i think the answer should come from the pope and the bishops who slaughtered jews and muslims in palestine during the crusades, hey hey

Animals have 'souls' too, if by 'soul' you mean self-consciousness. That doesn't make them human.

dont also forget the justice of the almighthy will hold you responsible for any harm you do to your body and anything that might cause your body harm try your possible best to avoid it at all cost, you've got to save your life, but not in the case of abortion where the foetus doesnt pose any threat.

I'm all for Christians killing themselves.

Does that count?

This fuzziness is the reason why a war-mongering president can claim to be a 'Christian' and people would believe.

Oh yes, but at that point it's rare that it's a risky pregnancy. It's usually when the "fetus" has grown a bit more. Even as early as 8 weeks it has developed a brain. I think it's more of a human at that time, but like you say, it's fuzzy.

Yes, but, think about it. There are so many living sperms (and eggs) that go to waste regularly. Millions of cells in your body that die every day. And there is a point in the development of the embryo (through fusion of a living sperm and a living ovum) when it consists of just one cell. At that point (say maybe the sperm was a from a hostile source) most people might have reason to get rid of it and not feel guilty. At that point, the single celed baby might be in a test tube, in case of in-vitro fertilisation, and the parents might say "we don't want the baby anybody" and the "baby" will have to be destroyed. So I think it's fuzzy, really.

Well, it's alive in the womb so if it was once alive and now it's dead I would think that it can be killed. Just a thought.

I am inclined to agree with you, though the bible doesn't say whether an unborn child can be 'killed' or not.

@ Seun

This means christian kill in some circumstances because it is an agreement from the mother for her to stay alive

Even anti-abortion campaigners know the answer to this one: forget the child and save the mother - the mother can have another child later.

a quick one @ Hotangel & WesleyanA.

What do you suggest to this scenario. A woman[b]due to problems during delivery [/b] has to chose within 3 minutes either staying alive or agreeing to kill her unborn child which may kill her if delivered.

Thou shall not kill --- it's right there in the commandments.
