I think if the mother's life is in direct danger you do your best to save both the baby and the mother, yeah? Just as if the baby was far along. My friends just recently had a baby born like 20 weeks early (the baby was not getting the nutrients it needed and was going to die otherwise), and it was a hard, hard thing but now she is home and they adore her. Modern medicine is such that we have a better chance than ever at saving both lives. Believe me, if my wife was pregnant and in danger I would be the first to want everything possible to keep her healthy. I don't think these days that means exclusively killing the child anymore. Maybe in super rare cases? I don't know, not a doctor. Perhaps will go research it some more, those are just initial thoughts. It seems most arguing for pro-choice are not in a position of danger, so much as desire. And frankly it would not be difficult to write a law that explicitly states abortion is acceptable as a last resort by professional doctors, yeah? Generally we're talking/arguing about abortion as a contraceptive effort. That's what the marches and things are about, not danger. "Danger to the mother" is the last ditch effort folks will argue if backed into a corner by being shown the hard science that a human begins at fertilization.I do think it should be allowed in the rare cases where the mother's life is in danger (tubular pregnancy) or in the event of incest or rape (though it would be more honorable to let the baby live).
Yeah, like so many things Christianity comes in a huge variety of favors and prettymuch any viewpoint you can imagine is sure to be found somewhere. So in that sense, yeah I agree that the one thing they all have in common is a discipleship of Jesus.Of course. I know more than a few Christians who are pro-choice. Whether or not they fit in with your particular brand of Christianity might be up for debate. But there are thousands of different brands, from LGBT affirming liberal brands to the folks who think it’s a sin for women to wear blue jeans.
Now, if you’re asking if they can be “saved” (to use a more evangelical term), I guess that depends on your church too. The way I see it, the only real unifying belief that Christians have is they all worship Jesus.
