  •  But the bible doesn't forbid abortion (0+ / 0-)

    It's just opportunistic church leaders reading their own politics into the bible that forbid abortion.

    (And historically the AMA because they wanted to reduce the cultural and market power of midwives as the new profession of gynecology was emerging in the 19th century).

    Prior to that abortion wasn't illegal.  At least not in the US.

    The history of the interests behind each of these so-called "moral" pronouncements is quite fascinating, actually.  Yet more evidence that "morality" is a distinctly human activity that involves a whole lot of power struggles over things that aren't necessarily about morality or life.  

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
