Although a complete departure from the original thread, the thought of why not protect Porky too, deserved some sort of reply.
Of course, the gap starts with faith. For those who do not believe in God, (I am speaking primarliy of a Christian God), then human life is not
sacred, etc., etc.
But the argument boils down the same way on both sides, infortunately. IF a pro-choice person concedes that used as a form of birth control, abortion
is a-moral, then they risk the chance of having any kind of regulation placed upon it, etc., etc..
IF a pro-life person happens to agree that a victim of rape, incest, or the other, would certainly want the ability to terminate that pregnancy, then
they have just compromised their position on the sanctity of life.
So since I believe that man has been given dominion and stewardship over the planet (by the way, a charge we have been horrible at maintaining), that
means, unfortunately, I can't compromise on the issue of rape and the lot, because it will be said that I have a logic breakdown in my argument.
Same holds for the other side of the argument.
Funny thing is, democracy is supposed to be about compromise. But then we get to get in to the fact that there is a separation of church and state,
and our Christian morality has no place in the forum of public debate, which is such utter nonsense.
I am so greatful that the mother of my wife decided NOT to abort her! Instead, she was given up for adoption, and life continues.
As for the pork? Cook it up. If that's what you want to eat. When pigs start having debates about their fate, let me know. They grow up, and
still can't function in society. A fetus will , however, given the chance.
