  •  It is hugely significant to remember that (3+ / 0-)

    people like Ryan and Mourdoch do not consider the well being of the fetus during pregnancy, not only since there may be no prenatal care, but because of the chemicals produced by a person who is deeply emotionally stressed and often clinically depressed, reaching the fetus through the placenta.

    Ignoring the needs of the mther is exactly the same thing as ignoring the needs of the child

    Nor do the same types of "believers" ever, even for a nano second, consider the well being of the pregnant woman who bears the financial and emotional burden of the unwanted pregnancy and the changes that make in her financial and professional and marital future for the 20 some years she will be having to support that unwanted child.

    And they never ever, consider the well being of the child once it is born.  For the personhood folks, they stop caring once the ova becomes diploid.  Even though through God's plan most will never survive to the level of fetus.

    All of this weight of negligence on their part is proof positive that the righteousness of their position is purely political.

    It certainly bears not resemblance to the words and teachings of Christ.

    Consider the acts of the Good Samaritan who not only helped the beaten man to his feet, but took him to a near by inn for "medical" care, paid the inn keeper, and promised that on his return trip he would cover the costs on any additional care the victim needed.

    That is what the God of Christ tells us is our responsibility to those who have been harmed and are wounded and in need.

    Why in the hell the pathetic Dims don't say that is beyond me but all the rest of us should have it tattooed on our foreheads for the Reporape supporters to see every time they step out the door of their house.
