Who the hell are you to criticise someone who has been raped? What gave you the moral highground to tell someone who has been violated in the most disrespectful manner what they should do? You write in the style of a petty dictator who doesn't know what they are talking about and has obviously never experienced the pain of being raped, or having someone in your family who has been raped, or even knowing someone who has been raped.

As for God "letting" things happen, that is the typical rant of the religiouly uneducated and ignorant christian hater.
Leviticus Chapter 17 Verse 11, "The life is in the blood" and in verse 14, "for the life of all flesh is its blood." And even earlier in God's instruction to Noah, the Bible says, "you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood" (Gen. 9:4). And again in Deuteronomy 12:23, "the blood is the life."

However, when a woman is pregnant due to rape ... why on earth would you wish to add murder to her list of problems that she is dealing with? That's insane. It is hard enough on a woman who has been raped to deal with that, but to add murdering her own child - that's just adding insult to injury.
. . .
There is always a right answer. In the case of abortion the right answer is this - No abortion unless the life of the woman is in danger. Period. Anything else is murder and just adds the mental stress of murdering her child upon the woman.

I have always wanted to ask the hardcore pro-life crowd a series of questions. Do you believe in the death penalty?
Do you want to be kept alive by machines when you are old and sick, or would you rather be taken off of life support and allowed to die?
Do you eat meat? Go hunting? Ever set a mousetrap, or used a fly swatter? Ever euthanized a pet? God said "Thou shalt not kill." He didn't make exceptions.
Try not to be so quick to judge others. That job belongs to the Man Upstairs.
In simplest terms, you generally start with two living things and end up with one, so clearly at least one was lost along the way even under the best circumstances, eh? The fact is what usually happens during fertilization is death and destruction on the scale of a micro-genocide, with an occasional lone pair of improbable survivors fusing in the midst of the chaos. But scientifically, if you want to be simple and accurate, there is not a single step in early human development that goes from non-life to life.

This thread belongs in social issue even when the OP is preaching, is not conspiracy here, just bible quoting and the heated opinion of the posters.
So I will ask the thread started, to show where the conspiracy is in his opening bible quotes.
