Spot on if you ask me. Abortion is sacraficing a fetus's life in order for one to have an easier life. Isn't that the reason for abortion? A person aborts their offspring in order to avoid taking care of it and spending money on it and changing their lifestyle because of it. Abortion is ritualistic in nature. One goes to the priest/shamam (doctor), pledges tribute (pays the medical costs) and then a ceremony is performed that enhances the seekers life by sacrificing their child in a ritual (abortion procedure).The gods of liberalism
Absolutely fascinating: The principal pillars of Baalism were 1) child sacrifice, 2) sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual), and 3) pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator).Wow! Hits the nail right on the head . . .
The sexual immorality condoned and approved by liberals is evident in their mantras of "free love", "if it feels good do it", "love the one your with" and the ever popular "why don't we get drunk and screw"
Want to argue about the deism and pantheism of liberals. Go look at those new age and wicca sites. I can pretty much guarantee you that those aren't conservatives buying all the healing crystals and shakra straighteners.

Again do we have to draw a picture? Burning, crawling, crying babies alive in ritual sacrifices to appease the gods.. or the early termination of a pregnancy of a fetus that by all rational explanation, cannot be defined as a person (except through superstitions of 'imbued souls'). Even remotely similar? No feats of logic can make it so.
By that logic, anything that has a procedure is a 'ritual'.Abortion is ritualistic in nature. One goes to the priest/shamam (doctor), pledges tribute (pays the medical costs) and then a ceremony is performed that enhances the seekers life by sacrificing their child in a ritual (abortion procedure).
Please, illustrate the culture of 'orgies for crops' that is pervasive in a significant political movement today. I am happy to take up cause with those in the left wing in stamping out dogmatic, impractical sexual rules... but that doesn't make me or the left devoid of sexual morality. You are confusing 60's era sexual revolution 'free love' crap with today's platform of complete sex education (ie, b/c + abstinence).... and confusing it even further with religious ritual.The sexual immorality condoned and approved by liberals is evident in their mantras of "free love", "if it feels good do it", "love the one your with" and the ever popular "why don't we get drunk and screw"
And once again, we look back at what the Baalists supposedly did... which were again ritualistic orgies for religious reasons... still no real connection.
There's nothing wrong with pantheism and deism (unless, like theism, you give them more credence than they deserve)..... but the article tries to relate these ideas to the Canaanites. There was nothing pantheistic there at all. The comparison is a sham.What to argeu about the deism and pantheism of liberals. Go look at those new age and wicca sites. I can pretty much guarantee you that those aren't convervatives buying all the healing crystals and shakra straighteners.
Actually if you look more into Baalsm, you'll find there really isnt much if any record of them actually engaging in these practices, except for typical propaganda stories and rumors that many disparate cults and tribes spread around about each other in those days.

What is the rational explanation of most abortions? What purpose do most abortions serve?
Apply the same questions to married monogamous commited sexaul conduct between a man and a woman who wish to spend their lives together?
As for impratical sexual rules.. what is impractical about them. Warning I am baiting you in to a trap so be care with your answer.

Most abortions are for economic reasons. Most recipients are already in abject poverty, and abort out of necessity. Feel free to tell them that they simply cannot have sex till they aren't poor any more... throw as many Bibles at them as you can, I don't expect it to do much good. You'd be better off throwing them packs of condoms and a book on STD's.What is the rational explanation of most abortions? What purpose do most abortions serve?
Pregnancy and disease are the negative outcomes. Both can be easily avoided.I wasn't implying orgies or anything like that, but to give you something to consider think about what the potential negative out comes are for non monogamous, multi partner sex over an extended period of time. I'm not talking about orgies, I'm talking about general everyday casual sex. What are the positive outcomes?
The same.Apply the same questions to married monogamous commited sexaul conduct between a man and a woman who wish to spend their lives together?
They are impractical because you have no hope of significantly changing man's behaviour. You might as well make it your mission to convert the entire world to vegan. The rules become more impractical when you examine them with one another... Christian sexual morals come with its own positive feedback system. The de-emphasis, or outright taboo on B/C will not ensure that there are less out of wedlock pregnancies and STD's... but ensure that more abortions are necessary, or possibly push people into riskier behaviour such as anal sex (saw a recent article on this).As for impratical sexual rules.. what is impractical about them. Warning I baiting you in to a trap so be care with your answer.
So should you... the article wasnt talking so much about crystal gazing loons, but environmentalism. In what way is Baalism of the Canaanites/Phonecians pantheistic/deistic?The point is not whether they are right or wrong but do the go hand in hand with the worship of Baal. Which they do. You really should read more than just stuff that agrees with you view. Hell, watch a couple of episodes of the Naked Archaelogist where he delves in to child sacrifice and Baal worship. Interesting linkages between the person of Jezebel and her ties to child sacrifice.
It is scientifically demonstrable that almost everything that truly makes us a person, an autonomous being, is our cognition... our brain. It is demonstrable that abortion harms nothing, causes no suffering or pain.. unless there are complications for the mother. It is factually demonstrable that abortion violates no ones autonomy/free will. These things are demonstrable with objective scientific facts, not whimsical fancies of some elusive soul entering fetus during conception (where in the nucleus does it hide?). There simply is no use in bothering ourselves over 'beings' that never had an iota of consciousness.
The nation nearly unanimously agrees that late-term babies, are actually babies and that late-term abortions are bad, so we can ignore those circumstances.
Its a mistake to equate 'sexual misconduct' with modern secular sexual ethics.. adultery and irresponsible behaviour is not really part of responsible and safe sex agendas.Wrong again. If you are a virgin and your spouse is one two and you stay true to each other there may be pregnancies but no diseases and no broken families due to sexual misconduct.
Lets see... extreme social shame... no abortions... no morning after pill... discourages contraception... what could possibly go wrong? All those teens you imagine being nice and ashamed and accepting of the consequences for their indiscretions will actually be visiting the shady doctor in the back alley with a coat-hanger instead telling mom and visiting the confessional.We can seem to stop all the murders so why bother. Just because something happens doens't mean we have to condone it because we can't stop it. Social shame for out of wedlock pregnancies. Only medically necessary abortions. No abortions as after the fact contraception, you live and care for the creation of your choices.
I think you are mistaken if you think so. Contraception reduces the number of abortions necessary. Illegality simply compounds the problems. Abortion rates are declining because of more effective contraception.You misunderstand me if you think I feel this can end poor sexual behavior. It can't, but it can reduce the number of occurrences.
