This board is for the discussion/debate about personal reproductive choices and the abortion issue. Of course one's personal belief system or religion will probably influence that person's views on this topic, and it is fine to say so in a post. However, when someone uses scripture and their interpretation of it as some sort of proof that their view is correct, that crosses the line and the thread then becomes a vehicle for debate about religion or scripture and not abortion. There are several faith boards for the discussion of different religions, please keep this board limited to the discussion of abortion.

Also, there are boards for politics, euthanasia, right to life, and animal rights. Please use the appropriate board if you wish to discuss those topics. Finally, the only terms allowed in the description of positions for this board are Pro-Life and Pro-Choice.

I want to take this opportunity to address another issue that is problematic on this board. If you haven't already, please google Godwin's Law. Actually, in serious debates, the comparison of anything to Hitler, Nazis, or the Holocaust is pretty much an admission of concession as there is nothing else to say, but that is not the reason that that kind of language is prohibited here. The reason is, that by comparing anything to the Holocaust, Hitler, or Nazis, one is basically insulting a whole group of people (the Jews), because nothing can ever be as horrific as that was, and by saying there is a comparison belittles that fact. So just know that if the words *Hitler*, *Nazis*,  the *Holocaust*, or the *Final Solution* are used in a post, that post will be removed.
