in response to reader comment: as we crumble from within

Unfortunately there are many practicing Christians who still support "abortion rights," although it can be argued that they are not truly Christians because of that. As an Atheist with a reverence for life and no reverence for or belief in deities or the hereafter, I cannot find any reason not to consider all forms of abortion to be simply another form of murder. The deliberate termination of an innocent human life has the same consequence regardless of its stage of development. In the abominable practice of "partial birth abortion" the nature of this homicide, or more specifically 'infanticide,' is so clearly demonstrated that only those with hearts of stone could fail to see it for what it is. When a woman hires a doctor [assassin] to drill a hole in her newborn baby's skull under the guise that it is still a "fetus" because its feet are still inside her vaginal track then she, the mother, is an accomplice in this murder. And if a politician supports the practice he or she becomes an accomplice as well.
