Why are all of you linking abortion to religion? Abortion isn't a religious issue. My religion has nothing to do with my pro-life stance. I just can't believe the fact that we as a country allow someone to just walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic and have an abortion, no questions asked. I'm not saying that all people do that, I'm saying that our country allows that and it's hard to imagine anyone to justify that.
It's called living in a free country where mom has constitutional rights and fetus does not non further justification required.

<quoted text>Great post!!!
The longer people are in the dark, the more they get used to it, and things like abortion, where about 3000 women a day walk into a clinic, quitly have the deed done, as if it was getting nails done?!?!!?

The pro choicers range, but most on here are straight up gangsta about it.
They see NO problem with it, or the number at all!

Plus they see No problem with how our country, became such a baby killing machine.
Did the people get to (CHOOSE?) NO.
only a few people, who were already, ready for the darkness of it all.

Before I was saved, I was for abortion, but had no clue why, and truly had no clue how many were being aborted.
What kills me, is that most of these people would seek (blood justice), if they seen 1 (not millions), just 1 baby whale being ripped out of its mother.
You made a great point, and very simple. I can learn. Lol

When people (pro choice) or not, have No problem with around 3000 babies a day, having their heart beat stopped, then something is bad wrong
See that's yours and your ilk's ignorance and purblindedness. As for me, while abortion is, hands down killing, and as such, tragic, I'd rather a woman kill her unborn and America remaining a free country, than have fascism and religious intolerance rule the country I help defend, and have woman, and men, be deprived of their constitutionally protected rights, by fanatic extremists who think their view of any issue, specifically aborrion, is the only view.

We know what happen to Nazi Germany; we know what happen to the Soviet Union; we know what happens to women, and the men who defend them in Muslim countries to name a few.

I don't know about you, but if having 3,000 women a day terminating their pregnancy is a grain of sand of an influence in keeping our country free, being it on. Xtians believe the clean soul will not go to hell. We Jews believe the soul enters at birth. So, from a religious stance, abortion has no downside with regard to the unborn's afterlife.

Now watch the religious talibangelists like sassy, no relevance, dum dumb to also name a few, have a field day twisting my post.

<quoted text>You really hated your time as a Christian. Most of you proabortion pagans were Chritians that just hated all thouse rules aobut self-control and accepting God. Now you are damaged souls. You can only function when you are the center of your own little universe. All your 'faiths' seem to be about is attacking Chrsitians. Sad life for you.
Judaism has far more "rules" than Christianity dumbass. A minimum of 613 commandments, especially for Hasidic and Orthodox Jews.

Everyone is a damaged soul, including you pinhead. Don't you go thinking you're free from sin and take up the "hollier than thou" attitude, and remember your Jeebus parable of the Pharisee and the publican. Luke 18:9-14.

Now, shut your pie hole, you f*cking hypocrite.

For the "christian" extremists who think that girls and women were well treated in past American history, I think it's time for a little reminder of some facts you probably don't want to see mentioned on a public forum. Too bad. The fact is, we had an American version of Sharia Law in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century in America --

-- Girls got much less education than boys did.

-- Girls' activities, especially for middle- and upper-class girls, were limited to "ladylike" pursuits.

-- Girls and women were considered naturally weaker and inferior to boys and men.

-- It was thought shocking, outrageous, and even scandalous for a woman to give a speech in public, especially to audiences of both men and women.

-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to confine their activities to a "separate sphere" or their homes. Women were also expected to show the "virtues" of religious piety, wifely submission, and motherly domesticity. And they always had to be escorted outside their homes by a man.

-- Married women had NO legal rights, including to own property, keep their inherited money, enter into contracts, sign legal documents, or control what happened to their wages or their children.

-- Women who were single or had to earn money had very few job opportunities and were always paid less than men who did the same job.

-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to wear layers of restrictive and heavy clothing, and corsets that were so tight that many women suffered health problems as a result.

-- Almost a million African women were chattel slaves.

-- Women were not allowed to vote.

-- Married women had no choices over their reproductive process. Any woman who got married was expected to produce children, whether she WANTED to be a mother or not.

In addition to the above, as if that weren't oppressive enough, conservative men of the 19th and early 20th century opposed every measure that improved women's lives, especially a woman's right to vote. THAT'S what the 19th century feminists fought so hard to change, and eventually succeeded in doing so, even though it took 72 years, from 1848 to 1920, to achieve that goal. The shame was that it took that long for women to GET that right to vote in the first place.

Outstanding post, CD! And you're right, the talibangelist nutcases will have a field day (or several) twisting this post and telling outright LIES about you personally.

Even with all that, I still think it's important to challenge the religionist IDIOCY that these kooks want everyone to believe is "fact." As you said, "bring it on." :-)

Women were expected to get married and raise a family. That is what women had done for thousands of years before the Catholic Church had come into existance. The early Church leaders/popes didn't want to include women as clergy because they felt it would take them away from what they were naturally expected to do in life, which was to raise a family.
Also, during the early stages of Christianity, the faith was spread primarily by missionaries who traveled all over the pagan world -- by themselves. How could you expect a woman to go out into the world, by herself, and not get raped whereever she went? Women would have needed an escort whereever they went and this would have been costly to the Church.
And if the Church was to allow women to be in the clergy, what do you do when her biological clock starts ticking? Do you allow her to raise a family and still try to do all the tasks that a pastor is required to do? What if a child is sick on a Sunday morning, does the priestess stay home with her child or does she go to say Mass?
I believe the Church was wise to exclude women for their own protection and to avoid conflicts of interest.
You prove my point. "Women were expected" to fulfill a "role" as directed by "men". They were "governed" without being heard, the men took upon themselves to do so. The corporation known as the CC still today does not allow women in its "governing" as the world expands around them and women are involved in governing their OWN lives no longer directed by men. You can use all the EXCUSES you like but the truth remains women are second class by catholic and religious standards.

First off, abortion is a medical decision made by ONE person about HER body. Abortion is not now and NEVER HAS BEEN murder. You didn't "twist" about that, you just LIED about it flat out.
Again, you didn't "twist" that, you LIED about it.
Nobody "forced murder" on anyone, NOBODY forced abortion on anyone. You dont get to vote on MY right to make my OWN medical decision. Sorry dear, but that's just going to remain forever your tough shit moment. All your religous bullshit wont change that.
