You really are a limited thinker. That's not at all the point of what he said.

You may believe that, but I do not. The bible is merely a book penned and edited by mortal men, and we all know how inaccurate humans can be when retelling stories. And one thing we do know is that people came up with fantastical stories to explain what was once the unexplainable.

At one time your religion believed/taught the Sun, stars and planets all revolved around the Earth and it was heretical thinking to say otherwise, and we all know how that turned out. And that is the religion we are supposed to take as the explanation of anything?

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.

gladly. if you are going to classify something as self defense you better damn well be sure that it meets the criteria. in this case it does not. pregnancy, while no doubt physically taxing to the mother, can hardly be classified as a condition reasonably assumed to cause imminent death or great bodily harm. if in fact a pregnancy is determined by a licensed physician to be an imminent threat to the mother's life then a case could be made for self defense and the use of deadly force (abortion) would be warranted. however. In the case of a normal pregnancy the criteria necessary for a claim of self defense and the justifiable use of deadly force are simply not met.
that was easy. do you have anything more challenging?

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?

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.

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.

We aren't predestined to do greatness or find cures for Cancer and Aids or to balance a budget.

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?
