Godwin's Law in less than 10 posts. That might be a record.

On that day, I'll stand before God with a clear conscience. At least about abortion. How about you?

Interesting statement. You're aware that your conscience isn't entirely clear, but you've decided that plank in your eye can be totally ignored while you attack what you perceive as someone else's. I'm pretty sure the bible speaks against that. But hey, it's your bible. You can ignore it if you want. That's your sin to worry about and I'm not in charge of your soul. I wish you felt the same about others'.

God (if you believe in such a being, which you seem to) aborts millions of babies. If God does it, it must (by definition) be moral. So, yes, my conscience is also clear on that score. I'm more worried about the millions of kids who are starving because any type of social program is viewed as omgsocialismgasp! How clear is your conscience on that one?

I'm proud of supporting abortion rights. I'm proud of the many adults whose lives were not destroyed by a pregnancy they never wanted, or that they wanted but that went badly. I'm proud that many unwanted children weren't raised by mothers who never wanted to give birth to them, and who would have told them so. Or who would murder them as toddlers while dealing with post partum depression. Or who would superglue their hands to a wall and beat them into a coma because they wouldn't potty train as fast as the 23 year old mother of 5 would like (she got 99 years in prison today - a few abortions would have been easier on everyone).

I wish God had a way to keep people from ever getting pregnant unless they wanted to, could afford to, and the baby would be healthy. Until then, we humans will do our best to correct bad situations, and be proud of doing so.
