God doesn't make babies men and women do. I've not seen too many babies born out of "God's" womb.
Excellent point, Seamus.
The real drive behind the antiabortionists: misogyny
. I don't believe one of them cares a hoot for a fetus. They care about this issue because it gives them a chance to flex their rightous muscles. They need this kind of thing to give them an opportunity to march around, pretending to be morally concerned. If their marching tramples women's rights, feelings, and bodies, well, that is just fine. According to the bible, women don't deserve fair treatment.
As Dan Barker says in his book which I have cited before: "Although the bible is NOT antiabortion, it is ANTICHOICE. If there is one thing the bible and fundamentalist MEN can't TOLERATE, it is a woman who takes CONTROL."
