If abortions are saying no to god, so is every safety innovation we do from medicine to lightning rods. we've been defying god since we figured out how to sharpen sticks and burning wood by that logic.

I specifically referenced fetuses that would not survive or those with no standard of life. If they will not live, it cannot be denying God. If they will be in agony every second, is God's will that they suffer and die in infancy? Is it possible that God's will is for us to act to be merciful to these specific people? I am in no way using this to justify all abortion, or even a large part. I am specifically asking about cases where carrying to term would kill mother, child or both, or where the child would not survive and would suffer all the time (birth defects and such).

Having not debated you before, it is relevant that I am agnostic, therefore my view on God is not likely to correspond to a religious viewpoint. I have trouble believing in a God that creates a world so that he can punish those he created, having known in advance that he was making them flawed and that they would sin.

I dont agree with it by the way, i disagree with both infanticide and euthananasia.

I think his argument is that since you believe babies should be murdered in order to "put them out of their misery", he thinks you should consider euthanasia in order to put you out of your misery of trying to use your brain.

Do you have an argument?

Yes, someone should euthanise PsychDave to put him out of his misery. He clearly struggles with using his brain #euthanisedave !

Abortion is not necessarily saying no to God. God has a plan that encompasses everything we do, right? He is all knowing so he knows what we will do. Abortion must either be part of his plan, or he is not all knowing.

What about cases where the fetus would not survive to term or would have no standard of life? God had already determined that it would die, we are simply avoiding causing needless suffering.

an abortion is saying no to having a baby. it sounds like this guy is trying to make this into an absolute position. ie do what I tell you or burn in hell. it is the argument Christians have been making for 2 thousand years.

I found this book and in it this guy suggests this idea. abortion is saying no to God. which I never thought of it but u r doing that. it has a bunch more but this was the interesting part. the rest has to be deciphered from a rant perspective in parts.
