FK – (I posted this comment days ago and was really hoping he’d come back with some kind of response but he never did) The simple sad fact is that if abortion were banned completely there would still be black market or ‘back alley’ providers. A teenager going to a baby hacker because her ignorant parents have bronze age beliefs is not the same as me hiring a hit man to do away with a bad neighbor.
Abortion is a horribly nasty process and biological ‘life’ by whatever loose definition does begin at conception, or rather implantation. But what is ‘life’ and when does the ‘soul'(try finding a real definition for that one) enter the fertilized egg?
I don’t get to watch enough of your vids to know what version, sub-version or subversion of the ancient tribal propaganda you ascribe to so please try to explain why ‘Christians'(loosely defined) are so concerned over this issue? Are Catholics concerned that all those aborted babies will be burned alive in fire forever by their sadistic god if they don’t get to ‘christen’ them, which btw is not a symbolic act? Are protestants scared they won’t get to cajole the little kid into ‘gettin’ saved’ so he/she won’t be burned alive forever after dying in a car wreck on the way home from church after ‘saying “No” to Jesus at the alter call?
Maybe your slightly more intellectual version is among the minority and claims that all lost sinners will be simply burned up and killed or cast into outer darkness. But that is beside the point really. If the only reason we’re here is to prove to your god by whatever means that we’re worthy of being its eternal slaves then there’s really no reason to be here at all. A slave is someone who has no real ‘choice,’ especially when the ‘choice’ is slavery vs. torture for when some creature tells you “Be my good subject/slave or I’m going to kill and/or torture you(as the ancient tyrannical kings it was patterned after did to their subjects) then that creature considers you to be a slave.
It’s time to wake up and grow up cause nobody’s gonna get beamed up. We have the freedom we have, such as it is, because of that tiny minority in every generation that stood up and said “Hell no, we ain’t gonna do it that way anymore.” Often it was the ‘church’ of whatever type they were standing against. At least nowadays our western versions don’t burn heretics at the stake anymore though their middle-eastern cousins are a little more backwards.
The human race has a lot of growing up to do. We’re still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age. I don’t expect to be around long enough to see that change whether I die a ‘natural’ death or some other way or choose my own time for exit, which is and should be my right.
Maybe in the near future we can do what we should and provide every 14-year old male with a safe at the sperm bank and a vasectomy so this issue can be settled once and for all. But then too many ‘adults’ who still have the minds of children would object to such a simple solution.
I could go on and on with this, into what kind of ‘life’ the average aborted fetus would have anyway, would our country really be better off, what political party would really benefit, but that might all be too Earthly for your concerns…
