I'm not projecting anything on you. I asked a simple question. If you'd reply properly in the first place instead of being so combative I wouldn't have to use a crowbar to pry an honest answer out of you.
I'm not stuck on the word "murder," I mean KILLING A HUMAN BEING in a formative stage, and murder is the usual term for ending a human life; and I clearly said in a recent post that I put the mother's life above the child's. I'm also not stuck on "human being" I've said many times I'm talking about the inevitability of its becoming a human being so that if you kiil it you are ending a human life.
Thanks. We're actually on the same page about abortion but it might help if you used words correctly instead of right-wing rhetoric.
There may be an early stage of purely physical formation before the soul is infused by God. Nobody knows that.
The Levites had an app for that:
quote:Exodus 21:20-22 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money. If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
"In God's eyes" the unborn child seems to be treated as the father's property.
