  •  The argument from the annunciation (3+ / 0-)

    is ridiculous.  Because Mary carried Jesus to term, that means God is against all abortions?  How many virgin births and annunciations have their been?  it's too little from which to extrapolate.  In fact, the bible says nothing about abortion.  The golden rule?  could argue it either way.

    Another factor King overlooks is that just as a matter of fact, women are going to get abortions.  So, the risk to the mother's life is from coathangers, not just complications of pregnancy.  Even now, access to safe abortion is curtailed by budget cuts and intimidation by fundies.
