Logically[edit]

Why don't 'these people' actually give the future children 'good' homes (fostering, adoption etc) where they can be raised as 'God-fearing Christians'? (Slight sarcasm intended.) And also provide information on contraception so that the problem is minimised?

Or would this involve actually putting their money and resources where their mouths are?

I feel many Christians are myopic. They focus on one interpretation of one passage, and then take it to be a holy commandment. They seek to fulfill it no matter the means or the cost, whether they lie, steal, or deceive. They'll justify by saying they're "doing the Lord's work." In actuality, they're abandoning the Lord, forsaking the most fundamental principles given to us by Jesus: that we are to care for others, and ensure everyone can live happy and healthy. Once they've done that, it's far easier for selfish desires to overtake their desire for good, until there's nothing left. Once they're rich enough, they'll stop thinking about preventing abortion and think more about how to extract more cash through "donations." Of course they wouldn't put resources to reducing the root cause of abortion: there's no profit in that! That's not to say all Christians are like that, though. The UMC really focuses hard on contraceptive care and improving adoptive and foster services (though I may be biased since I am a Methodist). IveBeenFrank (talk) 13:01, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
