I've always found it interesting that the commandment says you shall have no other god befoe him--not that there WAS no other god but him. And who gave pharaoh's wizards the power to perform THEIR miracles?

Wrong. Those are words written by others who claim those things are what he said. It's hearsay. And in no way refutes my belief, because even THOSE words don't say there aren't other Gods, or invalidate other religions. They just claim the way to his own God.

I agree, all that plus asking them to take a little time to be sure this is what they really want to do and to fully understand just what a fetus is. Do you think they should make a rushed decision about something that may affect them for the rest of their lives? They so often do.
At the clinic where I volunteer, we take much more than a long time to make sure they want to terminate the pregnancy. They know exactly what is going to happen and what it means. We require that the client tell us, in her own terms, what she expects to happen. Sorry, my friend, you will not find us deficient in our client education and counseling. And, of course, you really don't know that "they so often do" make a rushed decision. How often is often? Where do you get your numbers? Again, just your opinion based upon your complete lack of knowledge on the subject. Okey, dokey, dear:-)

Why is HE confusing the kids? The believer would be just as guilty of doing so.

No I didn't. I said that if 'one of my children' turned from Christ, I would tell them they were crazy.
He 'is' young and doesn't understand the 'confusion' he causes in the kid's minds. I never said 'he' was confused and as far as I know, he has always been an atheist so there is nothing to bring him back to. Besides not my job.

Why should we believe 2000 year old hearsay with no archaeological or historical evidence to support such claims?
You should believe whatever you want.

Wow. And it was such a simple analogy that even TomTroll understood it. I should have known you wouldn't get it.

He's not your son too? He's not family? He's not interferring with your daughter's religious education of your grandchildren?

Forget it, Witless. I'm guessing this point will sail right over your empty little head, too.

She seems to be too stupid to understand that these women likely didn't TELL their families they were going to get an abortion, so that when they started having problems, the family wouldn't have known the cause. And if the doctor who saw them at that point didn't want to ruin the dead woman's reputation, he likely would not say what he knew. He could have told the family other causes. We're talking at least 40 years ago, after all.
Who is stupid to believe that a doctor would be more interested in protecting the reputation of the woman than protecting his own rear from being prosecuted for negligent manslaughter.

The pro choicers on here convinced me that the abortion would have been done by a doctor.

I'm not sure if anyone of you has seen this and in the event y'all haven't; can we take a moment of pause on this debate and say a prayer for the kids and adults murdered in Connecticut this morning?

Thanks!

Some holiday gift the families of the 18 children dead will have!!!

True it was the contradiction that was confusing. I have always felt that parents should present a united front to the kids.

You are unique. Pro choice groups oppose waiting periods for abortions.

She's a mealy-mouthed one, isn't she? If she was clever, she might be able to twist her way out if these little embarrassments she makes for herself. However, she ain't clever. Lol.

That's not what anyone is saying, and if you'd actually tried to learn something about those times, you'd know this already.

I'll try to dumb it down for you.

These women went in SECRET to have illegal abortions. Sometimes it was a doctor, sometimes it was not.

Since it was secret, many families had NO IDEA the abortion had occurred. So, when something went wrong, the woman would have gone to a different doctor, likely in the ER, to be treated. NOT the one who performed the abortion. Where on earth did you get the idea she would go back to the same one?

THAT doctor, knowing she'd had an illegal abortion, and wanting to spare the family, may have hidden certain things, and not reported them. After all, how would he know WHO to report in the first place? Given the stigma attached, and not knowing who the criminal was, WHY tell the family anything that would cause them even MORE grief?

I don't know if you're capable of understanding this, you seem to dim, but there it is; dumbed down as much as possible.

Yes, because she is an adult, correct? So you don't interfere, right? And if she left your religion for another, that would also not be your "job" to dictate, right? Just as it was not my mother's job to dictate my own religion to me, right?

Mom and Dad are probably fine. Grandma's become terribly befuddled but they all love her and take turns making sure she doesn't wander off.
