I kinda love how smug and self-righteous this comment sounds in my head!
oh no wait...that might be because it is smug and self righteous
Naw! Christians...smug and self righteous!? Surely, you jest, sir!
When will the Christian mentality learn that there are other, more valid, worldviews than just the Christian worldview. As someone state, get a grip.
Mentality is the one thing christians lack.
Ooooh, epic burn, atheists! He trolled you all real good. Time to celebrate with some self-congratulatory masturbation, eh? Killing more babies.... Mmmmmmm!
Sounds like dinnah time!
We already HAVE learned, that's the thing. It is you who lacks education. :)
I don't really ponder abortion nor do I obsess over it. There's no logic in being saddened by someone else choice, whether it was based on selfish, callousness or what not. Not my problem.
But if the person's (the mother) choice is murder (as pro-lifers see it) then is it not societies responsibility to defend the victim (the fetus)?
I would conjecture that conciousness defines life, therefore once the foetus develops conciousness (not sure exactly when but I do recall that this does happen during pregnancy, I'll try and find references if ya like) it's a baby and abortion is wrong, however before this point I think the wishes of the mother/father should be upheld. I would expect a lot of people would probably reject my conciousness = life theory though :P
consciousness without free will is worthless.
Without free will / self determination, we are but vegetables. Yes vegetables are life... but...
