While reading a Ann Coulter article, she quoted a ELCA web page talked about right of the unborn.  I looked thru the site and found it : Nor is it helpful to use the language of ‘rights’ in absolute ways that imply that no other significant moral claims intrude. A developing life in the womb does not have an absolute right to be born, nor does a pregnant woman have an absolute right to terminate a pregnancy. (Bold is the quote that Ann used).

Since I am a member of a church that is an ELCA congregation, I was upset.  My church seems to quite often take stances that I disagree with.  They seem to be very wishy-washy on certain subjects; usually on subjects that the secular society feels that they have the moral superiority; showing that the secular people are more open minded & accept what to me  is abhorrent behavior.

I could not believe that a church in the footsteps of Paul, Peter, & of course Jesus could not take moral stands that might upset some members.  Remember that Jesus often upset the establishment by preaching love of even the unwashed.

Back to Abortion: I find it interesting that Pro-Abortionists don't like to be called that, they prefer Pro-choice.  Is there a problem with abortion that they don't want to be associated with it?  Also, one of the Roman Catholic Church strongest stands is against abortion; but numerous Liberal Catholic politicians are pro-abortion.

In the white house, we have the most Pro-abortion politicians in the nation.  He wants to pass the Freedom of Choice Act; which would remove all restrictions on abortions.

How come a child can not get an aspirin in school without parental permission, but can get an abortion without notifying the parents?  How come it is a crime to picket abortion clinics?  Why do pro-abortionists get upset if pictures of 1-2 month fetuses (babies) are shown?

Rather than teaching & watching their children, they want to allow abortions for the mistakes. 

I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born. ~Ronald Reagan

Only half the patients who go into an abortion clinic come out alive.

If it isn't a baby, then you aren't pregnant, so what are you aborting?

abortion (n) 1 the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.  • the expulsion of a fetus from the uterus by natural causes before it is able to survive independently.
ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: from Latin abortio(n-), from aboriri ‘miscarry’ (see abort ).
