As seems typical in today’s marketplace of ideas, the pro-lifers and pro-choicers are talking past each other with neither side listening to the other. As a male, the abortion question isn’t about my body, it’s about my religion! Murder is about taking some one’s life away from them. The abortion question then is: when does a fetus have a life? While I would never try to denigrate the believe that each sperm and egg has a life prior to combining, I do not hold to that belief or of the heartbeat belief. My personal belief follows the bibles Genesis 2.7 “God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
The thing that confuses me the most about the pro-lifers is their opposition to Sharia Law, without their realizing that what they want is their version of religious law. I feel that they want to continue on with their anger and hate of pro-choicers eliminating the possibility of joining forces to reduce abortions, (part of what Planned Parenthood is all about). Abortions are at an all time measured low and unlikely to go much lower, whether legal or not. I think we can all agree that abortion is the worst form of birth control, Why can’t we defer our judgments to our higher power?
