63. i am so sorry to hear

what happened to your family. it is exactly that kind of narrative that people need to hear who might be on the fence. i doubt real wingnuts could be convinced, but it shouldn't stop us from trying.

a friend of mine for many years is jewish. in the jewish religion, it is not only allowed, but obligatory to perform an abortion to save the mother's life. i don't know about non medical reasons, but if mother's life is in danger, saving her life becomes paramount. and if an abortion is necessary, then so be it. i don't know why this is different in christian religions. i don't know of anything in the NT that contradicts that aspect of jewish law, for those who follow judeochristian teachings, such as a catholic hospital.

it is clear that republican cretins have commandeered the christian religion and twist it to use to their political ends to control women. truly revolting.

the tragedy you experienced stays with a family forever.

peace to you
