Rape apologist
Rape is a horrendous crime.
So is tearing an unborn child out of its own mother's womb.

Nothing is torn, Alan, it's a gentle, low key procedure nowadays.

In the UK, up to 24 weeks, abortion is not a crime at all.

I am of the opinion if a termination is required after 20 weeks, steps should be taken to preserve the life of the foetus if that is possible.

Why 20 weeks? Even at 24, long term survival is rare.

Although rare I believe a very small number of babies have survived between 20/24 weeks.

But only with oxygen tents (or whatever they're called)  and 24-hour medical care I think.

Very likely, but irrelevant. The point is that they can (rarely, and with lots of intervention) survive at 20 weeks, which is one reason why I thinkthat should be the limit for "social" abortions: it gives the woman quite enough time to decide. If the mother's life or physical health is at risk, or if the foetus is found to be so abnormal that it won't be able to survive birth for long, or is already dead, or if it is found to have any one of a specific group of really awful genetic conditions such as epidermolysis bullosa, proteus syndrome, or a few others (the list could be agreed by lawmakers, and shouldn't be too long), I think it should be allowed up to birth.

I agree. If you truly believe that aborting a foetus at six weeks is morally murder and therefore it should be banned, then you can't allow exceptions based on who the father of the foetus was or the circumstances of the conception.



You might argue that the damage to the psychological or physical health of  the mother could balance the moral wrong of doing the abortion, but I don't think you'd find any pro-lifer arguing that unless the mother's life was in danger of being lost and even if they did, it opens up the possibility of allowing abortions in other circumstances which they do not want.

So, supporting making abortion illegal even for rape victims is not rape apology.
Except Alan accepts the OT with the approved rape there so he is a rape apologist.

Are you saying Alan doesn't believe in the truth of the OT? Or that rape isn't approved in the OT?

Conservative Christians say, quite sincerely, that they believe in the whole of the bible, while quiety overlooking or explaining away the awkward bits. It doesn't mean that they approve of rape, or for that matter genocide. It just means that they are logically inconsistent, like most people.

I'd offer that most Christians, and I assume Alan would confim, would accept that the New Covenant made byChrist (as God) supercedes the old between God and Israel.
In the same way, His command to "love...." and you can place everyone in the mix there, means that harming orviolating a person breaks that command.
"The rose of all the world is not for me.
I want, for my part only the little white rose of Scotland,
that smells sharp and sweet and breaks the heart."

But that doesn't change that if you accept the OT as true, that the god of the OT approves of rape. If you worship the god of the OT, you worship rape.

Chapter and verse, please, for the OT's approval of rape.

Does he? He probably cherry picks, like most Christians.

Well you should have made that clear in your response to a post that actually made no mention of the Old Testament at all. It looks as though you were calling him rape apologist just because he said there are two lives involved and therefore abortion is bad.

What I see here is you making a mistake and trying to pretend you didn't mean what you wrote. This is a thread about abortion and if you really did mean to claim that Alan is a rape apologist for believing in the Old Testament then your comment was just random off topic noise.

Pence might feel differently if he was a woman and had got pregnant after being raped. >:(
