A red blood cell in a blood bank is human, and it’s alive, so it’s a human life. Do you know how many billions of them are burned alive every month, just because they can’t be exploited anymore? We need to dedicate all of our voices and resources to this holocaust!

Job 31:15
15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?
KJV

Ecc 11:5
5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
KJV

We live in a society save the whale and kill the baby
sad isn’t it

And at this point, there are multiple points of view in that regard. Yours is only as valid as the next.

Unsafe abortions kill 70,000 – shouldn’t that really be 140,000 because the larger number includes the babies that were killed by their mothers too. And “millions of others harmed” should also include the millions of babies “harmed”. This heasline shows more about Reuters attitude and slate toward pro-abortion policies and anything i have ever seen – or hope to ever see.

If we cared enough about the world’s women to ensure that they have 1) access to family planning services when they want to avoid getting pregnant, 2) access to safe, legal abortion services when they aren’t able to prevent an unwanted pregnancy, 3) access to treatment in the event of complications arising from an abortion, virtually all of these deaths would not happen. That’s a roundabout way of saying that we can END unsafe abortion if we just committed to doing it.

As social, moral and ethical guides in their communities, religious leaders need to advocate for the rights of the 70,000 women who die each year because of illegal, unsafe abortions. To read more about the Religious Institute’s reaction, read our Executive Director, Rev. Debra Haffner’s blog at: http://www.religiousinstitute.org/sexual ity-and-religion

I attribute this to greenhouse gases leading to an increasingly polluted atmosphere and global warming that somewhat ruin our human fertility. The environment is to blame (or to credit) for less unwanted babies perhaps.
