The Soul Argument:
Here's the thing: we don't have any way of knowing what God would choose to do for those who have been aborted. Maybe that was their one and only
chance at life, and instead of being born as (and to) someone else, they go to Heaven . All that they were meant to do, all the lessons that they and
those whose lives they were meant to impact, everyone they were supposed to love and be loved by, the children they were meant to grow up and have one
day and those generations to come....
Well that sort of puts the kybosh on God being the all knowing, omnipotent being does it not? Why would that soul's only chance be with a host who
was unwilling for whatever reason, to give birth to it? Surely God would have known from the outset that this would be the result, if the unborn
soul's life path, lessons etc had been decided in advance, then it doesn't seem like the work of someone with an intentional plan.
This is the issue with the God element, on the one hand, we have the above, emotive, God had a plan for that unborn soul and now that cannot happen,
but on the other, if God can do that amount of planning, then surely part of the plan would be that the child would be born, and if God knows the
outcome of every situtation at the outset, then he'd know also that in the case where a woman gets pregnant in impossible circumstances, that the
child never would be born.
And I was always led to believe that God's plans were always adhered to, even when bad things happen, oh well it's part of the plan to get me to
where I need to be, so in that vein, it must be assumed that abortion is also part of God's plans.
