You pro-choicers really love ignoring the facts. In over 10 states its considered murder to kill a child in utero. In over 30 it's either murder or assault. And in the federal government it is considered murder to kill a child in utero. Just accept the facts. The more you deny them, the more you're making yourself look like an idiot. So yes, it is a double homicide. Look it up.
But in which states does that include abortion?

Why else would you judge me?
Y'all keep saying I'm going to hell.
Y'all keep saying I'm leading others to hell.
Y'all keep picking on ole sto :(
I don't know sto -could it be becouse you are for the killing of innocent babies and call it a womans choice?
could it be you laugh and cut up with folks that drag your God, through the mud, but attack any one person who may say they kinda like their God, and thankful for what He's done?
Regardless of how the message of the cross is preached, it is still truth, and if you don't like how others brag on the God you claim, how about keeping your mouth shut, just like you do when your "friends " tell us just what they think about 'your " God?
Its one thing to keep silent about your God, since many do, but to keep silent, and get loud at others who are not silent? That's a whole new ball game.
Then to add insult to injury, you try and twist Gods Holy Word, to make you feel ok about the death of over 3,500 innocent babies a day.
Where's the equal rights folks about this?
All they care about, is if two gays can marry, and a woman having the right to choose to kill her unborn child.
I think couples should enter into civil unions and leave the word "marriage" with one's faith/church/religion. For legal purposes, everyone should be treated equally. It's fcked up that biolgoical family members can stop a SO from visiting their partner in the hospital, that the gay couple doesn't get the monetary benefits that straight married couples get. How would that affect you if gay couples had the same legal rights that straight married couples do?

You accept exceptions, such as life/health threat to the woman, so by your defintion, you are "for" "woman having the right to choose to kill her unborn child." You have no problem with frozen embryos being dicarded, so again, you are "for" "the right to choose to kill her unborn child".

Now tell me again I'm going to hell. It's all you got.

If you would spend 10% of your time defending helpless babies, as you do grown people, it may shock you at the results.
Or if you took the time to tell people about your Jesus, that you do trying to "educate " and judge those who claim His name, again you may be shocked at the results.
I'll ask you 1 question, and see if you will answer or not.
Who is Jesus Christ to you?
You think posting on topix is "defending helpless babies"? lol

What makes you think I don't tell people everything I know about Christianity? Maybe not you. You've proven yourself, thus far, to be "swine". That can change. Then, I might educate you.

I don't judge anyone. I haven't judged you. I've simply shared my observaions regarding your lying and hypocrisy. Judging would be me talling you you're going to hell or you're Satan's handmaiden, which I have not done. Nor will I. I don't know your heart, as God does. I simply think you have A LOT of work to do. You haven't changed since being saved. You're behavior is no different. What's bad for you, tho, is you think being saved has given you license to be a jackass, cuz you're forgiven everytime you do it. You seem to have forgotten all about the "repenting" part.

It has nothing to do with billing purposes. An induced abortion is a procedure that is done to forcefully kill and expel the fetus, which is totally different that the fetus dying from natural causes.
That's an (your) emotional explanation. It's not the medical definition of abortion which is simply pregnancy ending prior to term.

Gtown wants me to preach hell and damnation. Problem with that is it turns people off. He wants me to tell you Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior -- as if you weren't raised Catholic and/or have never heard of Christianity and have no clue what it espouses. Clearly, he can't accept that the non-Christians on this thread have heard it all and don't subscribe to it. He thinks beating folks over the head with the "one verse revolving Rev." approach will convert you.

And for some reason, he thinks me posting in detail what I have learned from actually studying the Bible is an attack on him. He's scared of knowledge because it highlights his ignorance. Can't act all superior when he doesn't know what the fck he's talking about.

2. premature stoppage of a natural or a pathological process.

----------

artificial abortion induced a.
complete abortion one in which all the products of conception are expelled from the uterus and identified.
habitual abortion spontaneous abortion occurring in three or more successive pregnancies, at about the same level of development.
incomplete abortion that with retention of parts of the products of conception.
induced abortion that brought on intentionally by medication or instrumentation.
inevitable abortion a condition in which vaginal bleeding has been profuse and the cervix has become dilated, and abortion will invariably occur.

septic abortion that associated with serious infection of the uterus leading to generalized infection.

Abortion

Definition of ABORTION

1

: the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus: as

a: spontaneous expulsion of a human fetus during the first 12 weeks of gestation — compare miscarriage

b: induced expulsion of a human fetus

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abo...

Surgical abortion is a procedure that ends a pregnancy by removing the fetus and placenta from the mother's womb (uterus).

Surgical abortion is not the same as miscarriage. Miscarriage is when a pregnancy ends on its own before the 20th week.

No I am not nuts. I am pushing you to admit you were blaming me for something you did. You did not apologize. "Sorry" could mean any damn thing under the sun. Saying you "incorrectly" does not exude an admittance of an error. Be precise. Don't expect me to be easy going with you after you've been such a hardass to me for no reason other than we don't share the hive-mind so important to your existence.

STO certainly HAS spoken of his beliefs here, and has done more than his share of education, and people like me appreciate that its done from a place of understanding that not eveyone shares the same beliefs, and respect FOR those other beliefs.
Something you can't seem to grasp.
I remember talking to you about the sacred name, YHVH. I gave you a link you said you were going to share with your Rabbi.

I'm always interested to hear from you, having studied your faith, Judaism, since Christianity can't be understood without knowledge of the OT.

Gtown's head would explode if he knew the OT had been translated into many many many languages by JC's time. Don't tell him. He thinks the Bible should be read in English as is. No translating and God forbid no comparision to other translations -- like Coptic.(fascinating nuances and levels of understanding one would miss if all they did was read the King James or any other English translation. I guess he thinks French and Spanish speaking folks don't have French and Spanish translations -- lol).

Oh dear. You do have some issues. What we don't share is your self deception. Abortion kills a child and it is morally wrong.You delude yourself that it doesn't and that because it is legal, it is moral.

People can convince themselves of anything and learn to believe it.
