EXACTLY as it is absolute nonsense to state that *gametes*
aren't alive... unique... human (adj.)... and Stage ONE of the
So you won't find PRO-Choicers that claim that *any* RPE
stage isn't alive. However, unlike the doltish ANTI-Choicers,
we also are intelligent enough to know THIS:
Acorn : Oak Tree :: Human RPE : Human *Being* (Person)
Since most RRR cultists CLAIM to be Christians, they should
be aware that the Bible makes it *clear* that PERSONHOOD
*begins* at BIRTH. In its passages stressing the importance of:
-- BIRTH order -- First-BORNS and... -- BIRTHrights.
And... the Bible NEVER regards any RPEs as *people*. But
just ONCE, it defends an RPE; in this case a fetus. In this
passage: Ex. 21:20-25. Which regards the fetus merely to be
PROPERTY. And the passage *condones* SLAVERY!
ALL human life that is ever defended AS people in the Bible
have been BORN.
In conclusion, there's that HYPOCRISY I mentioned earlier.
RRR Cultists don't give a damn for the future opportunities
and well-being of the girls' and women's lives they are trying
to louse up. (Which is a REJECTION of Jesus *command* that
His followers show love and compassion to their neighbors. So
much for RRR Cultists being *Christians*!)
And they look the other way and whistle a tune while no
fewer than a quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) per DAY
*potential* people are being electively aborted worldwide...
And THAT is *hypocrisy* to the infinite power!

GOD'S "WIN-WIN-WIN" SITUATION
God is omniscient and omnipotent. That means that He has
always KNOWN everything *about* everything, past present
and future. And that He may freely INTERACT, uniquely, with
any person, group, or all humanity, however and whenever He
Trillions (indeed, even octillions) of years ago, God KNEW
just *which* human entities (from sperm and ova on, inclu-
sive) would be born, and which ones would NOT, for what-
ever reason. In the case of Jeremiah, He interacted BEFORE
Jeremiah reached the womb -- while Jeremiah was STILL at
the sperm-and-ovum stage! (Jer. 1:5). In THAT case, at
least, the soul had been instilled at the sperm-and-egg
stage -- the stage at which God communicated with Jeremiah.
So it's VERY possible that God instills ALL souls at that
stage... since God ALREADY knows which of them will later
become people, and which ones will not. And if He chooses
to instill souls in ALL of those, then heaven must be a VERY
populated place. And any potential people that happened to
have been aborted then got a FREE pass to heaven. And
missed the RISK that is faced by all of us here on earth.
And then, there also is the very REAL possibility that God
chooses to instill souls ONLY in the entities that He KNOWS,
beforehand, *will* be BORN. Then there are NO free passes
to heaven. But that's no loss to the QUINTILLION human
entities, daily, that never knew the difference.
Any way you look at it, it's a "win-win" situation for God.
Which makes it no great surprise that He never said so much
as ONE SINGLE WORD against abortion. Since abortion is a
highly-valuable REMEDY that enables millions of women to put
their lives BACK on track, and gives them another chance to
pursue their full ranges of future opportunities, the availability
of it is FAR more in line with God's COMPASSION (and the
compassion that Jesus commanded us to show to others),
than it would be for women to be FORCED to carry-to-term
against their will, and see many of their opportunities and
their well-being destroyed. (Particularly since God ALSO
was/is well-aware that MOST women who DO obtain abortions
go on later to HAVE children, by choice, when the timing is
better, and the circumstances and prospects for long-term
stable family environments are far more favorable.)
For God, the status quo is "win-win-win"
