    Did you know the leading cause of death in America is murder? YES! Murder!

    Over 3700 babies are murdered in the womb every day in America making it more deadly than smoking, so being in a mothers womb is a scary place to be now-a-days.

    I quit smoking 24 years ago, Thank God for He helped me to do so. AMEN!!!

    I find it amazing that anyone would be a smoker anymore - or that anyone would even take it up anymore.

    Really people. Don't you know the leading cause of death is:

    Birth?

    "For it is appointed unto men once to die..."

    All this talk about what individuals die from is a smoke screen so they won't have to consider the fact that they WILL die. Doesn't matter what from. Matters much more what happens after.

    "and after this the judgement"

    Changes the perspective some when you look at it that way doesn't it?

    Beat me to it!

    The most dangerous place for a person to be today is in the womb of their mother!

    Some people can turn anything into a rant on abortion.

    >3700 babies are murdered in the womb every day

    And if they were not, 36995 would be applying for additional welfare every day. That would not torque anyone on this list? You all would be happy to have your taxes increased?

    So the vast majority of abortions are by women on welfare?

    I'll respond to the troll man...

    Yes, I for one would gladly pay higher taxes if it saved the lives of innocent children. Are you saying that you wouldn't?

    I guess we all just saw billwald's heart. Poor people don't deserve to live. I thought liberals were supposed to like poor people?

    I don't smoke.

    The thread title is "Leading Causes of Death." In our country, abortion is the number 1 cause of death. Just stating a fact.

    And to our gentleman poster who would apparently rather abort all welfare recipients, shame on you! Your post was both heartless and soulless. How do you live with yourself?

    Liberals always equate abortion down to a cost analysis. Remember Obama said he wouldn't want his daughters to have to PAY for a mistake (pregnancy).

    I challenge everyone in here to research a little on Margaret Sanger. :thumbsup:

    I give praise to God that he allowed me to have a part in helping a young woman decide NOT to abort her baby this week.

    You wouldn't want them to find that eugenics is the basis for the progressive movement authorizing anytime anyplace abortion would you?

    Hitler was the best of the progressive eugenics movement. He didn't just talk about it , he did it.

    Planned parenthood is the best progressives can offer right now to perpetuate their racist eugenics agenda. That's why they build most of their facilities in, or close to, poor, mostly minority neighborhoods. They want abortion to be free (government paid for) and readily accessible to minorities and the poor.

    You wouldn't want anyone to find all that out, would you?

    Perish the thought!

    Yes, the title is "leading cause..." but the OP is about smoking. I'm with Crabby on this, lets discuss smoking.

    So first of all do we restrict smoking even more or do we just outlaw smoking totally.

    Should we in Baptist churches make an issue out of it - for membership, ect?

    I think we can all agree that smoking is bad, but what should we do about it in a democratic republic.

    Should the same apply for other non-healthy habits - candy, soda, fast food, alcoholic (oh we tried that once)

    The bottom line is every one will die ( unless you are pre-trib).

    50 years ago, we lost 50,000 a year on American highways. 1 for every 3000 Americans. Today we are loosing about 40,000 per year - thats about 1 for every 7150 Americans.
    But now more Americans are dying from heart disease and other older age problems. Why is that - because many of those who die from smoking would have died in an auto collision had not conditions improved over the past 50 years.

    once again agreeing with Crabby

    I just didn't want to see her mess up her life worse than it already is. God allowed me to be in the right place at the right time, and to have the right help at the right time. Thank God for Godly women counselors!!

    Why is my business if another person in this theoretically free country wants to smoke or eat himself to death?

    The other day a goofy guy on Coast described a new men's organization he represented whose program entails imagining that one has only one year to live and this is to cause one to become a more successful person. If I was to imagine that I would be dead in one year the first thing would do would be to forget about diet and buy a half gallon of every kind of ice cream I could find. In a year I would be 400 pounds and probably dead. Should it also be illegal to commit suicide by ice cream?
