Well, you've kicked a hornet's nest here, haven't you? LOL.
I very, very rarely tread into this subject, but speaking for myself, I'm in agreement with you in that I believe abortion to be morally reprehensible.
Regardless, at this stage, the arguments have long since been made by both sides, and people know what they're getting into and are going to do what they're going to do. If they can morally justify it to themselves, that's between them and their creator and if there are any consequences in whatever comes after this life, that's their problem, not mine.
Perhaps what is wrong with the entire thread is the lack of divulged information. Maybe if people like you didn't make those who shared feel like crap for doing so, maybe more people would share.

How exactly am I making "those who shared feel like crap for doing so"?
You're not. I consider your responses appropriate and reasonable.
As I said earlier in the thread, I have supported an (ex) partner through an abortion. It was not a decision made lightly, but it was appropriate and it was a personal decision.
I disagree wholeheartedly with the OP.

So many Christians care little for the Bible and God's word nowadays it's a joke.
Actually, she did. She made me feel like crap for caring about others and for sharing.
I forget though that this is not a place for sharing, this is a place where empathy for one another is non-existent. Where the only thing that is shared is hate and dread.
I am a real Christian but thanks for your concern.
It's almost hilarious when I get called a bad Christian for standing up for whats in the Bible. So many Christians care little for the Bible and God's word nowadays it's a joke.
The popular notion of 'being Christian' nowadays is more like a hippy pipe dream free for all where anyone can do anything just as long as they don't judge.
It's a joke.
Jesus would never condone Gay marriage or Abortion because God wouldn't, but when a Christian speaks out about these things from a loving place they get called a bad Christian.
