Only a selfish, unmerciful person would kill the baby to save oneself.
And the child's daddy should have no say in the loss of his wife?
Speaking as a Christian husband, my wife's wishes are subordinate to mine; and had you been a "true Christian" you would have known that.
*****Yes, the husband has the final say, but if he were a "real Christian," he would agree that the baby should be saved, right? So I assumed that both he and the wife would be in agreement on that.
Therefore; if my wife's life is to be lost in bringing a child of ours into the world, then I decree that the child die and not my wife because for one: I think it's cruel to bring a child into the world without its mommy: or what the hell's the use in getting a wife pregnant in the first place if she's not to be a mom?
*****Or, what the hell's the use in getting her pregnant if you're going to kill the baby? And I think if you'd ask that child later on in life (if you allowed it to live) if he regrets being alive because he has no mommy, he would say that he did NOT regret being alive. After all, he would have a loving FATHER to take care of him! (Right, Dad?)
And two: I am not about to sacrifice the love of my life to save the life of a total stranger. As long as she's alive we can try for another baby; but if she's dead; we can't. My God you are so callous and insensitive!
*****YOU are the one who is callous and insensitive! Good God! "A total stranger" you say.
Wives are not baby mills; they are first and foremost somebody's home companion (Gen 2:18). I didn't marry my best girl expecting her to pump out babies for me; no, I married her because I didn't want to spend the rest of my life alone and unloved in the world and now you're content to take her away from me? I just wish I was at liberty on Beliefnet to use the appropriate expletives to express exactly what I think of the likes of you and your anti Christian-home attitude.
*****I wish I could, also, call you what I think of you.
This thread is being moved to the Abortion Debate board-it has deviated from a "pure" discussion of Christianity
Well; since I have no more clue what constitutes Dave's definition of an impure discussion of Christianity than a Russian poisoned by cheap vodka tainted with fall-out from Chernobyl, I'm off this thread.
