Matt 25: 41-46
Everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. That would be hell.
The original and current meaning of Hel had nothing to do with devils or everlasting fire. Too bad you don't even know the history of the word or idea. Hel is a place of COLDNESS and stillness. You can have your everlasting fire; just don't call it hell, because hell is never mentioned in your bible and it's meaning has nothing to do with your religion.

How can someone be charged with assulting what doesn't exist?
By insisting that lawmakers use incorrect terms, and that the fetus be considered a "victim" for the purpose of such a law. That was YOUR side, not ours. We're not responsible, yet you are unreasonably holding us responsible. It's dishonest, but then you're not known for your intellectual honesty.

The only difference between a spontaneous abortion and an induced abortion is that with the former, the woman's body makes that decision, and with the latter, her mind makes that decision.

Then he should have been charged with the assult of a fetus, and it should be a lesser crime because there was no child involved. If it isn't a crime for a woman, or abortionist, to assult a fetus then it shouldn't be a crime for anyone else.I
This is complete nonsense of cource, since its a medical decision for a woman to make. When she is attacked and her pregnancy harmed, the decision is being taken from her without her permission.

I was about to disagree myself but failed to consider this.....what about the very real possible scenario of a woman who finds out she is pregnant at 10 weeks but does not want to gestate herself nor does she agree to using an artificial womb ? She basically does not want any offspring of hers in existence whether naturally or artificially gestated. In that sense abortion would still very much be an issue.
I understand that, but unless I'm mistaken, the discussion had been about STO's "artificial womb" hypothetical, in the future, where a fetus at 8 weeks could be "viable", according to his thinking.

He stated "viability" could become "pracically limitless", to which you replied that in that case, so could abortion.

How could "viability" be practically limitless,(keep in mind he used the point of 8 weeks), if he was talking about women becoming pregnant naturally, without artificial wombs? If viability would be practicially limitless due to artificial wombs, then abortion would be a non-issue in such cases, and is why I disagreed with her having a point about that. If a woman would be using asn artificial womb, she wouldn't be wanting to abort her developing child.

My understanding was that the dicussion based on STO's hypothetical was only about artificial wombs and the possibilities [they] allow about viability. That it was not a discussion that included natural pregnancies; viability in that regard, or abortion in that regard.

Correction to Doc:*He stated "viability" could become "pracically limitless", to which you replied something to the effect that abortion could become a non-issue.*

Sorry, haven't been around in awhile and haven't taken the time to look back to see what exactly was said.

Not at all. An abortion is a process of which a pregnancy is terminated regardless of it being natural or deliberate. If you have had a miscarriage you had an abortion.

An abortion bymedical terms only. Have you ever had a miscarriage? Its devistating to the parents. Elective abortion is the intentional killing of the unborn.

She's aborting her pregnancy. Abortion is defined medically as pregnancy ending prior to term. The embryo or fetus may already be dead or it may die as a result of it. When the majority of abortions take place, the embryo is roughly the size of a Tic Tac.

It doesn't matter if grandma died naturally from a heart attack, or from you blowing her head off with a shot gun. She died either way.

If a woman WANTS pregnancy and children, obviously not. Pregnancy IS a punishment for any woman who DOESN'T want pregnancy or children.
That's why women use contraceptives, "genius," to AVOID the unwanted outcome of pregnancy to the best of their ability. Militant religionist imbeciles like yourself don't seem to like the idea of women using contraception to avoid unwanted pregnancy either. Too bad for you. Motherhood is still OPTIONAL, not required, which means women can reject it for any reason.
Ocean: "Pregnancy IS a punishment for any woman who DOESN'T want pregnancy or children."

Pregnancy isn't a punishment.

Everyone knows that pregnancy is the result of engaging in sex. Over half of those who get an abortion were using contraception at time of pregnancy.

Surely you know what causes pregnancy, Ocean.

Why do you act so suprised that pregnancy results from sex? Are you an imbecile?

It makes no difference if I have miscarried or not. The process is the same. The word or the definition isn't any different, that's the point. The point isn't the effects of abortion natural or induced.

I wasn't discussing "most prolifers". I was discussing the premise of the entire PLM (being as I just read and linked the history of it for Ink recently).
I disagree, though. I do not believe there can be equal rights between woman and fetus. Woman's rights trump fetus' since it is unformed, unkown, and unknowing. That doesn't necessarily equate to disrespecting or not protecting it, imo.
Klueless Katiekins: "Woman's rights trump fetus' since it is unformed, unkown, and unknowing."

You're peri-menopausal and "unforming" as we type.

I'm sure many in your life wish they could "unknow" you.

You are not above those human beigns in the womb. THEY aren't trying to kill other innocent human beings. YOU are.

The book isn't called "Romans" for no reason.

Those passages you mentioned are not talking about hell.

It's that simple. I don't know why you'd think they are.

Previously, you stated people are saved by faith OR works. Works would be of their choosing, would they not?

I've read the whole book. I've read the entire Bible. You have to keep a passage in context to its chapter and each chapter in context to its book.

And it wouldn't kill you to use a Strong's.
