Since abstinence also makes it impossible for possible human beings to come into existence?

And let's even widen this:

Let's say I meet a random woman on the street. I could, potentially, make lots of little human beings with her. The fact that I won't have sex with her means that all these potential human beings won't ever come into existence.

Isn't that cruel?

Gosh no,  this is the right board (only board) to discuss he abortion issue.  It is just that frequently when new people come here, they are not aware of the rules cause they do not take the time to read those sticky threads, and then make mistakes when posting. I was just trying to be helpful - and apparently failed. And you, overstepping the rules??  Heavens no.:D

Your argument makes particular sense when people quote "before I formed you in the womb, I knew you".

Yes, it seems so to me too.

It'd be interesting to hear a Christian view on this ...
