Just to present a different point of view, I know someone who is a child of rape. It would be awfully hurtful to say to her that it would have been ok for her mom to abort her because her biological father is a rapist. And her mother loved her no less than I love my children, they were very close (the mother has since passed away). Even though the circumstance of the conception was horrible, that mom loved her child very much and considered her 100% hers, a gift from God regardless. I believe that mother had immense faith and love to keep her child and I also believe the daughter helped her mom to heal from a brutal experience.

Moving story...I think God would honor that and give them grace. That would be very difficult to overcome but anything is possible with God...

Gotta love the division the powers that be have created and the way they get us to war against each other.

Old thread.

I'm no longer a Christian. When I was, I thought abortion was a tragedy. I still do.

I'm conflicted on whether or not it should be "legal" only because some people have made good points. First point being that a woman's right to decide what happens with her own body should absolutely be protected. I agree. But that conflicts with my feeling that we, as a society, should be protecting the innocent, and how much more innocent can you get than an unborn child?

Second point being that it is difficult to say exactly when a fetus becomes a "person", since that's not really a scientific determination at this point. I understand that. But my personal thought is, who cares ... the fact that it either IS a person already, or WILL BECOME a person at some point (sans any natural or human intervention which would kill/destroy it) should be enough for us to treat it with the utmost care and respect.

It's a heartbreaking topic to me.

Thread closed. Abortion is a political topic; not religious.
