As an aside, I used to go to a place called atheistparents.org It seemed like a nice place.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

If you are a pro-life atheist -
*Do you make any exceptions for abortion? What are they, if you do?
*How would you want your opinions enforced in our nation, how should unborn human life be protected?

1) Yes, but I don't consider abortion to be a black and white issue. The longer the pregnancy goes on before ultimately getting an abortion, the more it troubles me. First days, weeks, and maybe a couple of months I don't have an issue with. Late stage pregnancy abortion I do have a problem with. The longer it goes before termination, the bigger the problem I have with it.

2) How do I want my opinions enforced? I don't.
I would like to see schools take up teaching kids proper sex education. None of this abstinence only bullcrap.

I'm a pro-life atheist and this is so well said.

Be true to yourself. Heart

Advice? Consider

You're fucked, just roll with it. Drinking Beverage



I kid, I kid. There will be days where you almost wish you'd have gone the other way, but those are few and far between every other time you get to look into those bright eyes and see the adoration they have for you.

But then again, I still have really young'uns, ask me again in another ten years and I might be singing a different tune! Tongue Congrats, and good luck!!

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Some sincere questions for pro-life atheists, no debate intended
I don't care for the term "pro-life," for it implies that as humans, there are only a select few of us (cough...religious) who care about preserving life. That's not so. Everyone is pro-life and even "pro" or "anti" abortion is poor wording.

It is about a woman's reproductive rights and it should be between her and her doc. The government has no business interfering or making laws that impact female reproductive rights.

Just my pov.

Be true to yourself. Heart

RE: Some sincere questions for pro-life atheists, no debate intended
In conclusion, I thank those who gave sincere responses.

It is self-evident that I do not need religion or God to be a moral, happy, productive human being.

Pro-life is a marketing slogan.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

This...

I would generally consider myself pro-choice, but the longer a pregnancy goes on the more uncomfortable I feel with abortion.

At an early stage I view it as little more than a last resort, emergency contraception. But as time goes on, things do get much more complicated, and in the final stages of pregnancy, an abortion for any reason other than to save the mother's life in my opinion, would be murder.
