Whenever the discussion of abortion comes up, MOST of the Christians here just say it's murder, it's sinful, it shouldn't happen no matter what the circumstances are, if you can't take care of a baby you should keep your legs closed, etc. Well I just read a previous post written by a Christian woman who got an abortion, and all the Christians who responded said god would forgive her and they would pray for her. Not ONE person told her she was a murderer, or that she shouldn't have had sex with her husband. Now, I'm pro-choice so I'm not saying ANYTHING against this lady's choice- but doesn't it strike you as a little hypocritical? If I posted saying I'm an athiest who had an abortion, would you all be so forgiving? Somehow I doubt it. Is this more of the "hate this sin, love the sinner" mantra?Answer Question

If you are talking about my question......"Am i forgiven" then I will stand up for those people who helped me. I've been so scared to write that ? because of the things you stated. I thought I'd be bashed all to heck. I'm not going to say that I am any one religion because I'm not, but I do have my beliefs. These people gave me so much comfort yesterday that I could finally sleep. My lesson learned is that even if and when I don't agree with others here about this debate, there is good in all of us, and that your beliefs have a foundation of good regardless of the manner in which I and or we try to get them across. I have many friends--atheists, Jews, and more in my melting pot, but it was here that I found some peace. If you agree or not with what I did, don't go against the people who offered me help. I'm not preaching or accusing so please don't think that, but I am taking a stand regarding my question. Thank you.

Also maybe it is in the context of the questions and answers around here. My question did not attack any religion, but asked if I was forgiven for my sin. I wasn't trying to say who was right wrong or anything. I asked a question I've been full of fear about because I do believe in God, but don't have much religious knowledge or formal religious education. So please don't judge those who helped me. I'm seeing more clearly now, than I have in weeks. I'm not a sudden convert, just accepting of the forgiveness we and whatever God you believe can give. If you don't believe then I would call you friend, but since I do I had to know. I had to know for me based on taking responsibility for my abortion.

Christians will never agree with sinning no matter what it is.(Real Christians anyway.) You cannot expect us to say yes abortion is ok. It would not have mattered to me what religion you are. I do know my response would of been that you need to have God into your life and repent. Then others would say I was being hateful for trying to give helpful advice.So something tells me if you did post it you wouldn't welcome Christians reply.
