Yes, we need less abortions so we can have more children born into poverty – in an environment of gutting social programs. Yeh, sounds like a great idea.

I believe in less abortion to the extent (it should be limited to those that abuse it, not those that actually need it).. but, in my opinion, with religion aside, if a women was violently rapped I don’t think its right for anyone to judge someone on their choices with what they want to do with their body after that. Would it be fair for the child to find out her father was a rapist? She can always give the child up for adoption, but sometimes that would be hard.
God wouldn’t judge you on that. Every person should do what is right for them and the baby, not someone else. If you disagree with this, that’s ok, but at the end of the day, you’re not in that person’s shoes. I knew someone who went through this at a young age and its sad to hear someone calling her a “baby killer” because they “think” it’s wrong, when really she did the right thing. Why take this away from people? Please, make this limited, not illegal. It wouldn’t make sense.

“God wouldnâ€™t judge you on that.”
You’ve got my curiosity up. Why not? Are we not called to forgive others? Are we not called to “turn the other cheek also?”
I’m not trying to argue but would truly like to hear your point of view. Thanks.

Because everyone has a “personal relationship” with God and the choices they make in life. Why question anything on that? No one has a right to control others. God only knows what is going on their life. We all make mistakes and no one can’t hide from it. I don’t think abortion is a mistake to people who need it. I use to be so against abortion up until I met a few people that got it. I will not judge them on their personal choices they made, because it is not my right and I wasn’t in their shoes either. I’m no longer against abortion, just against those that abuse it and are actually harming themselves and the child.
There are so many horror stories where the teenage parent would try to kill the baby in her stomach.. would throw the baby in the trash in fear of their parents finding out she was pregnant. So many parents are far too strict on their own kids, because of this. Even the father of the baby would either kill his own child too, or neglect them if he was getting irritated with the baby. In the end, its really a lack of communication with the kids and not loving them no matter what the case may be. God loves us no matter what we do in our lives.. its a matter of knowing that and “not turning the other cheek” on people.

Iâ€™m not sure you answered my question. Why would God NOT judge us for having an abortion regardless of how we justify it? We like to remake God to fit into our world instead of the other way around but it doesn’t help us. One way we do that is to apply our own ideas about sin based on our laws of society, which are ever-changing instead of Godâ€™s ideas, which are unchanging.
God is absolute perfection and sin cannot be a part of our relationship with him. For God to accept sin, any sin no matter how insignificant or how justifiable in our own mind, would mean that he would no longer be perfect and therefore he would deny his own perfection and no longer be God. Sort of like how a “little leaven leavens the whole lump.” The judicial system of the United States or the State of Minnesota may be able to exercise leniency but God canâ€™t because exercising leniency introduces imperfection and he canâ€™t do that. Quite the conundrum wouldnâ€™t you say?
I realize this isnâ€™t a popular notion in todayâ€™s society but somehow I doubt God is in a popularity contest. I think itâ€™s a mistake to view God on our human terms and reason that because we allow certain things so will God. He canâ€™t because he demands perfect justice. Fortunately for us there is good news at the foot of the cross. For those willing to surrender to Him, turn away from corruption, and accept the atonement sacrifice, Jesus, who endured the punishment in our place, will intercede on our behalf when we stand in that final judgment.
