    No. Abortion is a neutral.

    This needs to be dumped into the Abortion Forum ASAP... for the same reasons we keep ME stuff in the ME Forum.

    Abortion is not acting upon a sentient or independent life, except for in extreme cases of medically necessary late-term abortion, in which case it is the lesser of two evils.

    Elective abortion is okay before 20 weeks gestation. Abortion is only okay after that in case of a non-viable fetus or a direct and severe threat to the mother's health or life.

    Of course it is.
    But define wrong.
    We humans are humans, not gods, we simply cannot be perfect.
    Every day, an imperfect or wrong act is commited upon a woman; then in response she commits a "wrong" act..
    Until we are all in heaven, if this is the next step, we must accept things as they are.
    And, I do not subscribe to this business of "abortion is murder"....not until man is perfect...

    Let's start a new thread and call it, "Is Wake wrong?"
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Dear Wake,

    The word "right" is very abstract. So I guess it might hold water that the word "wrong" is also abstract.

    Even more abstract are the underlying issues that serves as the boiling pot for abortion, which are; Zygotes, Embryos, and Fetuses.

    Your "poll" is but one more way of framing the question that has created screaming matches in DP over whether or not ZEF's should be allowed to be aborted because of differing perspective on questions like "viability", "personhood", "human", etc.

    The topic is a never ending revolving door. The tug of war between Moralists and Constitutionalists will never go away.

    The S.C. has made a ruling (the law of the land), which lays out the parameters of the abortion do's and dont's. In all likelihood, the standing ruling by the S.C. isn't going to be overturned because it is tied to other important privacy decisions and would strike those down as well.

    Most Churches have voiced their objections.

    Many individuals who have voiced their objections or approvals - have weighed in.

    At this point-in-time, given standing laws. Individual beliefs are even less likely to have enough influence to have Congress to create a Constitutional Amendment that prohibits abortion than to get the S.C. to overturn the standing ruling.

    Question:

    So how do you want to see this thread evolve beyond YES - NO - UNSURE?

    Respectfully Yours,

    RM
