Wrong fucwit. Jesus did not forbid judging but only said that the means by which you judge, are the means by which you too will be judged.
Wrong again coward. Stop relying on google.
Stop relying on a 2000 year old book of heresay.

Oh, you mean there's been a CHANGE in a sacrament? Hmmm...I believe I noted that already, and the catholic squad got all huffy.

There wasn't a change in the Holy Sacrament. Again, you know nothing of the Church and Her history.

How are you today, LC?

It's so beautiful today. I'm so glad Fall is here, haven't had that awful humidity. I'm getting too old for heat indexes of over 100, lol. I love anytime I can open up the windows, and let the fresh air in.

Abortion, much like adoption, is totally unnecessary for me. I enjoyed being pregnant, I like being a mother, I wouldn't mind raising another child and because of that, there is no reason for me to choose abortion nor give up a child for adoption.
I truly fail to see what's so hard to understand about that. I've explained my reason, ad nauseum. There's no reason to feel I've been dishonest or elusive when I've stated my reason quite clearly and quite concisely. You're not keen on my answer and that's cool. However, to claim that I did not answer the question, I did not explain myself or was dishonest in my answer is a falsity. I hope you have a good day.
He's also too lazy to go back and see your exhaustive replies to these very questions, M. He prefers to harass you incessantly, and lie about your not being honest.

Lest we forget he is a person who advocates for forcing women/girls to gestate rape-induced pregnancies against their will, even in cases of incest.

Treating women abusively is clearly a common practice for him.

So basically He/She only gets credit for the good things that happen in nature?

He's delusional.

Either everything is of G-d or nothing is of G-d. We don't get to cherry-pick the things we want G-d to be responsible for. That's sheer lunacy.

It's painfully obvious he kept nudging you to admit abortion is evil. Why accept your reasons for being personally against abortion? You've got to be harboring the "right" reasons to reject abortion and if he could just get you to admit it ... well it'd stroke his ego long enough to last a day or so. Y'know?

Am good Bit, you?

Rain here for most of the day. We've had the house opened up for a couple of weeks now. Chilly enough at night that we close most of them at sunset. We had a record low yesterday morn of 34.

Right? There are many that suggest separate but equal - but how can that possible work? It's her body, her risks, her life - the fetus is along for the ride and hopefully all works out for a happy ending. But if wishes were horses...
Sigh..you know Age,I would love to see no need for abortion at anytime,especially for women who can't afford to raise their child,or who are not ready for the task,because of what ever reason.
As we look at this, Brown v. Board of Education (347 U.S. 483 (1954)) overruled Plessy v. Ferguson (163 U.S. 537 (1896) with regards to the 'separate but equal' doctrine.
Now comes Casey,the US Supreme Court went with stare decisis as the basis for their decision, I think,they thought,they should only change the law when society and,or legal philosophy had changed. In Casey,here comes the undue burden change. State may enact regulations to further the health and safety of a woman seeking an abortion, as long as the regulation does not impose an undue burden. No one knows,what the heck, the courts undue burden really means. It's a guess at best,so a case by case basis,is implied. As Bit, put it not,enough abortion clinics,no money to get one,would be fine example of undue burden. I agree,this would most likely stop someone from having an abortion,but this isn't black and white, either. Both sides are scared as hell of this. The case of Jennie Linn McCormack really got under my skin,unable to find the exact time she aborted,the closest I can find is 19-21 weeks,still not viable,but pretty damn close. As someone pro-life,my emotions got the best of me. Just as the Gosnell case got under my skin,not only because of the deaths he caused to women,but the women going along with it,well past viability. I'm sure this post will get negative results,and I'll gladly be judged a nut job,and clueless. There will never be a middle to this,because folks don't want a middle,not on this board, anyway. As my mother put it,give someone an inch and they'll take a mile,so true of both sides.

You and I are not so far apart with our perspectives on abortion, OL. However, I do disagree on one part. There is already a middle ground regarding abortion. And that is one pregnant woman at a time deciding for herself to remain pregnant or not. Nobody else is legally able to force or coerce a woman to remain pregnant or abort against her will as things currently stand (less overly restrictive, unnecessary state laws designed to prohibit abortion by "allowing" women to change their mind and remain pregnant).
