  •  My belief on the bible and abortion is that (7+ / 0-)

    the bible is open to interpretation.  It is not so much that one person would interpret the bible to allow or disallow abortion.  It is more that they would try to rule the will of others with that interpretation of Scripture.

    This is the essence of the word "choice".

      Protestant churches did not see abortion as a sin. Instead, they said that the human soul had not developed and therefore the fetus wasn't considered a human life. If I find the article I'll send it.

      By extension, Mike Huckabee was extolling the virtues of science as the reason why anti choice advocates promote  that life begins at conception. Whoda thunk it?
