Hey Guys... so recently I was on a site (can't remember the name) that was anti-abortion - which I am myself. But as I was reading down the comments there was one that really stuck with me. The man said, "As a Christian I am against abortion and would discourage people form it, but as an American I am for women's rights to choose whether or not they want to go through with it." This comment completely perplexed me. I was always of the notion that American values, i.e., the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights were riding right along the same values of Christianity... am I wrong in seeing this? To my understanding the whole reason abortion became a debate, legally speaking, is the part that says "Every man is given these inalienable rights: the right to LIFE, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness." As you might have guessed the question that was on everyone's mind in 1973, during the Supreme Court trial of Roe vs. Wade, was this... is the unborn child (aka fetus) technically alive? My answer would be yes... the baby is most definitely alive, whether or not he/she is breathing. But my question to you guys is do you think that American values and Christian values are borderline the same or dramatically different?
