So many opinions in this thread! Why not let them go??
So many opinions? Well, because it has to do with women, their reproductive rights and with sex, all very vexed questions for many men, in particular, and
for those who are rather rigid and literal in their interpretations of the religions that they cleave to. Letting the opinions go would not be a bad idea.
Mr Man's msg bears repeating, and hopefully (against all odds), this thread an get back on track.
For future contributors, keep this thread in task, or the msgs will go away. The following by Mr Man is a good directive for focusing the this back what the OP's initial thrust was:
Mr Man wrote:A few questions to try and get this thread back towards the OP, which was revived from three years ago.
Is opposing abortion a moral obligation?
What are the knock on effects of not allowing/allowing abortion?
What can we do as a society to decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies and how can we give helpful support, which is a appropriate, to those who find themselves with unwanted pregnancies?
This is the last paragraph from the article -
"If you insist on talking sin, then at least let the ones who will bear the consequences of the sin make their own decisions. If they believe the mothers are just asking the souls who will be born as their children to wait until they are ready, who are you to intervene? And if your high moral ground ends up causing others injuries and deaths, whose sin is it going to be now? Think about it."
