    When was the last abortion clinic bombing?

    The National Abortion Federation Clinic site lists the last bombing as June 2001.

    How about the abortionists themselves?
    This Gosnell guy had a Mothers Day Massacre in 1972, before Roe v Wade where he bussed in 15 girls all more than 3 months pregnant, and inserted an experimental device with plastic razor blades designed to cut the babies up.
    It cut up more than the babies.
    15 babies & 9 women dead or injured.

    Are you implying that this somehow justifies murdering doctors?

    The point is that those who preach the loudest are the first to resort to violence.

    Basic rules for mankind:

    Do not murder.

    If you DO murder then you forfeit your right to life as well.

    While “murdering doctors” is not acceptable, why is it that you will accept murdering children? And no, I am not talking about a fetus in the first trimester but about the babies born breathing and then dispatched by this one individual.

    The big difference is that the belief system of those that bombed the abortion clinics condemn murder, regardless of who is killed. The actions of the abortion clinic bombers are by and large condemned by most Christians and they are not regarded as heros within the Christian community.

    Genesis 9: 5-6

    And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
    6Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man

    Exodus 20: 13

    Thou shalt not kill

    Qur’an 6:151

    “…Take not life, which God has made sacred, except by way of justice and law. Thus does He command you, so that you may learn wisdom”

    Buddhism’s First Precept requires individuals to abstain from injuring or killing any living creature.

    Hindus believe that all life is sacred and are against murder. Murder is considered to be a heinous crime and one which will result in the murderer being reincarnated at a much lower level.

    God’s law is consistent. Man’s “interpretation” is flawed.

    Bible verses don’t mean anything more to me than quotes from popular sit-coms. They only show a sad willingness on the part of people who spew them to relinquish their own responsibility for morality to a book written by dark age ascetics who accepted slavery, racial subjection, torture, and yes: infanticide.

    Religion is the cause of 2 of the 3 issues in the cartoon.

    “God’s law is consistent.”

    This is the same god who murdered every single innocent unborn baby on the planet with his Flood, right?

    @Chillbilly

    I imply no such thing.
    Please notice that Christian pro-lifers overwhelmingly, vociferously, and loudly reject the notion of killing abortionists or committing violence against their facilities.
    Please contrast that with the silence of the Muslim majority who do not bomb.

    No longer necessary. Legislatures in many sates have taken upon themselves to make virtually impossible to run a clinic (just short of an outright ban, which would be against the law)

    @Anthony 2816

    Don’t kill or your life is forfeit.

    So what was the state of affairs before the flood (and prove to me that it is literal rather than allegorical).

    But the second part of that line was " Man’s “interpretation” is flawed"

    Religion as practiced is wrong, and the root of many wars and atrocities and the single largest source of divisions today . The simple “rules” given and recorded when not elaborated on by man are direct and to the point.

    Don;t kill.
    Don’t steal.
    Don’t lie.
    Don’t “covet”.
    Love your fellow man in the same way you love yourself.

    If everyone did those five things there would be no war, no hunger, no person not cared for.
    (many more improvements too many to list)

    “God” used “power” to “create” the Universe. We are a very small part of that effort when you think of the billions of other items produced all of which are made of the matter created by God’s power.

    But yes, the bible is representative of a “god” people in a harsh unforgiving environment would envision. Doesn’t mean the basic principles are not cogent.

    Sh.t happens, when we don’t know why we blame god.
