this is a chemical reaction that causes the female to spontaneouly abort. she does not consciously trigger the chemical reaction.
Prove it.

Scientific research says she does.

Again, you'd rather an innocent child be born into a life of misery, neglect, exploitation, resentment, and abuse, than not be born at all. And yet you go around calling yourself 'pro-life'. You're pro-birth, and you're boring as hell.

Shove it up your flatulent ass, fetus worshiper. You'd rather women risk life and health against their will, if they have consensual sex, than be able to make our own medical choices. All a baby is to you, is 'the consequences of HER actions'.

Alright, remember people, there's no such thing as proof in science, so to ask for it would be pointless.

A pretty piss poor way to set up anything. With out the originals one is left with suspect, at best, subject matter.
If you believe your god set it up that way. Then your god has some real clerical and secretarial troubles. He should have hired some one that knew how to keep better records. Just saying...
Well again we are talking about God, so regardless of how you, I,or anyone "thinks" He should do things is irrelevant. Plus do you not "think" that a God that created all things can manage those things the way He sees fit? Just saying

As I said you can believe that if it makes you happy. Animals do not deliberately abort. That would be next to impossible to document since you can't read the mind or ask the animal.

You make many assumptions. Where have I said you were wrong? I only replied that you can research it yourself. Perhaps pose your questions to a qualified professional if you truly seek an answer or response. Just keep an open mind and put your beliefs aside when trying to learn.

There is no original manuscript out there.
That's how God set it up, and has no problem preserving His Word, or His Words :)
Get back to us when you can provide evidence that your favorite story book is "the word of god".

Until then, all you have is wishful speculation, at best.

Of course they do.
The trend of aborting babies in the face of strange males is known as the Bruce effect. That’s not a slight against men of that name; the effect is named after the scientist who discovered it – Hilda Margaret Bruce. In 1959, she noticed that pregnant mice will abort if they’re exposed to unfamiliar males. Since then, scientists have found the same effect among other laboratory rodents, and domestic horses. But the Bruce effect has always remained a quirk of captivity. No one really knew if wild animals do the same thing.
A new study found that geladas, a relative of the baboon, do have abortions in the wild:
Normally, the failure rate for gelada pregnancies is around 2 per cent. If a new male arrives, it shoots up to 80 per cent.… But why would a pregnant female abort her own foetus? Roberts thinks that it’s an adaptive tactic in the face of a new male’s murderous tendencies. Since the male would probably kill the newborn baby anyway, it’s less costly for the female to abort than to waste time and energy on bringing a doomed infant to term. Her future offspring, conceived more quickly and fathered by the incumbent king of the hill, will stand a better chance of survival.
Is Abortion Natural?
All signs point to yes; aborting a pregnancy is a natural response in female mammals.
Ludek Bartos from the Institute of Animal Science in the Czech Republic recently led a study that suggests that female horses have adopted abortion strategies and that they can choose to terminate a pregnancy if they are put in a position where the foals paternity may be uncertain. Published in the journal Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology, this study has caused many anti-choicers to exclaim that the creators of this study are simply assuming the horses intentions. They argue that the phenomena should be referred to as “miscarriage” instead of “abortion.” Some have even proclaimed that it’s impossible for animals to choose to terminate pregnancies, because they don’t have the medical technology to perform surgical abortions.
What these critics fail to acknowledge is that abortion does not have to be performed surgically. In animals, hippos, armadillos and rabbits have all been known to suddenly miscarry when their environmental conditions are unfavorable, or because they are such that giving birth would potentially kill them. The reason that scientists choose to call this a self-induced abortion instead of a miscarriage is because the pregnancies are typically lost before the mother animal begins to feel negative effects from the strain of carrying a pregnancy in a hostile environment.
BAM.
Stress can cause miscarriages in both man and animals. Intentional abortion would take mind reading skills. Fertility rates are very low in captive animals. If you think about this rationally, how would you ever know what an animal is thinking?

Poor you.. You really do not get it that when you literally believe. It is an abuse and a deplorable use of faith.
I can only hope that one day you realize that Faith is stronger when you are more willing to see any collection of books as a metaphor. Not as some literal truth. That you still interpret when ever it suits your agenda. though i find in general that those who take their own books of faith to be the literal word of their god. Turn out to be hypocrites. Like you.
I do understand that emphatically disagree. I do understand that you believe that your "literal truth" is the only way you want to look at the world. I get it that the idea gives a sense of permanence in a world that has none. The reality is that you make yourself in to a hypocrite even as you defend your cherished belief.

Worse ink it puts you into an indefensible position. One that further boxes you in to a theological corner. Causes you then still need to interpret something in your collection of books.
And that Ink is why tragedies like this little girl happens. Why the terrorists in the middle east murder and kill themselves. Why Ink people do fire bomb clinics, murder doctors in a christian church, and in general terrorize clinic workers and their patients.
Ink that is not an opinion. It is a fact that we all can see on any day. Believing in your collection of books as a literal truth is an abuse of Faith.
Boy are you way off.

Your gospel were written 35 to 50 years after the fact. What you have is copies of copies.. there is no telling what the original might have said. There is no telling just what was dropped or added with out the originals. It is a ridiculous idea to have a literal belief in a collection if books when all you are working is copy of copies. With no reference as to what the originals really looked like.
So you are right the whole thing hearsay with out a doubt. Makes less sense to literally believe in any of it.. Just saying..
At least one gospel was written by men who knew Jesus.

All of the gospels, those in the canon and those that aren't tell the same story about Jesus. Granted they are written by men with different biases and views and even at that, they are remarkably similar. Enough so that most historians admit that they was a man who in the first century who had an amazing effect on the world and still does.

Stories told by your mother about her grandfather are hearsay but probably true.
