    The people who want to allow women to make the painful decision to end an unwanted/unplanned/unaffordable pregnancy are the same ones who do not want you to be censored simply for speaking your mind. Some of them may find your Orthodox Catholicism offensive and invasive, but do not believe they have the right to persecute you because of your religion. They want you to have the freedom they want, to make decisions for and about yourself. They do not want to see children born into circumstances where it will be unloved, unwanted, abused, uneducated, unhealthy, hungry,…. The monsters you seem to feel liberals have become do not want to see you arrested, fined, incarcerated, or executed because of your beliefs. They also do not want you to do these things to them.
    If they are monsters, they are unusually benevolent.
    I truly understand your passion, However –
    Under our Constitution, all are created equal. Men do not suffer the burden of a pregnancy which makes the woman unequal in her ability to compete for a job, get an education, or find financial security.
    I wish we had a world so full of love and respect and the ability to care for each person born. We do not. As long as we let issues like this divide us and keep us from focusing on other things that kill children and adults, we never will.

    A much more accurate ’toon than all the ones illustrating the issue with 3 to 8 year olds instead of more accurately a collection of cells in blastophore state, or an organism with no brain, nervous system or capacity to survive outside the womb. EVen the Old Testament says "kill a slave and her fetus- death penalty, only kill the fetus – pay a small fine, clearly illustrating that the “born” are people, the “unborn” are not.

    Thank you, sir. I greatly appreciate the tone of your reply, I had expected a harsher assessment of my comment. And for the first time, I see we have points of agreement, even if not on this specific topic. I hope we can continue our debates in this tone over the months to come and perhaps dwell more on our points of agreement. Elites and bankers are a target of my frustration as well.
    My compliments to your service as a volunteer. It does you honor and provides hope for those you aid.
    I am glad for the chance to see you in this new light.
    With much appreciation,
    and respect,

    “I am not a Liberal”, do you read your own posts?

    Orthodox Catholic speaks out against abortion, yet worships a god who murdered every single innocent unborn child on the planet with his Flood. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    You correctly, and with a keen grasp of the obvious, distinguish pornography from love. But then you make the unsubstantiated and ridiculous conclusion that the former prevents the latter. Why can’t one have both?

    Your statement makes as much sense as this: “There is no giving of self to the other in the use of toaster ovens. Giving of self is the essence of what love is. Using toaster ovens encourages selfishness rather than self-sacrificial self giving.”

    By the way, are you still worshipping your innocent-unborn-child-murdering god?

    What kind of God would give us “free will” and then prevent us from exercising it? Every woman who aborts has to live with that decision the rest of her life. It is none of your business. It is between her and her God. So stay the heck out of it.

    Typical con. I believe in small government, when it comes to business but, when it comes to your womb… bring on the BIG government!

    @orthodox catholic

    you’re such a sexist, it’s barely worth responding to you.
    what about men in pornography? I don’t watch women in pornography, i like to masturbate to men having group sex. how about you?

    with regard to enslaving women, you are the one who wants to enslave women, even sentence them to death when the god you fear gives them an ectopic pregnancy that WILL kill them, and your so called child molesting church would deny them (and has denied them) a safe, life-saving abortion.

    you are truely a disgusting individual, hiding behind your holier than though attitude.

    which 12 step program, or court imposed community service are you in that you think that the religious solution that works for you, must be imposed on everyone?

    Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great, if a sperm gets wasted, God gets quite irate-Monty Python. How is it that the same folks who are so against abortion are also so against sex education, birth control, and sexual enlightenment? Ultimate irony eh? Many if not all of the abortions they’re against they cause by their regressive attitudes towards sex. Wasn’t it Santorum who said, and I choke on these words; birth control is a sin? Or was that the pope? In my own opinion a statement like that indicates mental illness in its most toxic form. The thing I see about “Orthodox Catholic” is that he’s never had an original thought in his life; since childhood under threat of harm, parental rejection, and hell, he’s learned to parrot the blather his elders demand he accept as truth which is just the ignorance of primitive people who lived thousands of years ago. Demonizing human sexuality is not morality in my opinion and that is the only morality that I see christianity really getting behind, unless you consider passages like this from the Bible to be moral: When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.Exodus 21:7-11 NLT. Look it up yourself; I didn’t write it.
