Questions Regarding Alabama's Flat-Out Wrong - And Response

Friday, May 24, 2019

Re: Roy Exum: Alabama's Flat-Out Wrong 

I recently read the above mentioned opinion post on the Chattanoogan.  After reading, the following questions came to mind. 

In reference to "she should have the only opinion and that's final...unless she is 'underage' which is where the only voice would then be that of her parents or guardian."

Question:  What about the male involved - should he have an opinion (that is, excluding the crime of rape)?

In reference to "so instead, the desperate girl goes to what we grew up calling 'a coat-hanger shanty.'" 

Question:   Is there really only one option? 

In reference to "but a state law should have nothing to do with anyone's freedom, including that of choice."  

Question:  Does this include a person's choice to burglarize, murder, assault, slander, etc.?

In reference to "Churches of every denomination are eager for righteousness, yet have no idea the definition - my Jesus wouldn't begin to do with what they did in His Name, have done to defile the purposes of the Bible?"

Question:  How, specifically, did the Alabama law defile the purposes of the Bible?

In reference to Senate Minority Leader Bobby Singleton's statement at the end of the article - "You just raped every woman who has been raped by a man."

Question:  How does an effort to protect life equate to rape?

Something to think about...

No, you are wrong. The human being developing in the woman’s womb is fully a human person and should receive the guarantee of life.  That person in the womb is not a part of the woman’s body to be disposed of as an excised piece of tissue. 

Whoever “Your Jesus” is, he is not the Living God, the Logos, who wrote every single word in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, and who said in Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born, I consecrated you.”  That applies to every human person, not just the prophet.  The person in the womb should not be murdered. 

If the woman’s life is threatened by a pregnancy related disorder, then the developing human person should be delivered and given the full benefit of medical care in order to preserve his/her life.
