One of the US’s most prominent Evangelical writers and conservative speakers has compromised on his pro-life position in the face of the election of Barack Obama to the presidency and has said that abortion should remain legal.

Abortion is legalized murder. How many scientist have been killed? How many doctors have been killed? How many great singers and how many people have been killed who would have made a great difference in all our lives? Some of these babies would have brought great joy to others around them. Some others would have made all the difference in the world to those around them? How many inventors? How many authors? How many teachers? How many problem-solvers? One thing is for certain, all had a right to keep living!

How many Hitlers? How many Pol Pots? How many Charles Mansons?

What a tired old argument, seriously.

And NO, they did not ALL have a right to keep living.

...sigh...

I like this guy Schaeffer. He's a realist. He's sensible enough to see that the BEST way to reduce abortion rates is not to render it illegal, but to reduce the incidence of unwanted pregnancies: PREVENTION.

It is a FAR more realistic and feasible approach. One that PC and PL can join together on and face a common goal: the elimination of abortion as much as possible.

Abortion would be easy to stop.......if money were to vanish off the face off the earth! Simple, no money, no abortions. "In god we Trust", just does not seem right. Money and greed equals the root of all evil!There is nothing worse than humans addicted to money, pure evil.

The rights in this country are not given by G-d, dear.

If you want that, then please move to a theocracy like Iran or Afghanistan.

You'd fit *right* in.

I am 100% sure that no z/e/f aborted was, at the time of abortion, a scientist, doctor, great singer, inventors, author, teacher, or problem-solver.

How typically "pro-life" of you. No wonder you fundys have no credibility.
