This simply is out of control! You don’t believe in abortion, don’t have one. It is a personal decision between a woman, or girl, about her body, and her future. Enough already. What amazes me, are the zealots that want to take away women’s/girls’ rights over their own body, yet, can’t, and won’t, figure out gun control. A new shooting every other day.
All whilst hiding behind ‘Their’ ‘interpretation of religion’, what ‘God says’. All for ‘Their’ personal agenda, that has absolutely nothing to do with the person facing these decisions. UNREAL!!!
I am certain that many of these zealots, are doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of ANY WRITTEN WORD. This is ALL ABOUT POWER, GREED, CONTROL, and ultimately MONEY! Last I checked, GREED IS A SIN! As in ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’. As actually stated in Christianity.
Originating in Christian theology, the seven deadly sins are pride, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, sloth, and wrath. Pride is sometimes referred to as vanity or vainglory, greed as avarice or covetousness, and wrath as anger.
In the sixth century, St. Gregory the Great—who would become Pope Gregory I—rearranged them in his commentary on the Book of Job, removing “sloth” and adding “envy.” Instead of giving “pride” its own place on the list, he described it as the ruler of the other seven vices, which became known as the seven deadly sins.
The 7 Deadly or Capital Sins are not found in a list, per se, in the Bible, but rather are part of Church Tradition, dating back to the early Church and especially St. John Cassian and St. Gregory the Great. These sins are considered deadly or capital (from the Latin word for head; caput). In the Bible, there are examples of lists of sins, such as Proverbs 6:16-19 and Galatians 5:19-21, however, these are not specifically the 7 Deadly sins of pride, avarice, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth (acedia), as they are enumerated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1866. At various points in the Bible, all 7 of these sins are proscribed. Traditionally, the Church has also provided virtues that counteract these deadly sins. They are humility (vs. pride), generosity (vs. avarice), love/charity (vs. envy), kindness (vs. wrath), self-control/chastity (lust), temperance (vs. gluttony), and zeal (vs. sloth).
The Bible even goes on to say he who without ‘Sin’ cast the first stone. Or lest forget though shalt not judge, for thy will be judged.
Meanwhile mass preventable shootings are taking place every other day seemingly. Gun Control you say?! What Gun Control? Rape, Human Trafficking, and/or Incest resulting in pregnancy is happening EVERY DAY! To Women, Girls, Boys, Men, even Babies, and Animals, Rape and Incest is happening DAILY TO MANY PEOPLE! But, only Girls and Women can get pregnant from this gruesome violent invasive act.
Yet, here we are punishing women, girls, many victims, others out of necessity. So many of the victims, they never report the crime. This is due to shame, fear, and/or consequence. Many, and most, Rapes are committed by someone the victim knows, or is known in their community. Many as close as being family, friends, even lovers, boyfriends, husbands, community leaders. Let that sink in.
We have a welfare system that can’t even support the children we have in the system now. Can you imagine what will happen next? An inexcusable amount of violence, death, and sacrificing, against women, girls, and children. Let that sink in.
For we all know Rapes and Incest are not going to stop. Unwanted pregnancy is not going to stop. So, please tell me who is gaining from this intense unforgivable cruelty? Who?
