Sister Margaret McBride was excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church after she assented to an abortion involving a mother of four who might have died if she continued the pregnancy.
How is the Nun's decision not the obviously correct one to anyone of any belief? They think she should just let both the mother and fetus die? They really believe that?
<span><p>Religions (ironically) follow evolutionary algorithms. Successful religions control reproduction either by encouraging lots of children or by banning contraception. It's really no surprise religions are obsessed with sex. </p></span>
There's no reason for a woman to give priority to anything or anyone inside of her -- ever.
Looks like somebody's been reading the New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia's article on abortion. Note the preposterous idea that a fetus and a mother have equal right to the mother's body.Quote from the article: "The embryonic child, as seen above, has a human soul; and therefore is a man from the time of its conception; therefore it has an equal right to its life with its mother; therefore neither the mother, nor medical practitioner, nor any human being whatever can lawfully take that life away. The State cannot give such right to the physician; for it has not itself the right to put an innocent person to death. No matter how desirable it might seem to be at times to save the life of the mother, common sense teaches and all nations accept the maxim, that "evil is never to be done that good may come of it"; or, which is the same thing, that "a good end cannot justify a bad means". Now it is an evil means to destroy the life of an innocent child. The plea cannot be made that the child is an unjust aggressor. It is simply where nature and its own parents have put it. Therefore, Natural Law forbids any attempt at destroying fetal live."
Stone the bitch.
Stone the bitch for daring to respect a life.
Disregarding the stupidity of thinking fetus = human being...So if conjoined twins are dying, the church's position is that if you can save one of them or neither of them the answer is always neither? (because in their retarded logic by saving the one you are murdering the other)I would hate to know what they would do when faced with a real ethical dilemma...
You touch the worldly affairs with the glove of religion and, if you are a man of logic - you go nuts at the very first moment.Nothing, and I mean - nothing, can be explain logically when you apply the religious aspect to it.
"<span>The embryonic child, as seen above, has a human soul; and therefore is a man from the time of its conception;</span>"Oh, that's the problem. The fetus was male. Unless of course, all embryonic children are 'men'.What a culture of life.
Truth is all embryonic children are female, therefore a man was not killed. This topic is now over
