Personally, I don't think the Bible has any place in the debate, but I found this article interesting. Thoughts?

I think religion is the only reason there IS a debate.

While I agree that the basic urge some people have to try to control other people is often clothed in religion, I suspect it would continue even if religion were stripped away.

I agree. I am pro-life because children are a God-given blessing, a source of happiness, a reward and a heritage from God.

“The fruit of the womb is reward” (Psalm 127:3)

Possibly. However I believe that the non-religious pro-life types are MORE interested in unwanted pregnancy preventative education and spend MORE time with that rather than debating abortion.

"...children are a God-given blessing, a source of happiness, a reward and a heritage from God."

This is only an opinion and has no bearing on my reprodcutive rights as a woman.

Children are a result of biology and not a fictitious character from a book.

Who's to say they weren't a source of happiness (as children) to their parents before becoming totally worthless, disgusting and despicable adults?

They're only a blessing if you WANT them.

Not true. All children are blessings. Just because one person may not see their own child as a blessing doesn't mean that a couple wishing to adopt a child does not see that same child as a blessing.

Wrong. That is YOUR OPINION.
