Self-defense is actually irrelevan as you describe it. It's the reasonable FEAR of danger that constitutes self-defense, and the FACT is that any pregnancy can go south at any time. The woman gets to decide what the extent of the risk might be, and whether she will accept the risk.

Oh yeah, that, too!! "...reasonable FEAR of danger that constitutes self-defense..." Full term pregnancies may be problem-free. Delivery is another story altogether.

. LOL not really it doesn't. Nowhere does God discuss "why" he created earth. I'm personally a believer that if he even exists,we're a mote in his eye, and we're likely nothing more than a passing fancy he uses for amusement.
The kind of deity you freaks believe in is quite laughable really.

Theories are not finalized because they are reactive to FACTS. Religion stays the same because you need neither facts nor proof. Dogma is not evidence of anything; every religion has its own, and none agree. A physicist in jerusalem has the same data to reference as one in malibu.

So the theories are true because they keep changing and religion is a lie because it stays the same.

Your argument works if pregnancy is a criminal condition. As you pointed out, it's not. It's a medical condition. We have rights to medical self-defense; the right to refuse treatment, the right to refuse being experimented on, the right to refuse our organs being used against our will, etc.
Which do you find more acceptable? An embryo aborted at the 8th gestational week or a life-threatening viable fetus aborted at 32 weeks gestation?
The problem is that we believe such nonsense.
Doctors are make-believe. God has to help us.
We sense when there is evil.
The hospital can help us deliver our babies.
But if they hurt the babies or the women,
it is wrong. Asking to tie my tubes is an insult.
It is sterilization. Stitching the skin is just dumb.
They are predators.

To paraphrase rhett butler, ink needs to be "victimized" and often, and by someone who knows how!

What if...there was that single abortion that lead to the destruction of the only single person that would've been able lead us as a planet, out of the mess that we're now in. A worthwhile leader, man or woman, who could have took control of the many corrupt and poorly conceived economic developments in our past, that we see before us now in this day and time....

We will never know. Regardless of if you believe if this decision was for the best or not. We shall never know as a collective group of the planet earth, of the many great and creative minds that were possibly lost to us. That's what I personally wonder the most about.

I never stated one single thing about predestination. I simply posed the question of "what if"? You don't know, and neither do I.

Why would you worry about such things outside of your control?

And do you consider what might've been following every spontaneous abortion? Or that about half of all fertilized eggs never implant (honey don't flush, it may contain the next Einstein).

Are you biting your fingernails over that?

What if? What if another Hitler? Stalin? The question is pointless, really.

Here's one more to the point....what if we each mind our own business about something that has nothing to do with us, like other people's medical decisions?

Nay, I do not concern myself with every abortion. Also, I don't worry about things outside of my control. I did indeed use the "wonder" word. Is it really that hard to wrap your mind around the "what if" concept? If perhaps you're dead set that abortions are logical and will never have an open mind on questioning either way, then so be it. Some of us do not consider that as an option.

There will still be a few of us free thinkers that will "wonder" as the law as it is, deprives us of contributions that we would all deem as a collective.... extremely worthy. But as I have said before, we shall never know.

We can only speak for what is, not what might have been.

It is terribly na´ve to believe there is only "one person" who could contribute in that way. You may as well wonder if that "one person" wasn't a fetus that was spontaneously aborted, or died as a child. And the question is moot unless you do "concern" yourself with every abortion, or worry about things outside of your control.

You didn't have to, you implied that some baby, somewhere, at some time had been or will be aborted and may have been gone on to do great things. Go on thinking about it, it's a complete waste of time.

I seem to have posed a question that was unbeknownst to me, was actually going to be argued and questioned repeatedly. I will admit defeat! You're absolutely right. Shut my mind and admit, that no abortion could never ever possibly lead to depriving a life that may have been a contributing member of society.

Meanwhile back at the ranch... Will is getting ready for bed so he's alert enough to go to work. And he's also willing to let you argumentative boobs consider at least this much:

No matter where you go,there you are. But what if... you never were?

Oh No, the "what if" question again? Don't strain, why bother. ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!

Of course your religion claims to know why! They also claim that their god is the one and only. Your religion is just like a good salesperson, except your product is invisible.

All you've got are empty claims with no evidence to back up such arrogant statements.
