Operation Rescue is a perfect example of perverted Christian views that twist the bible to say what it doesn't and work on people's emotions with scriptural and medical lies. The cardinal of Philadelphia has condemned its work.

However I applaud what Operation is Rescue is actually doing for people that are undecided. Their fanaticism and self-righteous circus has done more for the Pro-Choice position since many see Operation Rescue as the emotional fanatics they are.

What is particularly disturbing to me is the Christians insistence on lack of religious freedom. They want all the freedom for choosing what is right for everyone else. Yet consider the Jewish women. Jewish law is not Pro-Choice. It REQUIRES an abortion if the women's health (mental or physical) is in question.

What right to Christians have to interfere with the rights of Jewish, or any other women's whose belief is different from yours. This is about CHOICE folks the American Freedom of Religion and Privacy in personal decisions.

It is clearly not about killing or murder. "Thou shalt not kill" applies to persons.There's no such command against killing plants, animals, tumors, germs, etc. What distinguishes humans from other animals is the developed outer layers of the human brain "gray matter" which is the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex is the seat of human emotions, perceptions, sensations and all other traits we consider uniquely human. At the start of the 3rd trimester, the fetus has a reasonable chance of survival outside the womb. It is also at this point the cerebral cortex starts to function.

In the first trimester when 90% of all abortions are performed, their is no functioning of the cerebral cortex clearly nothing that distinguishes it as human. The only nero function is nothing more than very primitive brain stem activity which control autonomic responses. The cerebral 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.

So much for the lies about killing in the Bible having anything to do with abortion. While the Bible does give examples of lots of abortions, it no where suggests it is wrong and clearly aborting a first trimester embryo has absolutely nothing to do with the Biblical condemnation of "murder"

For further medical facts I suggest "Facts of Life: Science and the Abortion Controversy" by Harold J. Morowitx and James S. Trefil.
