Abortion and Religious Freedom
Three out of the four NPR commentators on *Roe v. Wade* last week babbled
pro-abortion drivel. Why am I not surprised?
Perhaps the most idiotic and dangerous nonsense came from the rabbi. He
seems to believe that we must respect any idea - such as his delusion that
human lives begin at birth - regardless of how inane - and the actions it
justifies, regardless of how horrific, if the idea is put forth as a
religious belief. Let's suppose there were a religion that believed life
begins at puberty because the ability to reproduce is essential to every
living thing, a belief that is actually more plausible than the good rabbi's
fixation with birth which is biologically insignificant. Presumably, under
his perverse concept of religious freedom, pre-pubescent children could be
subjected to poisoning, live dismemberment and having their brains sucked
out in the same manner as prenatal children and we would be constitutionally
powerless to prevent it.

Birthist Abortionite necropimping from the religious perspective often
attempts to use the First Amendment as a universal cover. After making their
ludicrous assertions that contradict biological realities, they draw the
equally ludicrous conclusion that the only reasonable societal standard to
adopt when "religions" disagree about the standing of prenatal lives is the
lowest possible standard -- which is no standard at all. We must tolerate
the unrestricted slaughter of prenatal children because to do otherwise is
to violate religious freedom.
This is worse than ludicrous. It is obscene.
