To al, the Christians out there . The non Christians may also respond but please be respectful of other comments :)

If you're father got you pregnant would any if the women out the get an abortion?
Christianity FORBIDS abortion as it is an act of murder but still you're father getting you pregnant and abortion to me sounds pretty good.

The question is, is it moral to have an abortion if your father got you pregnant. Of course abortion would seem attractive in those circumstances and it is and should be legally available.

The moral question remains though as a private problem for the woman, and these sorts of private moral dilemmas are the province of religion. Religion helps interpret the moral universe for its followers and even non-religious people who are interested in moral philosophy.

If the woman is Christian, she may see her foetus as a living child. She may see it as her duty to protect it despite the obvious disadvantages to her personal circumstances and she may choose against abortion for those reasons.

I hope Michaela comes back because this is an interesting topic, and also because it will take forever to end otherwise.

I just want to add that when there's a separation of church and state, the church can't FORBID abortion in any practical way, and thank goodness. It can just pass a ruling that it is wrong in a moral sense. It's not more than advice.

Well, that's incest. Abortion is wrong, but that situation is wrong on too many levels.

Seems to be a discussion research attempt. I suggest moving this to the forums.

I am a prochoice Christian. My faith allows for abortion.

Do you actually think that abortion should be illegal except in the cases like rape by the woman's father, or is this just another red herring? I am against all abortion except in cases where the mother's life is endangered. I would accept without supporting abortion for rape victims IF it meant the end of abortion on demand.

This is not a debate topic. Rephrase it as a debate and I'll happily give you a debate.
