Your premise works on the assumption that all men are 'good men'. We both know that's not the case, and that deadbeat dads (and moms) are actually quite common.
When you figure out a way to physically bind a man to his unborn progeny for nine months, allocating to his body all the risks of gestation, let me know.
I live in a house, in a very quiet neighborhood - if you think living in a trailer park is somehow shameful, don't buy a trailer.
I'm quite aware that you are in no way 'holier' than I ...perhaps you should stop trying to be.
What's a 'crack pipe'?

<quoted text>You're responding to something I said to the poster "dedbebbies", are you that poster? First of all, if so, who the hell would come onto an abortion forum with such a fk'ed up name? You're not here for debate, or even capable of intelligent conversation, you just want to spew your ignorance. Secondly,... no, clarify that you're not “dedbeebies” before I even waste my time.
It's a public forum, fella. I'll answer any question, or respond to any post, I care to.

You just used up 65 words avoiding a rational response to my assertions, and instead of refuting the assertions, you decided personal slurs might have a chance at shutting me up.

Didn't work.
Still just me, nailing your ass to the wall of your puffery.

<quoted text>That's utter crap. What on earth makes you think >>I<< would want a baby to die?
And what on earth makes you so sure she didn't? Her husband says they discussed it thoroughly, and neither of them would opt to be artificially kept alive. That's pretty straightforward. As for the fetus, it's brain development has likely been compromised, and perhaps severely - the father is understandably reticent to take on the responsibility for the child for the rest of his/her life, since it may not be able to develop mentally, but could live for years, dependent on him for a lifetime. Maybe neither he, nor his wife, would willingly sign up for that.
I just don't happen to believe that makes either of them 'bad people'. I suspect you do.
Whatevs - it's really not something we have a say in, and little relevance to.
Bad people no, weak people, maybe. As it stands now the father has no say either. I hope his baby is healthy and he learns to love it.

She just said there wasn't any. Can't you read or are you so sure of what someone else will say, that you don't have to?

Well that takes no thought or energy. Glad you have simplified your life and laxed your standards to meet your moral code. The bar is about as low as it can go. In fact it is on the floor.

Since you're taking it upon yourself to assess him as 'weak', perhaps you should be packing for your trip.....obviously, you also plan to take the raising of this child upon yourself, alleviating the burden on this weak fellow child of God....

Right?

Of course not - that kid is HIS problem...why should you make it yours, just because you agree that he should have no say in the disposition of his wife's mortal remains, and are gratified to see that his wife's corpse is being literally forced to gestate a potentially compromised fetus?

You are one sick bitch.

Umm...duh...cuz I wanted to have kids. Because, I just didn't want to get an abortion. Newsflash Hon...not everyone who is PC automatically thinks about abortion when they get pregnant. Just because it's an option doesn't mean everyone thinks about it.
You and Sassy are really REALLY dense.
Oh I know that it doesn't automatically enter their mind to get an abortion when pregnant. It wouldn't enter my mind either. It is a line I wouldn't cross no matter what. Maybe you have never been in a position where you were pregnant with a child you didn't want. Is there no circumstance that you would have an abortion or is it innately out of the question?

Hardly. It takes more thought to think for yourself than it does to follow a bunch of rules made up by men pretending to speak for the Divine.

You've just proven, once again, that you're completely ego-centric, and without the desire to expand your horizons one millimeter beyond your comfort zone.
But of course, you've shown this attitude consistently.
I don't need a belief that asks nothing of me so that I don't have to strive to be a better person. I am not looking for the easy way to get through life. I am willing to accept anything God throws at me or asks of me. Can you accept any of these beliefs or are you narrow minded and ego centric? It works both ways.

Well he isn't displaying a strong demeanor. If he was strong he would face the reality of his situation and accept the outcome. His wife will die soon enough and he needs to make plans for the new life that she left. That is what all God loving people would do.

Who are you to say that it takes no thought or energy to honor the Divine?

How arrogant can you possibly be?

"Lax standards"? My standards pertain to my own behavior, and they're quite high. I expect a great deal from myself, having been gifted with strong intellect, willing and able limbs, and inherent cultural advantage...I don't need a 'god' to remind me how fortunate I am, or how I can contribute to the wheel of life. Why do you?

You seem to have a problem with the fact that my personal standards don't pertain to your behavior (and vice versa), or incline me to worship a "god". Why is that?

The poster said that the Divine didn't ask anything, just was. How hard can it be to live up to nothing being asked?

Apparently your god asks that you assess those folks who don't believe in YOUR god, as holding beliefs that ask nothing of them. What a bummer.

The fact is, that Christians inevitably rely on an external source for their morality. Christians are perfectly willing to claim 'God' told them to do this, or not do that, rather than take personal responsibility for their own actions, or the lack thereof. Why is that?

They didn't say "asked". They said "demand". It's not their fault you cannot tell the difference.

And, even if they HAD said asked, HOW does that translate into the poster having no standards?

Are YOU incapable of expecting things from yourself without a God demanding them, or even asking for them?

If you really need those rules to tell you not to do/not do something, then YOU are the one who has no personal standards.

Well, that answers my question. You ARE incapable of thinking for yourself.

Breathe in......and now breathe out, Witless.

By the way, Idiot, you don't have to accept anyone else's beliefs. And no one has to accept yours. That is the whole point.

Perhaps it is you who can not read, kitty killer.

" The 25th is the commonly accepted date to celebrate His birth"

Perhaps it is similar to your selective memory, except in this instance you only see what you want to see.
