    In the USA and many other nations, it is not a crime, but a legal medical procedure.

    Whew!! That makes me feel better! As long as it's legal then I guess God is OK with it, right? :BangHead:

    Slavery was legal in our nation for hundreds of years. I guess it was OK since it was LEGAL (unless you were one of the slaves!)



    Let's see.....I suppose we could refer to slavery as a "legal social arrangement" so as to soften the tone for the general public.

    It may be legal in the States but it is a sin against God.

    Crime


    If abortion is declared a crime ... and I assume you mean all abortions ... I have two questions. And they are sincere questions, not ones to provoke fighting.

    1. How much time in jail should the woman be sentenced to?

    2. How much time in jail should the father be given for putting the woman in that situation where she opted for an abortion?

    Same as any other murder.

    If he assisted n her getting the abortion he should be an accomplice. Let's not forget the doctor as well.

    Seems to me that by being the father he is automatically an accomplic regardless of whether she has the baby or has an abortion. If the baby is born he should be required to help take care of his son or daughter, at least financially. :tonofbricks:

    But without him there would be no abortion, thus no murder. So he is an accomplice and should also be punished. Your logic is like saying the "get away man" should not be charged along with the robber as he only drove the car, he didn't steal or hold up the bank. So, what punishment should be given the young man?:tonofbricks:

    Why would there be no abortion without him?

    No, your logic would be that the builder of the bank should be thrown in prison because without the builder there would be no bank to rob.

    Crabtownboy,
    As the law stands now, if your wife wanted an abortion you would be powerless to stop it.
    If the man is party to the woman's decision then yes he should be held as an accomplice. Fact is, the man has no voice if the woman wanted an abortion. It is the woman's choice that she makes. Frankly if she had said no instead of giving herself to a man then there would be no need for an abortion. The woman does have a choice. If she gives herself to a man then she and the man bare a responsibility to the coming child. To raise it or to give it up for adoption. That is the only choice that God allows.
    Murder is not a choice and human life is the responsibility of all of us.

    As it should be. It isn't the man who is pregnant. Hopefully, the husband and wife could talk through it, but ultimately, it is, and should be, her decision.

    Let's try to indict his parents too.. because if they hadn't had him, he couldn't have gotten her pregnant!

    What silly arguments people propose to justify baby murder...

    BTW, if she has it, HE does owe child support.. .I know, I used to be an skip tracer looking for these deadbeats!

    Not sure who you think is justifying abortion. I simply say that both the man and woman should be held to some responsibility for the abortion.

    Am I correct in that you are saying he should be responsible to help if the baby is born, but that if she has an abortion of the baby he fathered than he has no responsibility and gets off scott free? Seem a strange logic. I am always somewhat amused at the length we men will go to to avoid taking any responsibility.

    I doubt you really mean it is all right for him to get her pregnant and that is where his responsibility ends if she has an abortion? Sounds like the Saudias attitude toward women, "It was obviously her fault.":tonofbricks:

    That is the most retarded form of logic I have ever heard.
