries, in fact, abortion was unimportant because was considered to begin at the first breath, not in the womb.

Nope, moron. When you are posed with a question as these poll respondents were ( http://www.gallup.com/poll/1576/abortion.aspx )and are offered only two possible answers - pro choice or pro life, the clear message is that there is a fundamental distinction between the two answers. If you don't understand what the distinction is then you are too ignorant to be participating in the poll. If you DO know what the distinction is and still do NOT choose "pro choice" after having said you agree with RvW, then you are deliberately skewing the poll results, making them invalid.
Either way it spells flawed poll.
Keep spinning, moron.
Actually the one spinning here is you.

Face it there are more than one way of looking at an issue that you seem to want to believe.
Welcome to the real world where not everything is as black and white as you been pretending to think it is all this time.

Where in real life black and white are polls apart. With a vast grey area between. That is the reality that you seem incapable and unwilling to understand.

Reminding others that YOU work for a Catholic organization got you all wee-weed up.
Mentioning that YOU take home a pay check from a Catholic org hit a nerve.
You're welcome.
Wha???

LOL. Why do you babble nonsense?? I do take home a paycheck from a Catholic charity. Why would that bother me? Catholic charity employs an atheist and allows porn to be viewed in their facility should bother ME because???? Did I mention the client that had an abortion?? You see, bozo, the people at the charity deal with the REALITY of life, not just the dogma crap that keeps you weak minded in line, toeing the line, and sending money.

Since I do not believe in your bs dogma, seeing it is not really upheld means nothing to me either way. I just like to help the people no one else gives a sh!t about. Including you.

NR, you should not ignore your pope. He is telling you you are sick. PAY ATTENTION to your ruler.

"Pope Francis called right-wing Christian fundamentalism a sickness.
During a daily Mass last week, Pope Francis called ideological Christianity “an illness” that doesn’t serve Jesus Christ. Instead, it “frightens” people and pushes them away from religion.

Pope Francis has been very clear about how he feels about ideological purity in religion. He’s been particularly critical of right-wing Christian fundamentalism. Pope Francis has shifted the focus of the Catholic Church to issues facing the poor and the sick. He has railed against economic inequality and has criticized the anti-gay and anti-abortion strains that have come to dominate the Christian Right here in America. Such ideological extremism is dangerous, not only to Christianity, but to the world. And Pope Francis said as much last Thursday.

Pope Francis called right-wing Christian fundamentalism a sickness.

During a daily Mass last week, Pope Francis called ideological Christianity “an illness” that doesn’t serve Jesus Christ. Instead, it “frightens” people and pushes them away from religion.

According to Radio Vatican, the Pope said:

“In ideologies there is not Jesus: in his tenderness, his love, his meekness. And ideologies are rigid, always. Of every sign: rigid. And when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… For this reason Jesus said to them:‘You have taken away the key of knowledge.’ The knowledge of Jesus is transformed into an ideological and also moralistic knowledge, because these close the door with many requirements. The faith becomes ideology and ideology frightens, ideology chases away the people, distances, distances the people and distances of the Church of the people. But it is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians. It is an illness, but it is not new, eh?”

If there are only two choices, you pick the one YOU think is more in tune with your beliefs. If a teabagger is asked their political party and only given the choice of republican or democrat, they`ll choose republican even if they don`t agree with most mainstream GOPers.

Did you pass out drunk before getting to where I also said it wouldn`t bother me if they were lifted?

Two issues arise in the third trimester: medical risk and viability. The risks for termination are much higher, and elective procedures with high risks are usually discouraged on a medical basis. The other, viability, means the fetus may no longer need the woman;`s systems to survive and issues of medical ethics arise. Then, of course, there`s the FACT that virtually all 3rd-term Abortions are performed for medical reasons on otherwise-wanted fetuses. Women don`t wait that long to abort because they don`t want to be pregnant.

What ?!? That makes no sense. That's no reason to support restrictions. A woman would still have the ability to assess the risks and choose to not have an abortion without such restrictions in place. You want to take that personal risk assessment away from her and force her to gestate ???
You are so full of shit it's coming out of your ears.

The "gray" comes in where you consider a fetus to be a baby, and others don`t.

I am far more concerned about those 39 living, sentient women than any half-formed potential lives that might not reach birth anyway.

Chuckles, you`re not smart enough to call anyone else dumb. Fetuses don`t have any rights and pregnancy is strictly the woman`s choice. If she chooses not to keep it, too bad. Suck it.

None of what you said is true. Tiller and Gosnell's aborted late term aborted babies wern't sick or mal formed. If they were they would have had their abortions done by their own GYN's in a hospital.

I'll repeat the question since it's obvious you didn't understand the first time around.

Give three reasons to be against legal abortion that has nothing to do with your faith/belief, nothing to do with your dislike of the procedure, and *everything to do with pregnant women facing unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies. What's in it for them?

*indicates the crux of the question

Is that what you think?

What about people who believe the developing embryo/fetus has no right to gestate above and beyond that of the woman pregnant with it? That the woman is the sole owner/decision maker regarding what is gestated and what isn't?

What about those people, Ink? Are they fooled into believing women should just roll over and die at the whim of an embryo/fetus, husband/father, church/state regardless of their personal circumstances?

You are wrong. It's that simple.

One, he didn't say anything about "human being". He said the fetus is not a baby.

Two, the phrase "human being" is philosophical, and hence subject to OPINION.

Three, WHO is getting their philosophy from "abortion clinics"? No one, that's who.

You're too stupid for words to convey.

One, what part of "virtually all" don't you understand? Sorry, nevermind, I keep forgetting just how stupid you really are. My bad.

Two, what he SAID is that women don't wait that long JUST because they don't want to remain pregnant. Prove that even THOSE women who went to Gosnell wanted abortion JUST because they simply didn't want to be pregnant anymore, and not for some other reason.

Where's your documentation backing your claims? No where. Because these are erroneous.

How can you lie to yourself over this issue? It's so consistent as to be convenient, imo.

Hi Katie! I agree about the Pope. These catholic cult crazies on topix are going to have to finally do some soul searching if they are going to follow this pope. I am guessing they hadn't seen the story based on the sudden silence from the rubber room crew.
