I do not know about Bible being the only word of God, but otherwise what you say- God says in Malachi, " I am the Lord and I change not" Truth does not change with man's thinking. Man just distorts it. God was, is, and always will be the same. is absolutely right. God never changes.

So you agree that menstruating women are unclean, and that the treatment meted out to women in this way is justified?

I don't think your opinions vary on the tragedy of death or the horrific nature of crime.... I think what varies is both of your definitions of "life".

Alexandra,
Because Jesus changed the nature of redemption with His crucifixion He also clarified what defiles people. The OT was symbolic of the spirit. Jesus went straight to the heart of it by declaring how people are defiled spiritually. By their words and deeds. A menstruating woman was symbolic of the stain of sin. But since people of the OT practiced the symbolic in place of the spritual, Jesus had to make clarifications. A menstruating woman is not unclean, literally. It was meant symbolically. People became so engrossed with the symbolic that they substituted it for the true nature of God's will. Jesus said the Father wished to be worshipped in spirit and truth.

I hear what you are saying; I think we also need to remember that some of the critics have become as strident as they are because they have experienced it, and perhaps have felt betrayed by those who would say "it's MY body" only to realize afterward that no amount of rationalizing is ever going to take the edge of the horror they are feeling day after day because of what they have done.

In the sense of "live and let live," let's give the strident critics the benefit of the doubt just as we would the mother who decides to kill her unborn child.

Years ago before abortion was legal, I volunteered at an illegal abortion clinic in New Orleans. I noticed that many of the women who marched out front were the same ones who brought their daughters in the back door at night.

Sylvia, I think you are anti-abortion. Your last sentence talks about killing an unborn child, when all that is happening is a mistake is being rectified.

I am also quite sure I regret quiting a job I had years ago, I regret a very horrid marriage to a man, I regret many things and yet none of them are undoable...life can easly be a series of regrets, of course some women will regret it, but I doubt far less than those who have regrets on a spouse or lover, or other decesions...

The reality is, its my body - I want to be able to do with it what I please, regretable or not.

Abortion is a tragedy in any case. If people like to screw around without taking proper precautions then they should accept responsibility for their actions.
Killing the life inside of them is not the awnser.
I feel for women who have to to that as it would not be an easy decision and the consequences she will face for doing such a thing,well lets not even go there.
