Total ban on abortion
This is old news, but it was new news to me. I was perusing the documentaries in Spanish on iTunes, when I stumbled on "A Quiet Inquisition" which deals with the ban on all abortions (including cases of rape, incest and risk to the life of the mother) in Nicaragua which started in 2008 thanks to the catholic church and other christian groups. The ban started originally in neighboring El Salvador (also thanks to the RCC), but the filmmakers could not get people to open up and speak freely there so they tried Nicaragua where they found the courageous Dr. Carla Cerrato who let them film her.





With the exception of Cuba, abortions are illegal throughout Latin America through what has been primarily the influence of the RCC, and unfortunately this total ban on abortions could easily happen in other Latin American countries. I don't believe that this could happen in the U.S. although there are certainly people on the right that propose total bans on abortion. The film is disturbing and heart-rending to say the least. I just don't get the logic of it, if the mother dies, so does the fetus.

*Why* are the RCC such twits about abortion?

That's OK with them if it's "God's will."

They don't care who lives or dies as long as the living or dying is left up to God.

That question is two words too long. Smartass

RE: Total ban on abortion
That just pisses me off. Religion fucks up everything. Assholes.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Theyre also twits about birth control too. Drinking Beverage

I suspect tho, most are apathetic about abortion. I'd love to see them try beating the drum as loudly as do for abortion and the death penalty, as they won't for IVF (which they're tottally against as well).


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Total ban on abortion
I expect that some of our theists here will continue to claim that religion causes no harm.

Ignorant, delusional assholes. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Total ban on abortion
I wonder if losing the belief in a soul would make many anti-abortion theists reconsider their position?

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

One wonders if it is nothing more than an "issue" for them to scream about. How about little boys and rape?

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
