  • A baby's heart starts beating 22 days after conception...usually before a woman even knows she's pregnant. An abortion is stopping a beating heart...which is murder. Yes its wrong no matter when its done.

  • no. it's still not a fun decision to have to make. i do have a problem with post-first trimester abortions - i think if you can't make this choice within three months you're an idiot and too stupid, selfish, or immature to have a child anyway though... but then, i don't believe abortion is a sin - are you asking people who are on the fence, people who are completely against it, or people who are fully pro-choice? obviously you're going to get answers consistent with the variety of beliefs about this.

  • i don't believe abortion is a sin

    I'm just curious why you feel this way figaro. Are you a Christian? You honestly feel that God would be okay with women getting abortions?

  • Nope. It is still life according to biology. Heart beat or no heart beat it is a living organism. It is HUMAN. It will not be a lizard or bug, it is HUMAN in DNA, therefore it is murder period, no matter what. Generally you know you are pregnant AFTER its heart starts beating, though.

  • anon: obviously not. i am, however, deeply religious and believe in the Way, which involves both life and death, good and evil acts, and mainly personal responsibility. we all much live with our choices, regardless of whether or not there is someone judging us at the end of our lives... until that point we must live with our choices and their consequences. human beings are not born perfect according to the bible (i.e. that's the whole point of christians baptizing their children - to cleanse them of their original sin), so i frankly don't find all that a very good argument - not consistent with the rest of it. god sent his own child to die... why wouldn't he be okay with it? i know that i'm being facetious here, but i'm just trying to show you how ridiculous your arguments are to those of us whose arguments you find ridiculous.

  • missbreezy or other prolifer/christian: what's your interpretation of miscarriage? is it punishment against the mother? since typically miscarriage happens when a child has a genetic problem, how do you explain that god allows imperfect fetuses to form only to emotionally devastate their mothers when they miscarry? why would "god" kill a child that has a heartbeat? or do you blame the mother for that too?

  • murdering an innocent baby at anytime during the pregnancy is wrong.

    to figaro8895 - why do you blame God for a miscarriage - God doesn't kill the baby. There is God and then there's satan, why not blame the right one. It is satan who comes to kill, still and destroy. God gives good things.

    Also miscarriage is different than an abortion, no comparison... abortion is intentionally ending the life of an innocent baby.
    Comparing a miscarriage to an abortion and your comment is extremely insensitive especially to those of us who have had a miscarriage. For whatever reason, I was not able to carry my first baby to term... and it wasn't God's fault.
