Terminology is all they have to fight over because in their hearts they know it is somebody's child/baby waiting to be born. Already a family member, a sister, brother, son, or daughter. Most times already loved and eagerly anticipated. There is no difference between a wanted chld and an unwanted child except that the unloving mother will have it killed before birth.
"There is no difference between a wanted chld and an unwanted child except that the unloving mother will have it killed before birth."

Why would you assume/presume such a thing? Do you believe God to be unloving when spontaneous abortion occurs? Of course not. So *why* would you believe a woman facing unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy is unloving if she chooses to abort that pregnancy?

Why would they regret the pregnancy? The fetus is the one with the regrets for being conceived by a mother who thinks only of herself and not her child. She has every right to keep her knees together before ever getting pregnant. Her rights should end when those rights concern another living, breathing person inside her. You liberal phonies are all the same. Proclaim your hate for war and the killing of "innocent" life but don't blink an eye for the millions upon millions of lives snuffed out by ones own mother.

That was an interesting reply "Ink."
It was direct, honest, and revelatory.
Thank you.
The generally accepted perception of you has been of someone who takes every word of the New Testament as pure, unadulterated Truth, but does not feel the same way about the Old Testament.
This has, unsurprisingly, created an impression of someone who wants to "cherry-pick" what they choose to believe as inarguable "Truth," especially when it comes down to the moral decisions regarding the subject of abortion.
I also happen to think the "lost" Gospels are fascinating.
I especially like comparing the "Gospel according to Judas" with the Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis's novel, "The Last Temptation of Christ."
Since the book was written not too long after that "Gospel" was discovered, I can't help but wonder just how much that remnant of the Dead Sea Scrolls influenced the writer's "vision."
Have you read any of Elaine Pagels works?
Her books, "The Gnostic Gospels," "The Origin of Satan," and "Revelation," are quite informative--and good reads to boot!
To touch on abortion only briefly, I have said that I believe the Ten Commandments were God given and are still relevant if you are a believer. The 'thou shalt not murder or kill unjustly' for me, covers abortion since an unborn child is refered to as a child in all the old writings and my understanding is that God knows us before birth. Even science says that at conception a whole new unique individual is formed. I know abortion is legal and that women have a choice. I also understand that my impression of God and the Bible can be quite different from someone looking to justify abortion.

I haven't read the books you mentioned but i am reading "Jesus, an historian's review of the gospels" by Michael Grant. He goes into detail about what is most likely factual and what might be factual but colored to suit the writer's point of view or audience.

I need to check more into the Judas Gospel but I understand the drift. I think the gospel of Peter is insightful and I can understand why it wasn't included in the Canon.

Gtown, what do you think of the obscenity that has become Christmas? A friend of mine says we should just call it "Retail Day". Cancel all other holidays, just celebrate "Retail Day", and the whole year can be dedicated to Retail Day shopping.
Even as an atheist I'm horrified at the complete bastardization of a holiday that at the very least is a good day of rest and relaxation with friends and family.
I am so disgusted at this new practice of opening stores on Thanksgiving evening.

Since you brought God into this and I don't know why. I will say that God takes care of his children and brings them home when He wants to. Women just kill.

What is the difference between God's spontaneous abortion and pregnant woman's induced abortion? You can't say one is loving and the other unloving.

So what is it?

I agree that religion can do that to folks, but God and religion are two different things.
God forgives your past, present, and future Sin.
God just forgives period!:)
Forgiveness is great, but having a personal relationship with God, is what most lack.
Those who know God, and have been saved by His grace WILL still sin, even though they don't look at sin the way they once did, and they WILL pay the consequences for those sins here on earth.
Those who don't know God, and are not saved may get away with lots of sins here on earth, but they will pay for their Sin if they die lost.
sin (small s) effects us all
Sin (big S) only effects those who know not God.
There will be two judgements.
Judgement seat of Christ, is where all the saved goes, before they enter heaven. There works as a christian are judged, which some works will stand, and some will burn up, since many do stuff that's of their own flesh, not what God wanted. These folks will not have their SIN (Big S) judged. That has already been settled.
White throne judgment, is where all the lost and damned will go, to have their SIN judged, since it was not settled before hand.
Look at it this way. You or I am wrong.
What if I'm wrong?
What if you're wrong?
If your bio is true, you found God while having sex.

Oh, by the way, cows breathe, too.

Don't like abortion? Don't have one.

Pretty simple, really.

I guess your god is evil for killing 1 in 5 pregnancies before they come to term.
Let us know when you're cabable of making a rational argument.
Here's poo poo head doing his "spiders, cockroaches, etc are equivalent to humans" shtick. It never gets old !!!

God set nature into motion and allows it's laws, which include the body naturally rejecting a faulty or abnormal pregnancy, to proceed without interference.
