“In the Middle Ages there were no laws on abortion, and it was not until the 1580s that Pope Sixtus V decided that all abortions were a sin. Even then early term abortion was tolerated up to the mid 1800s.”

Gregory Paul

    … and even then the punishment for being involved in an abortion was excommunication. Big whoop! What is weird today is all the nut bags who take punishing abortionists to a level the church doesn’t even support.

  2. Jeff Says:

    That’s why the Church is so committed to making it against the law – they have no real punishment so they have to get the law to do it for them.

    Just came up on my daily quote site:

    A society without religion is like a vessel without compass. Napoleon

    Too bad that he couldn’t know that a gyroscope would do just fine…

    I like it Jeff. The gyroscope bit that is.

    Abortion, like the death penalty, simply requires more thought than most folks are willing to commit to.

    And relying upon a particularr clergy person’s interpretation of ancient texts is terribly lazy.
