If you haven't already seen this video, I would highly recommend watching it - no matter what side of the debate you are on.

After finding that a four month-old fetus had major deformities, a doctor recommended an abortion. Abortion protestors yelled at the pregnant woman as she was going in to have the abortion. Her husband came out and confronted them. He said, "You're yelling at my wife for doing nothing wrong but having a nearly dead baby inside of her. You're yelling at random people and you have no idea what you're doing to them, and you know what? It's despicable. You make people who are already upset, on the worst day of their lives, feel even worse."

This is the nature of fundamentalism, Karen. It makes people just plain stupid. I'm sad for that family and sadder still that the man's words probably made no difference to the protestors.

those whole-AAys only listen to their pagan popes propaganda

the bible shows a fetus is not a person
hebrew law said a fetus is nto a person

those people with their arrogance think they know better and
think they can force thier pagan relgion on everybody

Or else they're stupid to begin with and that's what makes fundamentalism appeal to them. They don't have to think or apply reason to determine what's right or wrong.

It's a heart-wrenching scene, isn't it?
The one protestor at least apologized - there may be hope for her.
I'd like to think the husband and his wife were later able to have a healthy child. He would make a wonderful father. Any daughter would be blest to have for a father a man who cares about women and their health.

I've seen it, Alpha. I thought it was interesting to note that you could hardly hear what the women were saying, and really, no loss, since it was pretty obvious they were just mouthing the same old, tired tirade. Good for the young man.

Many of us, horse, really don't care what the Bible or Hebrew law says about the fetus. That was then, this is now. Still, it does show that there has been understanding for many, many centuries, that one is not a human being until the first breath is drawn. Until then the fetus is a possible human.

Thanks for posting the link, Karen. It was hard to hear the protestors, so I couldn't make out any kind of apology. I think the husband is a good and decent man who was having his own emotional response to the situation. The protestors seem to think that women who choose an abortion do so on a whim or because they "feel like it" or some such nonsense. I've never met a woman yet who chose an abortion casually. The protestors just aggravated an emotional situation.

That could be too. I am more of the opinion that it's the other way around however. I have encountered waaaaaaayyyy too many otherwise intelligent people who become stupid when their religion is involved.

You'll get no argument from me on that, Karen.

There was nothing respectful in that post. The silliness would be yours if you weren't so relentlessly unfeeling about it. Your emotional language is chosen for its inflammatory meaning. A fetus is not a "helpless and innocent child" and abortion is not "murder."

Astrocat says:
Christopher, the use of the word "murder" is inflammatory and completely false when used in this context. The fetus is not a human being until it is born and takes its first breath. Abortion is, in no way, "murder".

It's a funny thing that Haynes doesn't understand the difference between abortion and infanticide. If he weren't so pathetic, he would kind of be a goof.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 9, 2013 1:24:13 PM PST
You noticed that the case that Haynes is citing is about this quack having induced labor and delivered the babies successfully, then having killed them. If true, that's illegal and that's not abortion. You also notice that Haynes never responds to someone directly.

He knows that, he uses that word just to be a jerk.

"He knows that, he uses that word just to be a jerk."

And he's so good at it. Folks, don't let the vile Haynes upset you. He thinks his creationist/hillbilly schtick is a fine way to show contempt for science and any other form of intellectual pursuit.
I wonder if he bothered to read what was the situation in this case. Or does he even care?

I doubt that he read it; he doesn't care about anything besides spewing his ignorance, spite, and hate.

a possible human is NOT a human
and nobody has any right forcing their dummazz opinions about it on us

removing unwanted parasitic cells is a right the female has
and your wacko religion is irrelevant

CH: Us Creationists, we know the difference.
here it is:
- Infanticide is murdering a child AFTER its born
- Abortion is murdering a child BEFORE its born.
Duh!

RRR: Close. A murder is still an unlawful killing. Abortion is still lawful, so your hick hillbilly Texas creationist shtick is wrong, as usual.

CH: Anyhow, poor Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the prominent amd respected Philadelphia Abortion Specialist.
He's on trial for murder, for snipping the spines of babies AFTER they was born.
Hundreds of them.
He faces the death penalty

RRR: Wrong. He's on trial for the alleged killing of 7 delivered babies, NOT "Hundreds of them." Infanticide is illegal. Abortion isn't.

CH: If he had done it 10 minutes earlier, our Atheist friends would of said "no problemo".
Cause the unborn baby "is not a human being".
Okey dokey

RRR: Straw man. No one has said this. The AMA has strict guidelines regard late term abortions.

CH: But most respectfully, we call your bluff.
Define a human being, scientifically
Such that the unborn baby isnt a human being, but 10 minutes later when its born, it is a human being.

RRR: Still not respectful, so you're lying. I'll call YOUR bluff. Exactly WHO said that "unborn baby isnt [sic] a human being, but 10 minutes later when its born, it is a human being"?
