OH...a mythology nut is pointing fingers at another mythology!! How quaint! Imagine that, a religion that is sexist and wishes to control women! Who would have thought!James says, "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27)
The Pro-Life movement is full of organizations that care for women who are carrying an unborn baby, have given birth to an unborn baby, or even have had a abortion. I have seen and heard women speak who were saved from a botched abortion. Here's just a few examples:
Now about control of women: The Moslem religion is ALL about the control of women! Where are the liberal voices criticizing the Moslem countries for their anti-women rights policies?
I like the muslims as much as I like any male hierarchy phallic worshipping religions, but even they are not as crazy as you fetus sniffers on this subject:
""When abortion is permissible
Among Muslims, the permissibility of abortion depends on factors such as time and extenuating circumstances. Before four months of gestation""
"Threat to the woman's life
On the issue of the life of the woman, Muslims universally agree that her life takes precedence over the life of the fetus. This is because the woman is considered the "original source of life", while the fetus is only "potential" life. Muslim jurists agree that abortion is allowed based on the principle that "the greater evil [the woman's death] should be warded off by the lesser evil [abortion]." In these cases the physician is considered a better judge than the scholar.["
Here is a liberal who has much to say about women and religion:
"The truth is that male religious leaders have had - and still have - an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women. They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter." Jimmy Carter
And by the way, what have you CONSERVATIVES done through all your wars for oil to improve the lives of women in the middles east? Not a damn thing.
