    Did you know your great grandparents?

    I remember great grandparents on my mom's side only. One side had a big property with beautiful lawn where the family would gather and great grandpa would play the accordion and we would dance around while great grandma would bring out the refreshments and treats. I loved going there! On the...

    Tone definitely comes across in language. It was very apparent on the other thread in discussion with Tango. "medical procedure" "abort" "killed the baby" "murderer!" They all mean the same thing, but the last is disrespectful and condemning.

    It's the tone.

    People live according to what they believe. My auntie is a prime example. She did not believe her fetus was a life until after she became a believer and the Spirit convinced her otherwise. Notice the language? When the choice to abort is for a medical purpose, it's a "medical procedure to...

    on abortion

    It just feels like an atmosphere of condemnation if a mother chooses abortion. They don't have to answer to me. They have to answer to God. I value her right to choose as much as I value my own right to choose, even if that is a path of sin. But in conversations such as these we are having, it...

    on abortion

    I am not going to answer the whole post. I'm not interested in the abortion debate because I am not really pro-choice, per se. I simply am a realist who knows that women are going to choose abortion whether I agree or not, whether it's legal or not, whether it's safe or not. I certainly never...

    I have already stated that I would NEVER counsel someone to get an abortion, nor would I participate by escorting someone to one. Those I jobs I could never do. I could work in a place like Josiah describes, teaching relationship and life skills, parenting, etc. In fact, that's not much...

    on abortion

    Because IDay's thread keeps getting derailed with discussion on abortion, I am starting this thread for those who are not interested in discussing the language used around choice, abortion, murder, etc. However, it's a little different. Have at it here - I likely won't participate, but here is a...

    I don't know about where you live, but where I live, women are provided with impartial information on fetal development, the process and personal implications of abortion. They are assisted to make the choice, whether that is for or against. Personally, I could never do that job because of my...

    I don't support it for me. But for those who are going to choose it whether it's legal or not, they must have access to a sterile environment to reduce any harm that might come to them as a result. You're right - they have been misled by Satan, but what good is it if that person dies as a result...

    Do you intend to sound a little snarky here, or is it just my reading of this? Of course I'm not saying reality is nothing more than someone believes it to be. Seriously? You would assume I'm saying that? How sad. Our reality as believers is that God gives life, it is sin to deprive someone of...

    Did I say you were wrong? No. I'm not arguing here. I am trying to have a respectful discourse, not be confrontational. Hence why discourse is important. Pro-choice is limited to the mother's choice only. Is there a term that might be more inclusive of those who do not have a voice in the...

    Yes, WE listen to God's choice. Let me be clear: I am not pro-abortion. But in saying that, I must be clear that I am not anti-abortion. This is why discussion on language is so necessary. Because as believers, WE place ourselves under God's authority. But we cannot judge the world by Christian...

    Currently, the mother's. Of course it does. Who is going to consent to their own death, aside from those who choose suicide? And the legalities - yes, it's murder. I consider it murder as it applies to me and the decisions I make for me and any being inside of me. But for those who do not...

    What age did you feel happiest?

    I thoroughly enjoyed my 30s. My son was young, I was fit, free, and adventurous. I was in love for some of it - and I spent some of it in deep grief when he died. I had a job I loved, I felt like I had all the time in the world - meaning I could fit a lot into my days and had the energy to do it...
