Praying for her speedy physical recovery, though the emotional recovery will last a lifetime.
I'm sorry... did I miss something here? I thought that the argument was to be more supportive of the women who chose not to abort? And to make them feel included, to help them to see that conservative values are in line with the values with which they would like to raise their children? Where did I get lost here?
I used to be pro-choice all the way (except for late-term). You're right, though... having been pregnant twice forced me to change my views on the subject.
Thanks for writing this up... while I regret having clicked that link to the photos of those poor babies, people do need to see them. Those babies need to be acknowledged.
No, these are the faces of the home invaders that scares me the most.
Wait a minute... they're both white.
Children don't ask to be born so much as accept an invitation. People shouldn't have children for there to be people in the world who "owe" them. Children are a gift. But part of our responsibility, when we send out the invitation for one of these gifts to come and live with us, is to be a responsible, strong, caring, and loving parent, and to raise them to be responsible, strong, caring, and loving adults.
No. They're not. But if you want to call estratton an atheist, I suppose that's between you and them.
Anyway, I have a friend who needs me right now more than this discussion does. Let me know when you're actually ready to stop dancing around my comment re: pedophiles and evil, etc.
Also, the arguments made my estratton are not the same as those made by Atheists. The arguments made by Atheists tend to lean toward "your God is a figment of your imagination, so pretty much anything that is in your book is a fairy tale, as well." What estratton is pointing out is what is fairly obvious: Very few Catholics will go around refusing to eat shellfish (unless they simply don't like it or are allergic... I've even known some to eat shellfish during Lent since it falls under the category of "seafood"), not cutting their hair (unless they're hippies), and trading their womenfolk for goats.
