What is this? It's some dumbed down list where everything was allegedly fulfilled but not at all explained. Foo actually showed each requirement according to scripture and illustrated in some detail how it was not fulfilled.
If I were moderating a debate and asking to be convinced one way or the other Foo would win by a 100 miles.
This explains it for you

Nice assumption on your part. How do you know he even existed, nevermind where he was?

As right as you are about this Sue, and you ARE right - making abortion illegal again will certainly create MORE Gosnell's as not only the poor, the uneducated, the illegal aliens, the desperate seek out abortions illegally, but other women do as well.
While we only know of a very few Gosnell's today, because it IS safe, legal and accessable, I personally fear we'd be creating an atmosphere where these guys will flourish.
Again, education is the key, not making more laws.
"While we only know of a very few Gosnell's today,"

I think that the important word here is "know", how many don't we know about?

Do you think quacks like this would multiply without any legal regulations in place? I sure do. And that's no good for anyone.
It seems you want to blame legal abortion for these quacks when you say, "It appears that making abortion legal hasn't stopped the back-alley butchers, it just allows them to operate in the main stream." I just don't see it that way.
Look, I am not arguing or debating what you're saying. I disagree with your perspective that legal abortion is at fault for crappy clinics such as Gosnell's and the other two you mentioned. Those incidences are not the norm when abortion is legal and monitored.
However, the attacks on legal, monitored abortion don't help the situation, either. The one gal quoted earlier, the protesters at PP scared her off. The undue restrictions and waiting periods are scaring people off. But it's not preventing them from obtaining abortions.
Does PA want to join in the race to see which state will be first to get an abortion case into the Supreme Court to challenge Roe?
"Those incidences are not the norm when abortion is legal and monitored."

The problem is that they aren't monitored.

"Does PA want to join in the race to see which state will be first to get an abortion case into the Supreme Court to challenge Roe?"

The pro"choice" govenor and The National Abortion Federation didn't want him to get caught and/or shut down.

Exactly. That's what I've been saying as well. Where were all the right to life groups? To heck with "all", where were ANY of them in the 17 years he was doing abortions?
Oh yeah, not a white enough neighborhood.
Like I said, there's enough blame to go around.
"Oh yeah, not a white enough neighborhood."

Maybe this was the reason that the pro"choicers" didn't shut his doors?

No, you found several sites that say the exact same thing, and you left out what Gehenna is, and you cherry picked the part that suits you like you always do.

http://judaism.about.com/od/judaismbasics/a/G...

When the ancient rabbis talk about Gehenna, the question they are trying to answer is "How will bad people be dealt with in the afterlife?" Accordingly, they saw Gehenna as a place of punishment for those who lead an immoral life. However, the time a person's soul could spend in Gehenna was limited to twelve months and the rabbis maintained that even at the very Gates of Gehenna a person could repent and avoid punishment (Erubin 19a). After being punished in Gehenna a soul was considered pure enough to enter Gan Eden (see below). You can learn more about Gehenna in: "What Is Gehenna?

Listen, you are the one who said Christ didn't exist. On that premise there is nothing to discuss.
Thousands of theologians and people that discuss religious views daily say you're wrong.

Why are you afraid to simply admit you dont know shit about your own faith, so that you can't discuss the topic?
I and 2 billion other Christians don't have to prove anything to you.
Those that want to witness certainly do.

Because pro-life groups couldn't be bothered with him either? No, I doubt it.

You're very determined to place blame on ONE group, when the FACT is there's more than enough blame to go around Sue.

"RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-
For the first time ever the state is involved in inspecting abortion clinics before issuing a license for them to operate."

Posted: Sep 12, 2012 10:27 PM EDT Updated: Sep 17, 2012 11:18 PM EDT

For the first time ever??????

http://www.nbc12.com/story/19530189/virginia-...

"An increased scrutiny of Illinois abortion clinics in the wake of revelations about a "house of horrors" in Philadelphia revealed that some facilities had gone up to 15 years without inspections, and two now have closed after regulators found health and safety violations."

"While Illinois is working on the backlog of neglected inspections, the documents reviewed by the AP show that a few abortion clinics in the state still haven't been checked in more than a decade. One in Chicago hasn't been inspected in 16 years. Another in the suburb of Wood Dale was last inspected nearly 15 years ago."

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20120121/n...

It looks like PA wasn't the only state that allowed abortion "clinics" to operate unchecked.

I didn't leave it out I posted the link to the whole site.

Here's another which said some souls stay in "hell" [my word]

Judaism’s view of hell more closely resembles purgatory. However, the pain the soul experiences is not physical. It has been compared to psychological anguish, shame and healing upon reviewing the history of one’s life in a body, and how it wasted opportunities to serve God. This may explain why people who have near death experience often claim their entire life flashed in front of them.

This self-inflicted chastisement cleanses and refines the soul of blemishes that interfered with the soul’s perception of God. The concept of refinement is found in the prophets,“I (God) will refine them as silver is refined”(Zechariah 13:9).

Everyone can merit a portion in the World to Come. However, the completely evil (like Hitler) cannot merit this. As it says,“multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt”(Daniel 12:2).

It doesn't matter if you abide by it or not but the concept for Jews is out there.

I know how you feel, what is the point of continuing? I would be more interested in the Messiah that you are waiting for to fullfill the prophecies.
