In other words, WHO GIVES A SHIT what the Bible says?
Certainly not the Constitution. The Bible isn't even mentioned in the document which sets forth parameters for United States law.
Get over your theocracy fantasies already, Dink.
Tell Cpeter, he brought it up as a reason for abortion.

I won't allow you to hijack a Latin medical term describing a particular stage of a human being's life and use it perversely as an excuse to intentionally KILL human beings in the womb.
How you gonna stop me?

I don't subscribe to your characterization of the exercise of my rights to personal risk assessment, self-defense, and medical/bodily autonomy, as 'perverse','an excuse', or having to do with 'human beings in the womb'.

If you don't like abortion, the law ALLOWS you to decline ever contemplating, seeking, or having one.

If I had concerns I would more likely research Wicca and get to know the parents.

You tell him - you're the one trying to argue that the Bible views abortion in a negative light.

The fact is, the only mention of abortion in the Bible is a command to perform one.

Unfortunately, bible-humpers prefer to 'interpret' scriptures in this particular case, rather than take them literally as usual. Fits the script better that way.

Logical thinking isn't a strong suit among those who rely on knee-jerk reactions to stimuli.

It's far more demanding of the little grey cells, to consider actually getting to know someone of a different belief system, than it is to say to one's children, "Ugh, Wiccans bad, you stay home."

Then they can utilize what passes for their intellects, in pursuit of information conforming to their already pinpoint-sized world views....

VATICAN CRIMES

"40% of catholic Nuns have been abused..."

"“A large part of the history of [Ed.: mandatory] celibacy is the story of the degradation of women and – an invariable consequence – frequent abortions and infanticide."

“According to the 1996 survey of nuns in the United States (which was intentionally never published by the [Ed.: Roman Catholic] Church but was leaked by some Vatican insider), it is reported that a minimum of 34,000 Catholic nuns (about 40% of all American nuns) claim to have been sexually abused. Three of every four of these nuns claimed they were sexually victimized by a priest, nun, or other religious person. Two out of five nuns who stated they were sexually abused claimed that their exploitation included some form of genital contact. All nuns who claimed repeated sexual exploitation reported that they were pressured by religious superiors for sexual favors.”–“Boston Globe”(1-8-2002)[Ed.: This quote is on p. 179 of the book,“Lucifer’s Lodge”, by William H. Kennedy.]

“The media black-out of the sexual abuse of women by clerics in both ritual and non-ritual cases is a great disgrace."

I didn't bring up the bible. I was only responding to his non fact based comment.

BTW where does the bible command an abortion be performed.

Maybe it would make them more comfortable to arrange playdates with Catholic priests. Those men are fellow Christians and so they're 100% decent people.

I didn't say it did; I said that the belief of christians for centuries. The bible doesn't allude to life beginning at conception, either. It mostly refers to the soul as existing
before even the pregnancy.
It does, however describe your god as ordering the israelites to rip open the pregnant women of their enemies, so I'm guessing the big guy's not all that opposed to abortion.

You're aware of what causes pregnancy, right?
You're narrow minded and downright boring.
The fact remains that consent to sex does not equal consent to have and carry a child. Cry on, nancyboy.
