Have you spoken to and asked any of those women? Nope you have simply abused, mocked and threatened them based on your own ignorance and wishes.
It is part of their body, cells from their body and growing in their body, using nutrients from their body and sometimes even causing damage to their body. It is not your body and you are not medically qualified to make judgement on health matters therefore you have no say in the matter. This of course does not stop you having a say in order to impose your will on the woman.
I find it so hypocritical of you that at the same time you are condemning abortion you condone the deaths of 800,000,000 people (excluding the foetuses that were not counted) with humour and you expect thanks for it – are they not human?
Where did I say the foetus was not human? Oh I get it, you are lying.
Never so defenceless – try standing in the way of a bullet or bomb. Victims of violence are pretty defenceless too but that never stopped a good christian going into a cinema or school and blasting away at anyone who moves.
Or setting up in front of a Planned Parenthood center and shooting doctors and nurses that work in those facilities. Snipers for Jesus. Shooting them in the back, or through windows. Eric Rudolph is really enjoying his life after setting off bombs for Jesus.

Do they ever make distinctions, I really think the problems are more racial than spiritual, however it’s the religion that breed the racism.
That's probably true. In the old colonial days, native people were seen as "benighted heathens". Ironically, their descendants are often more religious than us.

Getting permits and protesting legally in fronr of a planned parenthood or any other abortion mill is a right in the united states and legal. I have legally protested abortion. I have never killed nor would I condone that. That is against Christ's teaching to love unconditionally, even to love your enemies. No one who is a christian (ie a dedicated follower of christ) would dare think that he authorizes killing anybody.

So your god sinned, not them.
You wouldn't punish a baby for getting injured. Or would you?
<quoted text>
let's look at your own words for the answer to your own question:

you said "..they didn't know what right and wrong was BEFORE eating of the tree of knowledge"

first off - it was called the 'tree of the knowledge OF GOOD AND EVIL' AND God said "don't eat of it"

second - we're not talking about babies and we're not talking about getting injured - WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DISOBEYING A DIRECT COMMAND FROM GOD- which is exactly what you continuoulsy do everytime you dodge these reasonable responses to your unreasonable assumptions.

now you'd be doing your own self a huge favor if you check yourself before you wreck yourself;-)

But if they didn't already know about good and evil, the only reason for them to disobey a command is that they were made imperfectly.

So it's all your god's fault. You can squirm all you like, but your story has a massive plot hole in it.

"In my opinion, claims that Hitler was a Christian at the time he committed these crimes (he may have been as a child, I don’t know) or that Stalin was a Christian, which I’ve also heard, put the claimants in the same intellectual space as holocaust deniers.
Another important point is that most of these deaths were the result of government leaders, killing their own citizens. Again, Hitler is a special case in that he also killed civilians in conquered territories of the Reich. Whether or not this made them citizens is a point of law. I think it does, since he was responsible for their governance.
There are a plethora of places where you can verify these numbers, if you are so-minded.
Mao Ze-Dong (China, 1958-61 and 1966-69, Tibet 1949-50) 49-78,000,00 people murdered
Jozef Stalin (USSR 1932-39 only) 15,000,000 people murdered
Pol Pot (Cambodia, 1975-79) 1,700,000 people murdered
Kim II Sung (North Korea 1948-94) 1.6 million people murdered
Tito (Yugoslavia 1945-1987) 570,000 people murdered
Suharto (Communists 1967-66) 500,000 people murdered
Ante Pavelic (Croatia 1941-45) 359,000 people murdered
