Bobby, thankfully we do not have to make mistakes and incur the wrath of God on judgement day. Instead all we have to do is obey his commandments and trust that he will supply us with abundant grace to cope with having the problems we have. If we try to avoid having a cross in life, God will deal with us. Those who accept their lot will cover a multitude of sins. Please do not promote murder or any kind of eugenics, unless you wish to be regarded as a Nazi.

Democracy, liberalism, freedom is a failed system since it refuses to protect minorities from the majority. Instead it enforces systematic abuses of rights of minorities such as babies in the womb. It therefore promotes Nazi style eradication of differences in the guise of 'freedom' (which is really freedom of the strong exerting power over the weak.) The weak have no rights under democracy.

Ask the opinion of thousands of live children who were almost aborted and see what they say. A neighbour of ours had a scan done and was told that her child had a large growth on it's head and would be a vegetable if it survived. They suggested her to have an abortion. She almost went through with it but the church prayed and she went through the pregnancy and delivered a perfectly healthy son without a growth. She trembles now just thinking that she almost sent her son to the garbage can.

Not all dire predictions on outcome are fulfilled - many healthy children are born to parents who were told by doctors that their child would be deformed or otherwise deficient.

Who are we to play God? And when we do, who are we murdering - many great people would have been destroyed in the womb had their mothers aborted. For example Ludwig van Beethoven was born to a mother who had given birth to a series of "defective" or "diseased" children.

And lest you think that a good outcome is dependent upon the perfection or material success of the child, I would also point out that I have seen so-called defective people defy the odds and provide an excellent example through working within their own limitations. Jesus appears to us in many ways and how we deal with Him when not in His full glory says a lot about ourselves - Matthew 25:40.

No situation is ever easy again it comes down to your love for the unborn regardless, and sometimes the situation is not as Good as we may have thought But I believe God knows the heart of that individual and it is not wrong to think you made a mistake, it is wrong to have condemned the child and not giving it that chance for life. greater love is this that a man should lay down his life for a friend/what say's your own child?

My wife was a special ed teacher and dealt with mentally handicap children of all ages. Interesting enough every parent of nearly all these children stated that if they had to do it all over again, they would have had an abortion.

Mentally deformed or handicapped children can really wreak a marriage and eat up needed resources for other children in the family.

Regardless of the sanctity of life, we need not adopt a Hinduistic view of life where even the lowest types of life are valued.

Personally I do not believe it is my right to decide who lives or dies. That would be God's decision. I do not believe abortion is right for any reason. That is my choice. I do not believe it is an unforgivable sin either. All life is precious and should be viewed as such. I will leave life and death in God's hands where it belongs. Dana9769

I say no I am against abortion but sadly our laws no longer are at least up to a point. I think every person should have a chance to live because we all effect each other in so many ways, one life does touch another. But I do believe if a woman has had an abortion and is sorry, repents and comes to Christ we must forgive her and not push her sin in front of her face and help her to heal emotionally, physically and spiritually. We are our "brothers in this case sisters" keepers.

I was pregnant. I was not married. My child would have had a very hard life, I know that. But I loved him. Never would I have considered killing him. God took him from me. I was devastated. I never got to hear my baby cry. You would go through this voluntarily? God have mercy on you!

I have know a few couples who experienced this kind of situation. All of them chose to bring their child into the world. All the children are alive today, some with minor deformities. But, God forbid that any of us have to make this kind of decision. Abortion mills should be banned. Personal decisions like this should be between the couple and the Lord.

That's the same attitude the Nazis had. And now some doctors in UK are saying it shouldn't be limited to before birth, either.

I developed gout, diabetes, hypertension, and clinical depression as result of an abusive childhood. Are you saying I should have been aborted, or been a victim of infanticide?

What you're saying, MB is that only "perfect" people have a right to live.

Be honest--are you so perfect yourself?

What part of "Thou shalt not kill" don't you understand?

I was going to abort my son, with much prayer and support I didn't. He is disabled and I love him the more. God has given me a special love for him. I am so glad that I didn't abort him.

You mean murder the unborn child.

Oh my. What a difficult question. Having lived that issue makes it still difficult. I do know we must do what it takes to survive. We have a great deal of responsibility to the living as well as to those to come. God is the only one who can lead on that issue: Not the support groups or the easychair judges who don't have specific person's life to deal with. Prayer with God, church, family.

The question is who's wisdom is more valuable man's or God's? If we say we have wisdom how far does that take us? All the way to determining that life is an accident or there is no God?

Eternity has a design of praise for children who cannot "be normal." Their disability is an ability you and I have to work for; they appreciate life for what it is, and are often not stained by their own intellectual pride.

How much better if you had the baby in faith, and let God sort out details.
