One, it's nothing but an opinion, written by a journalist. It's not an official position on Judaism.
Two, even it doesn't refute what "anon" said.
Did you HAVE a point, Witless?
Yes my point was that I was asking anon his opinion on the article. DID YOU HAVE A POINT?

Uh huh, sure it was.

Like everything else you post as "proof" of your statements, you skimmed a bit, decided from that little bit it supported your claim that Judaism has changed, and posted a link.

You've been hanging around June too long.

It wasn't presented as proof. It was presented as another opinion.

I wasn't expecting you to mull it over, I presented it for someone more open minded.

I never followed your link. Religious beliefs are just that beliefs. Show me hard core data as evidence that a women is not a free person to do with her body as she wants.

Then why did you bring up Judaism?

You said
One can say that life begins at or near birth, measured by fetal viability outside the mother’s body.(Judaism affirms something close to this position.) After all, somewhere between 50 and 60 percent of all embryos conceived miscarry. Not to mention testn tub fertilization

==========
Because different religion has different beliefs just as each individual is responsible for their own beliefs.
A free woman has the freedom to do what she wants with her body and does not have to have beliefs in a religion. I could not care less what a religion tells you to do. If history is any measure of behavior, laws do not stop women from ending pregnancy. Being legal was just more profit for doctors. I suspect that the church started losing some cash when it was made legal.

He brought it up, because the poster to whom the reply was directed brought it up first.

Then you horned in on the one thing you thought would divert the conversation, in a direction away from the gist of the original conversation.

It's what you do.

It's all you can do.

A pregnant woman is a mother. A mother is a parent.
When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her unborn baby. Alcohol in the mother's blood passes through the placenta to the baby through the umbilical cord. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and a range of lifelong disorders, known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). There is no known safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy. Drinking alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy can cause the baby to have abnormal facial features. Growth and central nervous system problems (e.g., low birthweight, behavioral problems) can occur from drinking alcohol anytime during pregnancy. The baby’s brain is developing throughout pregnancy and can be damaged at any time.
If a woman is drinking alcohol during pregnancy, it is never too late to stop. The sooner a woman stops drinking, the better it will be for both her baby and herself.

What do you say about the thousands and thousands of fertilized embryos in freezers across the nation, and the ones flushed away by in vitro clinics daily, which are thought of as 'extraneous' by the parents?

Do you denounce those places, and rail against them as well?

Or do you reserve your sanctimony and abhorrence for women who decline to remain pregnant?

Just checking.

Are pregnant women to abstain from receiving sacrament for the duration of their pregnancy?

How did Europe survive all these centuries? But maybe Martin Luther and Pope Urban II were born with fetal alcohol syndrome.

Just go back to your solitaire game Tupelo and Rio Linda residents. This doesn't concern you.

Embryos can no more be fertilized than adults can be fertilized. You are insane.

Laws do not stop women from using drugs, yet drugs are illegal. Laws do not stop women from driving drunk, yet drunk driving is illegal. As should abortion be illegal.

Way to dodge the question. Do you defend the lives of fertilized ova which are flushed by in vitro fertilization clinics, or do you reserve your sanctimony and abhorrence for women who decline to remain pregnant?

Ova can be fertilized, however the term "fertilized ova" is a misnomer. Since once fertilized, the ova no longer exists, instead a new human life has begain. Misnomers often arise because the thing named received its name long before its true nature was known.
Loaded question
A loaded question is a multiple choice question which fails to disclaim the implied suggestion that an exhaustive list of applicable choices is being offered.
Example Question: Have you quit smoking?
Problem: A simple 'yes' answer to the aggregated question implies a tacit acknowledgement on the part of the respondent that he or she used to smoke, whereas answering 'no' self-identifies the respondent as an active smoker. Neither choice is applicable for a respondent who has never been a smoker.

Abortion being made illegal would FORCE women to stay pregnant and give birth against their will. That is precisely what the ANTI-CHOICE movement wants, and that has been clear from 1973.

What you're pissed about is that abortion IS legal and a woman can choose NOT to stay pregnant and give birth. Too bad for you. Motherhood is OPTIONAL for women, not required. Live with it.

Still a dodge, rather than an answer.

I'll infer from your refusal to commit to a response, that you couldn't in fact, cared less about all these 'women' in petri dishes and nitrogen flasks, which will never be born, but will eventually be flushed down a sewer. It's only the women who decline gestation and choose to abort their pregnancies, on whom you heap your scorn and opprobrium.

Like every other fetus worshiper out there, you're a hypocrite.
Unlike most, you're also an alien life form.
I'm imagining that no human woman has agreed to carry your offspring, and that this is the real reason you are so virulent in your criticism of us.

And you probably smell bad, too.

Our society has promoted laws that are not enforced and then people disrespect the law. It is common sense not to drive drunk and many people are on drugs made legal by the marketing of drug companies for a profit with regard of an individual's life.

Laws are not a replacement for individual common sense. The citizen can not afford the laws or the enforcement and punishment.

Welcome to government provided education and standardization. It is the law and you want more laws to shortcut a much more complicated subject?
