The Hypocrisy of Religionism

fetus at 12 weeks -- 2 1/2 inches in length
The more that I know of strongly religious people, the less I respect them. Needless to say, I do not respect religious myths, but I am talking about the people who claim to love Jesus whilst defying the moral teachings ascribed to Jesus.

Commandments 1-5 are, predictably, devoted to entrenching Yahweh's rights, but the next is relevant to the video.

6 “You shall not murder.

"Murder, as defined in common law countries, is the unlawful killing of another human being with intent (or malice aforethought), and generally this state of mind distinguishes murder from other forms of unlawful homicide. All jurisdictions, ancient and modern, consider it a most serious crime and therefore impose severe penalty on its commission."

Definitions of late-term abortion vary. Some sources place the cut-off after 12 weeks, while others use 20 weeks, or 27 weeks.

Regardless, it is hypocritical to murder a sentient adult to protect unwanted, or life-threatening fetuses.

Abortion is legal in many states. Murder is legal in none.

I consider abortion a last resort technique of birth control, but other methods sometimes fail and some highly fertile young people neglect precautions. Regardless, if abortion is not legal, back-street abortionists will step in to fill the need. In other words, there is no way to stop abortion. Better, then, to reduce maternal loss.

I'm reminded of an old skit by Whoopi Goldberg:

"I have the answer to abortion .......... shoot men's dicks!"

Amusing irony, but vasectomy would seem a less traumatic solution.

Killing doctors for providing a too often needed service is heinous. During a church service, no less.
