The question that I posed should not be considered meaningless speculation to a logical person. Logic does say that I posed a unanswerable question, yes. Simply because not one of us can answer it. It also logical to assume that we don't know , or will ever know, what may have become in the life of an unborn child. And yet you wish to argue with logic? Really? Is your mind so shut of the possibility of what could have possibly been? If that is indeed the case, then you are obviously lacking of free thinking of any sort. Logically speaking, that is.
I apologize for any inconvenience that I may have caused you and others. A simple reboot should fix you.
Logic actually suggests that you shouldn't be whining that people didn't answer your unanswerable question. Your question was not logical at all. Sorry.

The fact is that it's YOUR mind that is shut to all the possibilities. YOU just want to speculate on the good, and the fact that we pointed out the reverse of your position proves that we do, indeed, see all the possibilities.

Your passive aggressiveness doesn't cause us any inconvenience at all, but don't believe for one moment we don't notice.

Hmm... starting off with an insult shows how classy of an individual you are. It's starting to make me that believer that abortions may actually serve a valuable purpose.
Unfortunately, they seemed to have missed an excellent candidate in yourself, sir.
You've been flinging your own insults, Hypocrite. Grow up, and stop whining when you get your own back.

Proof that people like you don't mind abortion--as long as YOU get to choose who gets aborted.

Possibly, but why always look at the negative side there, "Dad"?(BTW peckerwood, thanks for calling me "son" as I'm old enough to be a grandfather, and soon will be). And of course you would find it meaningless..... as you and several others are clearly for abortion. But no Thomas Edison, no Abraham Lincoln and the list could go on. How would history have been changed if just a handful that have influenced it so greatly, were simply aborted? But alas, this is another rhetorical question. Just like the first one I posted. Because not a single one of you can provide a answer. All that you and many others on here are mentally capable of doing is bash a person offering food for thought. The "thought" process is seemingly foreign to yourself, as well as a few others on here.
But shucks,(old man/woman),I just find it amusing that certain people are so set in there ways... that they simply refuse to even look at it from any other perspective other than black and white.
Have a great and wonderful day.
Hate to break it to you, but you're not first person who has had this "brilliant" aha moment. It's been said a thousand times before.

“...Kepler was helped by a number of Jesuit astronomers, including Father Paul Guldin and Father Zucchi, and by Giovanni Cassini, who studied under Jesuits. Cassini and Jesuit colleagues were eventually able to confirm Kepler’s theory on the Earth having an elliptical orbit….A Catholic priest, Father Nicholas Zucchi, invented the reflecting telescope. Among the many great Catholic clerical astronomers Giuseppe Piazzi discovered the first asteroid, Ceres, in 1801, and established the observatory at Palermo. Piazzi also obtained modern equipment and instruments for it, and converted Palermo from a backwater in poverty-stricken and ignorant Sicily to a great center for astronomy, a position it has maintained ever since, later being involved with the first imaging X-ray astrophysics. Despite being a Catholic priest and indeed a Professor of Dogmatic Theology in Rome, in 1788 Piazzi traveled to England to work with the astronomer Nevil Maskelyne, a Protestant minister, and the famous instrument-maker Ramsden. A little before this a Jesuit mathematician, R. G. Boscovich, had played a key role in charting the way to modern nuclear physics. In the 20th century a Catholic priest and scientist, Fr. Georges Lemaître, discovered the Big Bang.(He was concerned that it not be used as an argument to prove the existence of God, which he held should be a matter of faith.)…”

The Bible describes what did happen when a person like you describe is not aborted. That should answer the question.

Instead of using my post only as a springboard, why don't you answer the question? 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?
Neither.

Answer my question.

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?
"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?"

My mom's friend's daughter was 8 months along, and had to have an abortion. I was shocked and asked what happened. Preelampsia.

I know the daughter was a drug user - meth. I know she was sick for two weeks (including vomiting. don't know if she had the flu or what), and didn't see a doctor. I know her mother has custody of her daughter.

Yeah, for this pregnancy I'd say an abortion at 8 weeks would have been the better choice. Clearly, the woman had no intention of taking care of herself so she would have a healthy pregnancy.

Really? Is that not their cry, just give us alittle more time, and we will prove such and such? Please realize, when I use the word science -I'm speaking of those who try and discredit God. They research and analyze things allright, but they use that which God has created to do their test.
What they study, prod, probe, heat, cool, or whatever they do was either created by a God, or BANG! You decide.
Gods plan will be done regaurdless of what you or I believe or think -what we believe only affects ourselves.
Most people don't want to believe, becouse they don't want their darkness brought to the light.
Then there are those who are "good ", but will never be good enough.
If a person truly wants to know if God is real -they can ask -even if the have No idea what to say, or who to call Him,BUT it requires something that will be extremely hard for you to do, which is put your pride where it belongs.
Well, do you have any proof to support YOUR claims that God exists and created everything?

I don't live in darkness, no matter what you, or anyone, may think.

As much as I believe that there is no God in your world, I believe that there is a God in his. Each of you are right.

So -you're willing to bet your entire eternity on a few verses you think are wrong? A book of books, written over sooo many years, and the nay sayers can only come up with a handful of verses "they say " claim all the bible null and void.
If nothing else, I used to never know, and now I do. Must you fully understand all things about all things, before you "trust? "
If a human doctor told you such and such, and that you would die if you did not do such and such -would you argue with him? Would you trust Him?
What if another doctor told you the same thing, then what? Argue /trust?
Lets just say a Holy God Did send His Only Begotten Son to die for YOU.
It's not just a few verses. It's the very essence of how the Universe works and the Church was wrong wrong wrong.

When a doctor gives me advice I usually trust him/her because they are highly educated in the field of medicine, but these days we can also do research on our own, too.

Cut the bullshit, Ink. The church taught that everything revolved around the Earth including the Sun, and they were wrong, and when Galileo said they were wrong he was arrested and forced to recant the truth.

And as a matter of fact the Sun, and us along with it, orbits the center of the Galaxy. The Sun is a middle-aged medium sized star and when it dies the Earth dies with it.

Quite a bit moron, something you'd know if you knew anything about science OR the bible.

The sun does NOT revolve around the earth for one, which the bible states MANY times.

The bat isn't a bird for another. The bible famously claimed the world was flat and has four edges.

Want more?

Anyone with a modicum of sense and intelligence doesn't need science to tell them that the earth wasn't created in 7 days.

Only idiots read the bible and take it literally.
