I quit reading around page 11. I just caught up and would like to say, and hopefully nobody disagrees that:
I am happy Jesus 's wife and son are alive
I am sad that in the US in 2002 (most recent stats available from the CDC):
357 women died from complications during pregnancy, childbirth and up to 42 days postpardom.
9,179 infants died postneonatal (28-days to 1 year) primarily from SIDS
18,791 infants died neonatal (less than 28 days)
1,287,000 babies died due to abortion
7 mothers that died due to abortion-related complications.
72 mothers that committed suicide following birth
145 mothers that committed suicide following abortion
In short, I feel sad for the 28,399 women and children who did not survive pregnancy and/or first year of life.
and I feel sad for the 1,287,152 women and children who did not survive abortion.
I'm not quoting idiots who promote unsafe recovery strap techniques anymore. :miff:

Ultimately, here is what I hear you saying: "I am ok with imposing my beliefs on others if there is a way I can benefit from it."
IIRC, I asked that you share your experiences here because you have seen many sides of this issue, but I don't remember asking you to take a cheap shot. Play fair.
I would hate to be in a situation to decide between my wife and child, and to be perfectly honest, I don't know what I would do there. When there is emminent danger, the rules of engagement change. RARELY is there ANY certainty that death will occur. Even in your situation, you have BOTH wife and child. If Doc told you that you should terminate, you would be without your boy today. My good friend Brian was a child whom the doctors told the Mom to abort because of complications, and they didn't, and both were fine. Remember that Docs are afraid of liability, and do not want to be at risk (but this is a moot point).
Here is my problem with your opinion of "I think abortion is wrong, but I can't tell other people that" : Your stance is completely inconsistant. You can't be for AND against imposing morals at the same time, that is a difinitive contradiction.
