Abortion is a matter for careful consideration and meditation. Perhaps a
foetus that has been terminated has been spared a painful existance, for
varied reasons: the circumstances of the conception,ie-rape, the possible
lack of financial and emotional means, and the resentment that faces this
unwanted child.
The child planned for been given what they need from their parents: love,
security, warmth.
I certainly cannot agree with the notion that an unformed, preindependant
feotus is the same as a man who goes to war. The soul that may or may not
have arrived in the body, has not formed consiousness through separation
from the mother. A man who knows he exists, and is aware of the existance
of his soul is of no comparision to the former.

This is a topic which will never find a suitable outcome to all concerned.
