Coldstream won't back up his statement that 99% of abortions are elective. I know why, he's wrong. It's closer to 90%. Way too high, IMO, but then this thread is about Tiller and his reasons, not the general early term reasons. I bet coldstream won't back up his commetn about those abortions performed by Tiller because he knows he's wrong.
Either way, killing Tiller is just as wrong as killing fetuses. Defending the person who killed Tiller is just as morally bankrupt.
At most the LIFE of the mother is endangered by the pregnancy in 1% of the cases, and it is likely much less than that. The figures are skewed by the abortion lobby to show health reasons as a major cause, but essentially the abortion industry and doctors will concoct a medical reason for abortion, often for 'psychological' reasons which is utter nonsense, knowing what we know now of the grave psychological distress, depression and guilt suffered by the mother.. and the serious and life threatening physical health implications of an abortion. The option of removing the child by C section into premature infant care can see an infant survive at something 5 months now. This really reduces the necessity of abortion to almost zero.
If you'd read my original post, you would have seen i condemned the killing of Dr. Tiller as both antithetical and counterproductive to the pro life movement.
As for your recurrent comments that this is just 'my opinion'.. that is very exemplary of the condition of our society. We have lost all sense of right and wrong, of natural law, of an understandable moral universe. We now have a purely relativistic concept of 'opinions', each with no more value than any other, all competing in market place without transcendant moral parameters. It's chaotic. It shows everywhere, in abortions, in homosexual affirmation and celebration and many other things. We are sewing a Culture of Death, and we will reap what we sew
The entire ethical and moral foundation of our society has been turned on its head in the last 30 years. That is the substance of any culture. Without that nurturing soil it will whither of the vine. We are quickly entering a period of economic and social decline, which will have the most profound and distressing effect on all your lives.
