I don't see any hypocrisy in being anti abortion and pro death penalty.
I figure if G_D things that a fetus is worthy of life we probably shouldn't interfere with that process

AND

if somebody decides to kidnap, rape and murder a little girl he probably doesn't deserve to share oxygen with the rest of us

That being said, you have to be a moron to be offended by a child breastfeeding

Apparently Hitler, Stalin, and your neighborhood thug were also worthy of life.
Should we interfere with antibiotics, stents, or CPR if you get sick?
Should we allow a person to decline life-saving medical care?
What does G_D want--and who is allowed to interpret that?

No, but we only know after the fact and only then can we correct the mistake.

Yes.* Not sure why we need to force someone to have expensive medical care if they don't want it (assuming they are fully competent to make that decision).

Not 100% sure, but I'd guess that killing children before they are born probably isn't something he's in favor of

Just a hunch

Well if you believe that God told Bush Jr. to Invade Iraq, then you think it's probably OK with him to kill Children after they are born. Maybe just Muslim children heh!

I have never heard a pregnant woman refer to the child she was carrying as "an embryo." Unless she wanted to kill it.

I did--and I have two kids. That I nursed for two years. Friends called their fetus "fee." Don't assume

Seems to me that someone needs to post a pic of some bazoombas with a pancake on top of them, to get this discussion back on track.
