Naomi, my point re gun violence was not related to numbers, rather the fact that killing a 6 year old child is a horrific crime (no arguments there) but killing an 8 week child in the womb is somehow acceptable, or somehow not murder. It's just getting rid of cells, etc..
I saw a great pro-life video earlier this year, and 95% of the video came from Obama's gun speech. It was a huge irony, but I really liked it because there is hope that people will start to conclude that murder is WRONG if it's done with "medical equiptment" inside the womb, or a gun outside the womb.
Ahh, I see what you mean.
It is a funny argument isn't it, the whole 'Just a cluster of cells".
I mean, isn't that what I am, what you are, what foetus is?
Well, cells and about 75% water.
Of course, shows a gross misunderstanding of biology. I had to explain to a nurse the other day that an 8 week old foetus was fully formed, with a heart beat at 18 days and brave waves at 4 weeks.
Some people just don't want to acknowledge the truth. It makes them too uncomfortable. I mean, imagine being pro-abortion one day, doing abortions maybe, having an abortion, looking at foetus as some non-human blob, to then going to be pro-life. Millions of dead children who's deaths you supported. That's a hell of a weight on the ole conscience.
I think its a whole ignorance is bliss thing.
Its why I admire the likes of Dr. Bernard Nathanson and Abby Johnson. They did terrible things. Ghoulish things. but they reptented, and while their sin of abortion [many, many abortions] has been wiped clean by Christ, they still have to live with the realisation of what they did.
