Even the notion of God is man-made and cultural in origin — every culture invents a god or gods.
There is no special truth to religious arguments. Ancient narratives are not a source of truth. Science, law and philosophy are much more reliable guides.
First, the religious doctrine of forgiveness and confession is a wise escape clause that would cover even abortion. Second, God’s abortions (miscarriages) are tolerated. Logically, these two points should be precedents for permitting abortions.
Our secular society does not have laws prescribing capital punishment for mothers or their physicians in the event of an abortion. This is tolerated and it is a social legal precedent for the acceptance of abortion.
Republican-dominated state legislatures do not take this issue on directly. Wisely, for their purposes, they only restrict the ability to provide the means for abortions.
Pregnancy centers are thinly disguised religiously motivated mechanisms to justify so-called pro-life counseling or cruel guilt induction. I’m sorry to say that some very good and religious citizens do volunteer work for these stealth centers without understanding that they are undercutting legitimate choice by providing emotionally charged and distorted scientific-sounding information.
Such dishonesty and taking advantage of the vulnerable is immoral by human standards. I bet Jesus would have problems with these actions.
