In the news again.....
ABORTION --"the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus; especially : the medical procedure of inducing expulsion of a human fetus to terminate a pregnancy"
FETUS --"In humans, the unborn young from the end of the eighth week after conception to the moment of birth, as distinguished from the earlier embryo"
EMBRYO--"In humans, the prefetal product of conception from implantation through the eighth week of development."
http://www.wprc.org/trimester1.phtml "Years ago, while giving an anesthetic for a ruptured tubal pregnancy (at two months) I was handed what I believed to be the smallest human being ever seen. The embryo sac was intact and transparent. Within the sac was a tiny human male, swimming extremely vigorously in the amnionic fluid, while attached to the wall by the umbilical cord. The tiny human was perfectly developed, with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes. It was almost transparent as regards to the skin, and the delicate arteries and veins were prominent to the ends of the fingers. The baby was extremely alive and did not look at all like the photos and drawings of 'embryos' which I have seen. "- Paul E. Rockwell, M.D.
This is not an easy subject, not an easy choice. Not clearly defined in the Bible, which I believe is God talking to humans. Tough since it is life within life. Tough when children become pregnant. Tough with all circumstances.
Very sad when abortion is used as the only form of birth control.Very sad when having sex has become a physical activity rather then something you treasure and store and ponder and save and only share with one life partner.
My personal belief is that no one should choose abortion.
Emotional scarring and guilt, I believe, outweigh any "benefit" to abortion.
No matter the circumstances, God chose to Bless Humans by giving them children. How sad to miss a Blessing from God.
Our laws don't make sense to me.
A woman can legally abort viable children, but if someone kills a pregnant woman that person is charged with double homicide!
btw: I DO NOT SUPPORT bombing abortion clinics!
