Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle....
a little respect for what people hold dear is respectable.

Just wanted to clarify some aspects of the traditional Jewish view on that passage.
I've found your writings very interesting. It seems like you've been studying this stuff for years. No copy-and-paste for you. Did you study this in school?

16th century? Leaving religion completely aside. It's the very state-of-the-art technologies of ultrasound, neonatal surgery and an ever earlier fetal viability that leads more & more "modern" people to the conclusion that abortion is not just another medical procedure.

No, I grew up in rural Mississippi where there certainly weren't options like that, and in college I focused on what I teach now which is South Asian politics. But I had a traditional Orthodox upbringing, which means I've been studying the (Jewish) Bible and, later, the Talmud and other major writings in Hebrew since I was 5 years old, primarily with my father which is, in fact, the traditional way to study. Obviously I don't know as much as a rabbi or a Hebrew scholar or anything like that. Today I belong to the Conservative denomination, I won't go into how that's different though because it's irrelevant here and besides that much is easy to look up.

When it's your time to meet the maker, who I am sure is 100000000000000000000000000000% against abortion I hope you wont be as rude as you are now to him/her/it. What will your excuse be to him/her/it?

What I said was not getting out of hand.

The "I am right", the personal attacks, bringing the "when you meet your maker", claiming sole interpretation of the Bible...it's all out of hand.

And yes I have taken part in that as well, and I apologize.

We are all guilty of that, and that cannot be avoided.

Are you being deliberately obtuse, or do you really, truly, think that that's the basis for every pro-life man's stance? Because it's sure nothing to do with mine, I don't expect women to be "obedient", but thanks for the assumption.

I think she was commenting on your statement that you'd likely kidnap a woman who wanted to abort your progeny.

Which by the way I found so disturbing I didn't even want to comment on it.
