opulate asked: Hypothetical question: If I had some sort of organ failure right now and for some reason you were the only person who could be a donor for me without me dying, should you be legally obligated to donate one of your organs to me?
I see where you’re going with this…
No, because it’s without my consent.
“Well then why does a baby get to be in my body without my consent?”
You gave your consent when you had sex. Sexual intercourse brings about a new life. An egg plus a sperm create a new organism.
And please don’t use the rape argument; it is responsible for fewer than 5% of abortions (according to the Guttmacher Institute, I believe).
I hope this makes our stance a little clearer for you. God bless!
sublimelywicked asked: Don't quote women who feel regret and sadness to support your argument. People like you only make those feelings worse. You might not think of it like that, because you haven't experienced it. The decision is deplorable to you but none who've made it gloat or act delighted. You pour salt into the wound with strong judgement. Shouldn't you try and console them? They have sinned in your eyes but isn't the basic remnant of faith forgiveness.
I don’t at all mean to pour salt ino an open wound, and I do try to make a point of only using testimonies that say they hope they can help someone with their story or something like that.
If anyone ever came to me feeling sorry about their abortion, of course my first intention would be to help them. I would never have an “I told oh so” attitude, if that’s what you were thinking.
I also don’t believe most of these women have intentionally sinned by doing this. Many do not understand it is a human being, and some are even forced into it. I do not judge those who have had abortions; my primary goal is to try to stop them before they happen (not by force, but through explanation).
I am sorry if this seemed calloused or cruel to you, and I do try to be polite to those opposing me. Sometimes it gets really hard and they get really rude and I’m already really stressed, so it comes of as curt or impolite.
Thank you for your input; I’ll try not to answer questions when I’m stressed :)
glacialsupremacy asked: So why exactly do Christians believe homosexuality is wrong? The bible? Leviticus? Does that also mean that all Christians follow all the other bans in the Bible like: shaving, gossiping, haircuts, associating with women on their periods, eating lobster/pork, and wearing cotton/polyster blends? You can't just pick and chose whatever suits you, if you're going to believe something written in an ancient book you might as well believe the entire thing.
I’ll direct you as I have everyone else with this question to the FAQ page of my blog littlechristianthings. There’s a link there to a really good site. Also a ways back I had a post about it that answered a lot of common questions…I think on that theme though you can’t search tags :P Sorry.
But yeah the link there takes you to a Catholic site that explains why we believe it’s wrong and addresses what you’re talking about.
abittersweetdesign-deactivated2 asked: The fact that people don't understand the flawed logic of "Against abortion? Don't have one!" is just sick. I don't see how they couldn't get your point, it's blatantly obvious. Thank you for running this blog!
Thanks :) They think abortion is just some religious issue or an attempt to control women, not the killing of a person. If we tried to…stop people from buying carrots, they would say the same thing. “Don’t like carrots? Don’t buy them!” They don’t realize how wrong abortion is.
God bless you!
wildflowerh-deactivated20130504 asked: Just wanted to point out that it's not space that's the problem when it comes to overpopulation, it's resources. There will not be enough food and fresh drinking water for everyone on the planet if the population keeps getting larger. So hopefully less people will have babies.
The reason people are starving is not a lack of resources; it’s redistribution. Think of how much food we waste every day! We can get a full meal at McDonald’s for a couple bucks. Look at how many people are obese here (in America) while people on the other side of the world are starving. We just got a magazine (foodforthepoor) where for $10 you could buy a fruit tree to help a starving family. We could get 100 of those just for the cost of an $1000 laptop! On that website, $44 dollars feeds a child for a year. Think of how many children we could feed if we learned to live without all those luxuries.
God has provided us with much more than enough for everyone; we’re just taking more than our share.
lordcornbread asked: About that post about gay rights and abortion: What are your opinions on whether or not people are born gay? I agree they aren't, but I don't know why.
I’ve seen articles about how childhood experiences can be a big factor in it, and I’ve seen a lot of stories where someone thought they were gay and just went through a phase like that. I also have seen people that said they were gay because they want to be different and thrive on controversy and the shock factor.
Catholic answers forums have some interesting discussions on this.
This link provides one explanation. To add to this woman’s examples, my cousin who is a lesbian became one after she was made fun of severely all through school.
Let me say again that even if some people are born gay, that doesn’t make homosexual actions okay.
Hope those help. God bless!

Thanks :D Followed! God bless you too!
flutterjedi asked: Speaking of overpopulation, my dad told me that one of his professors in college gave them a demonstration. They took the number of people on the planet(greater now, but not so much that it would change the point), calculated the area of an average person, and learned that you could fit the entire population of the earth into a few miles of the Grand Canyon. Overpopulation isn't a problem. :) Hope this is useful information for you!
That’s really interesting! Thanks a lot :D
God bless you!
sugarcoater asked: Love you blog, keep up the good news! I have a friend who is a nurse that works in the abortion ward and every tuesday there are five girls having abortions and the list of the girls names my friend reads and prays that they don't come in for their appointment. The sad, ironic thing is that the abortion ward is right next to the other ward where women come in that will/had miscarriages. So in one room the women are volunteering to rid of their child and in another, they are mourning the loss.
That’s so sad…I feel for your friend! It must be such a sad place to work.
God bless you!
pro-life-for-all asked: Hey I just started a pro-life blog because I felt like there weren't enough on here. Your blog is fabulous. Keep up the good work!
Thanks :D you too!
I agree! We need more pro-life blogs on here.
