Re: Abortion rights rhetoric concerning killing unborn children:
I wouldn't have an abortion myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others.
If you don't believe in abortions, then don't have one.
An interesting spin on those lofty thoughts: Pro-life rhetoric concerning those who butcher full term infants:
I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others.
If you don't believe in shooting abortionists, then don't shoot one.
(The last two phrases above are by Ann Coulter...who is regularly spoken of a being "mean." )
As I have mentioned before, I do not agree that is a "right" for anyone to kill babies, born or unborn.
Killing bratty teenagers and child molesters...I am willing to consider the option case by case.
As I have also mentioned in another post, the Old Testament does direct the stoning of disrespectful children. My personal belief is that God allowed this so parents could think about doing it without sinning, knowing full well that most parents are too tired to round up enough stones to get the job done.
Gathering stones would give everyone time to cool off and re-thing what was happening.
But I would never agree to killing bratty teens or child molesters by burning their skin off with saline solution, hacking them apart (without anesthesia!) or slicing open their heads and sucking out their brains like the abortion rights folk routinely sanction.
I guess I am just a wuss. I could never imagine doing that to another human being.
Born or unborn.
Unlike those who think it is a perfectly fine freedom of choice option.
