I cant believe you just compared abortion to infanticide! They are not equal! This is exactly why religion shouldn't mix with politics.
I don't see why... yes, I am to some extent religious, but that does not impact on my view on abortion at all. Several notable Christian theologians have been pro-abortion, even within the Roman Catholic Church. There is absolutely no Biblical authority to condemn abortion, and it is an entirely divisible thing from religion.
On the infanticide issue: arguments were presented which would support infanticide, without making any credible argument against. That is clearly what I object to.
A fetus is not a life, it's a bunch of cells.
It clearly is alive, that much is biological fact; as for a bunch of cells, what do you think you are?
No one should be forced to have a child they did not want or even planned.
Why? We force people to look after their children once they are born.
A rape is traumatic enough without a child being involved. You may as well rule out contraception as it ends potential lives
Nope, 'potential life' is a nonsense; I am a potential criminal, that does not mean I get sent to jail for it.
Seriously, if this is the level of argument you're going to present, then there's not really much point even discussing the issue.
