THE MEDICAL FACTS
It is nothing more than an emotionally charged lie to consider first trimester fetal
tissue as a baby. The Anti-women's choice fanatics spread lies of horror with such
movies as the Silent Scream. Some argue the presence of brain waves in early gestation.
But these "waves" are nothing more than very primitive brain stem activity
which control autonomic responses. The cerebro cortex doesn't start to function
until about the same time as the outer edge of viability - 20 to 22 weeks, long
after most abortions are done. What is the significance of a beating heart without
a brain? A scientist can make a heart beat in a petri dish. 50% of abortions are
by 8 weeks gestation, 90% by the end of the first trimester (12 weeks). Only 1%
are performed after 20 weeks, usually to save the women's life.
Most abortions are done when the embryo is not even a fetus. But even a fetus is
clearly part of the women until it has natural viability via natural childbirth
(not advanced medical procedures). The fetus breathes through the women's lungs,
just like every other cell in the women's body. It's homeostasis is regulated by
the women's kidneys and liver, just like every other cell. The glucose supplied
to the fetus is digested by the women's GI tract, etc, etc, it is simply tissue
part of the women medically.
God allows 50-75% of all conceptions to die. Its a fact of nature the fertilized
egg is very disposable. God also gives man the ability to control our lives and
nature. I find it hard to believe that God wants us to overrun the earth as we already
have with worldwide famine due to overpopulation. To have unlimited reproduction
is a disaster.
Is a Doctor wrong with interfering with natural death by modern medical techniques
by allowing someone to live many years after God started the process of dying? Preventing
a child from dying helps overpopulate the world. Overpopulation always has led to
disease, famine, war, poverty and crime. Do we help overpopulation by not helping
real live born people? It seems much more reasonable to stop reproduction by early
abortion for those who are select it. "I thought the dead who have died, more
fortunate than the living who are still alive, but better than both is the one who
has not yet been." Eccles 4:2-3
In Biblical times abortion was attempted by dubious herbal abortifacients (pennyroyal,
etc.), as well as women who wrote manuals on abortion. Yet the Bible does not consider
this as an important enough issue to even address. Sticks were also available! Today
safe early abortions seem very biblical.
Ruining young girls and women's lives by forcing an unwanted child against her will
is certainly not loving your neighbor! The claim that a fertilized egg has more
rights than the alive women is one of the most destructive evil things mankind does
to its women. It is also destroying the earth. God has given us ways to prevent
this - medically safe abortions. Forcing women back to back alley abortions is what
