That is hardly self-defense. One's life would have to be in danger to use that term.
Some people have benign cancerous cells coursing through their bodies. It's not going to kill them. It is medical self-defense to remove those cancerous cells.

Some women think of pregnancy as a cancer. You may not agree with these women; they do not have to agree with you.

One individual pregnant woman at a time determines her own pregnancy without outside interference from the law, the clergy, or nosy parkers.

Least you forget, more women opt to remain pregnant. That should please you.

Yes, we were discussing fetal life. Which is not the same as all life and/or living independently of another's bodily functions.

Yep that's the Pope's master plan. Make a statement about not judging homosexuals and watch them come storming back to the church and start pouring money hand over fist into the church's bank account.

The reality is he risks LOSING more money from the religious far right who perceive this as pandering, than he'd ever hope to see from militant homosexuals who might ever come back because of this.

You're pathetically dumb.

This Pope emphasizes good works rather than confession as an entry into heaven.
While nobody can say that I overlook expediency as a guiding principal of the Catholic church, I can't attribute these statements to expediency.

The comment was about whether or not the fetus was alive. I don't think that is up for discussion. It is a fact that the fetus is living.

Yes, it is alive and it is living.

But it is suspended animation. There are other definitions to the words alive and living. Definitions describing actions. Fetal life has no active participation in its development or surroundings.

That's a distinction you don't or won't see because you choose to personify the fetus; in your mind fetal life has the equivalence of a newborn.

Disagree. Self defense,is,defense of your life ..if a,pregnant woman is
In danger of losing her life. Life saving procedues,may be needed for sure..early delivery to save her life..removsl of an already dead baby..removal of an ovary ir tube in an ectopic pregnancy...and woukd be self defense...all woukd most likely be carried out in a hospital and not an abortion clinic.
Killing the unbirn healthy offspring inside ofo
a healthy woman is not self defense, its a,purely ekective abortion
The baby in that case,is not killing her ..

Disagree. They would use condoms ..probably doubled or get sterilized after their first labor ...or become gay or find a woman eho did not care for conventional sex.

No abortion necessary ...its medical..might hurt ..they would avoid that too..no overpopulation...

Sounds,like a,plan to me ..

I dont find what he said at all odx.

What I find strange is three or so weejs ago I commented that gay people go to Catholic Church ..here at least..and I was
called hateful and anti Catholic for saying that by one of your Catholic posters.

So am I to assume there ard gay priests but NO CATHOLIC parishioners.

That is very odd indeed..

Hi Rose.

If a pregnancy becomes life threatening then don't you think it would have been better to abort the pregnancy sooner rather than later?

<quoted text>You have that wrong, no one gets to heaven doing just *good works* You have to have faith and grace to do those good works the Pope emphisized that, the press decided not to include that. Another thing Confession is a Sacrament which is extremely important to get to Heaven, Christ forgives if we forgive our tresspassers , forgiveness is extremely important to get to heaven, we all must forgive to get to heaven.

Hi STO
Well the assumption would be ..if it was ectopic ..would be very early

In the other cases..probably later ..and probably wanted children.

Some life threatening thjngs,dobt show uo until later ..why sbirt a child just in case,you MIGHT have a problem

I add these,things to make no bones about the idea that I am soeaking of letting a mom die just because she is,pregnant .

When I USE THE TERM ELECTIVE ABORTION i like to mske it ckear ..no semantics..

Emergencies hapoen ..usually if possible docs try to save both..sometimes unsuccessfully.

Requesting and going in voluntarily ..no medical problem ..for the sole purpose of ending the life of ones own offspring is not self defense,
