The key question in the abortion issue is “When does life begin?”. Given that most natural miscarriages occur within the first 3 months, it might stand to reason that life begins after 3 months. What might that mean? It might be construed to mean that the 3+ month old baby has the right of consent. That being the case, it would legally be murder for anyone to terminate the babys life without its consent. And that is where the state should come in.
Clearly, there is a difference between the legal definition of life (wherein the state has a duty to step in) and the religious definition of life (wherein the parents have a moral obligation to nurture).
So the question becomes, WHY CANT THESE STUPID PEOPLE MAKE A DECISION TO ABORT OR NOT WITHIN 3 MONTHS. THERE IS SIMPLY NO EXCUSE.
