and that they may have had all the makings of irresponsible parenthood as well. Two lives gone and a messed up one remains for someone else to take care of.
I suppose she's from another one parent family. Don't know about the young man. What's lacking is any teaching for those deprived of a full family experience what it actually entails, what it's supposed to be. Teaching abstinence until marriage would solve most of these problems, just as it did in the past. This current world order considers itself to be wise, but in truth have become fools.

When did the past become the present, in your mind?
So everything just changed overnight?
You go to sleep and it's your version of a perfect world...you wake up in the morning and you don't recognize the place?
"The Church is 200 years out of date,"
This led him to say condoms could help fight AIDS, women should be ordained deacons and civil unions for homosexual couples could be accepted. He also said the growing number of divorced and remarried Catholics should not longer be excluded from receiving the Eucharist.
Explain YOUR logic.
Tell us why he would try and choke her to death WHILE pregnant, and then kill her because she had an abortion.
In your world you can choke a pregnant women to death and call an ambulance to take the body to a hospital; and have the fetus removed?
You don't have to call an ambulance, choke her while in the hospital parking lot and just drag her in?
And yes James, I think Abortion is a terrible form of birth control. However I do not think that I have the right to foist my views on the person who may have to care for the child alone. It's her body.
Birth Control and Plan B should be widely and easily available. And debating that Plan B is abortion is splitting hairs. Failure to implant is the single greatest obstacle not to conception, but to being able to get pregnant. It occurs naturally in a significant percentage of cases. I don't recall the statistics but I do recall it being surprisingly high. Plan B merely ensures that the conceptus does not implant. I am unwilling to call a Blastocyst a human life. It is a potential human life with a myriad of hurdles to overcome before it does become a human life.
Anything that does away with late term abortion, or abortion entirely, is to be welcomed in my opinion. Sadly, human beings are not well disciplined or well behaved people who make invariably good ethical decisions in moments of fear and crisis. I accompanied two women through their decision process, and the aftermath of it (neither child was mine) and that led me to re-think my knee-jerk Abortion is OK position.
see as positive. What was that "I" word that usually springs so quickly to mind with James posts? Irrational, yeah, but that's not it. Indefensible, yeah, but it was something else, Revolting, no, that's true but the "I" was at the beginning, Incredible, well certainly he lacks credibility, but that's not it. Give me a minute, I'll come up with it.
