Abortion is not a good thing, but remember, the VAST majority of preggos are overjoyed at their pregnancy!
But you have to protect the rights of those one or two pathological cases - where some teenage girl has been getting raped by her mama's drunken boyfriend since she started to grow tits - so you're going to heap more abuse on her by summarily condemning her to 20 years' hard labor? For what? The sin of gettingn raped?
Freedom of Choice is essentially the foundation of Freedom itself! "Oh, she should have known better!" you say? Well, what about a 13- or 14-year old girl that's getting raped by her motner's drunken boyfriend?
No, people need to retain the Right to Freedom of Choice, or we're just going to turn into another damnable theocracy.
And I can't understand the theocrats' posisiton anyway - it says rignt in Genesis 2:7 that when God breathed the Breath of Life into Adam's nostrils, that's when he became a living being.
In other words, the line is drawn at breath. When the fetus is expelled, then when it takes its breath, it's a separate being. If you're going to bible-thump as an excuse to enslave women, then you should at least thump the whole thing!
If a woman's body AND ITS CONTENTS aren't her own property, then, will one of you zealots please tell me exactly whose property she is?
Freedom is my Worship Word!
