When you decide to open a can of worms, you go for the BIG can!
Free Will is the issue, and I can't imagine that it hasn't been discussed here on ATS ad nauseum.
God has given us Free Will (which is used to explain all the bad things people do which God didn't prevent, including abortion).
If God is all-knowing, all-seeing, etc. then he must know the future.
If God knows what will happen in the future then it must be "pre-determined."
If the future is pre-determined then how can we have Free Will?
You would think that God, knowing a pregnancy will be aborted, wouldn't put a soul there. So if God didn't put a soul there, the mother didn't
kill a "human" because God, knowing that she was going to decide to abort (what free will??), didn't give it a soul. Or would God deliberately put
a soul knowing that it would be terminated before birth just so that the mother would be guilty of murder since that's the decision he already knew
she would make....
Think about it some more ... someone might enjoy watching your head explode.
