Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

 


God who kills billions of babies every decade through miscarriages is the biggest abortionist of all!

Christians say abortion at any stage is murder for the baby is a human being or person from conception. 

Now if this is true then you can say if there is a God with whom nothing is impossible then in some way - even if we cannot find the words - then the fertilised egg is a person.  Indeed if there is a God or supernatural then we have to accept that possibility. Anyway, the Christians say it is more than just murder to kill the unborn at any stage.  It is attacking the most innocent and vulnerable and dependent form of human life.  This means that the earlier the baby, the less developed it is, and thus the more vulnerable it is.  So it must be more evil to kill an unborn child at 9 weeks than 12.  Or worse to kill at 12 rather than 18. In what sense though?  In the sense that murder is more vile and evil when it targets something so innocent and vulnerable so the more dependent it is the more evil it is to destroy that life.

Such a teaching attacks pro-choice people who insist that the unborn child at a certain stage must have protections.  It is nothing more than an encouragement to late abortion.

How can something that is barely visible be counted a human life with as much value as a newborn baby?  The only possible answer is if God give the zygote a fully developed soul that the body is growing to match.  If God does that then it implies the life must be protected and nurtured even if reluctantly.  That answer may be unspoken but it is there when anybody says unborn life at all stage is sacred and must not be killed and must be described as innocent life and not seen as some kind of aggressor to be slain if the mother does not want it and considers it an invader.  An aggressor may not mean to be such as when an insane person attacks you.  It does not matter.  Aggressor is aggressor. Nature makes everything a potential aggressor which is why abortion rights are self-defence at the end of the day.

It is obvious that those who accept abortion on demand - most do for the early stages of pregnancy - are saying that they don't believe God gives this life and thus to end it defies him.  Or they are saying he does ensoul the person at conception and thus we should think that a person is a person no matter how primitive their development and even if they are a centimetre long but they do not care.

However you can argue for abortion on the basis that, whether unborn life is sacred or not, God is aborting the life of the unborn through us his instruments through all nine months.  Who ultimately created the science and the pills for medical abortion and the techniques for surgical abortion?  You cannot be blamed or condemned by believers if that is your logic for it is understandable and if it is wrong it is hard to see how it could be.  They owe you permission.  Everybody who believes in God is forced at times to make assumptions about what God wants and so the believer in God has to say to you, "I assume abortion is always wrong.  But I permit you and encourage you to assume abortion should, if possible, become no more serious than cleaning your teeth.  We have to guess what God wants."  They cannot deny it is a reasonable position to assume that God wants abortion or it does not matter for he has his own way of caring for the aborted child.

God is the biggest abortionist of all for most babies are aborted naturally in the womb. We think of natural as that which has no intervention. But intervention is natural so abortion in a clinic by modern medicine is made possible by nature and is natural. If you believe in God then whether you realise it or not you are endorsing abortion as a gift of God.  You are saying, "If you intend to abort go ahead." You try to take responsibility so its the same as if you are commanding or getting God to do it.  God being responsible does not keep you out of the picture. It puts you in as regards your intention. That you are not doing the aborting is not the point. You are saying to God you would do the same as him if you were God for he is so perfect.  You hypocritically worship an abortionist and the father of abortionists.  God is creator which means no sin or person or thing exists without his support and his giving it existence.  He is truly an abortionist.  He aborts us all - though he waits until some of us are old before he strikes.

If God exists he is the biggest abortionist of all for most babies or "babies" are lost naturally by miscarriage and the mother usually does not know. And he asks people not to judge him for it which amounts to saying, "Be a smug smart arse and judge the babies to have been treated correctly but do not judge me. Do not worry about the babies but me."  If God is a man-made idea then there are no words to describe how terrible it is to worship him.  To worship God is to be an abortionist by proxy.  In a sense you are what you worship.

 Why is it good or okay for nature to abort billions of babies currently in the womb and why is it wrong for doctors to perform safe abortions that deal with an early baby that cannot be hurt? Religion answers is that nature is what it is. Please see how callous that answer is.  You are the one saying it should happen as long as no moral agent is doing it.  You are showing what kind of person you are.  You are the agent agreeing it should happen. So is not all about a mechanical random event. Also, the point is that if life begins at conception, abortion is evil for it takes a life and the point is that life is lost not that anybody is responsible. We care that it happens not what does it. If abortion is an evil, or a necessary evil you cannot just say that. You have to prove it. To say God aborts babies for some purpose is just dismissive. Serious matters need serious evidence.  If abortion just happens maybe us making it happen is not really us but some programming?  Maybe whether a doctor aborts or nature one is as much down to forces and not free will as the other.

The Christian God is love and as communication is a mark of love and a part of love then he shows himself in his creation.  So the sun will rise tomorrow?  We see that as a law of nature - as something mechanical.  But what if we see it not as that but as a loving God going to give us the gift of the run rising tomorrow?  God communicates a promise to us.  The bread he gives you that you put in the larder is his promise to feed you.  What if you die before teatime?  He promised to feed you but only as long as you are alive so that is not a problem.  Why are we saying all this?  Because an all knowing God would know why people would look at the incredible number of miscarriages and take it as a message that abortion is acceptable.  He still set up things to give that message so if he exists its intentional.

God cannot blame anybody for reasoning, "If our own cells could just grow into people inside it is obvious that it is our body and we can kill them or go to a doctor to terminate them."  Therefore if abortion is evil then God is evil. 

Catholics who claim to be pro-life have as many abortions as any other group.  Religion is no solution if abortion is immoral.

If faith in God is a placebo and if Christian religion is opiate trying to fight abortion with them is stupid and self-defeating.  If religion is pro-violence in its scriptures and sows violent seeds what would you expect?  Its vision of God is of one who considers violence bad but who uses it as a tool.  That is more dangerous than the notion of violence being good for its more influential and corrupting! 

Today there is a massive rise in pro-choice Christians who say the Bible teaches life begins at first breath so abortion is not a sin or murder.  It is a purely religious idea.  God breathes the first breath in turning the baby into a person.  A secularist or scientist would not accept such nonsense or even consider it for there is more to a baby being alive than taking its first breath.  The Christian's position is hypocritical for we can be sure they would consider anybody who murdered their unborn baby a day before it was born to be a genuine murderer.  That people so easily use an interpretation of what they see as God's word to successfully advocate for abortion beyond anything the pro-choice secularist would stomach or tolerate is disturbing.  It shows the power of faith in holy books and how it easily takes away a sense of responsibility for taking an innocent vulnerable life.  Even an interpretation that is suspect has such grave power.  As for the Christians then what next?

Christians have zero right to assert that God forbids abortion and does not do abortions.  Even if God has said that we don't know for a fact that he said it and no person can have the right to speak for God.   The furthest one can go is to say, "I'm told God said it."  Real respect for unborn life avoids such tactical and immature justifications for being pro-life.
