Who would Abort?

...

A disbeliever, whether he aborts or does not abort his progeny in the womb, it is one and the same.


Peace

  :o

14:26 And the example of a bad word is like a tree which has been uprooted from the surface of the earth, it has nowhere to settle.

How does one 100% know a believer from a disbeliever? Are children born believers or disbelievers based on their parents?

6:164 Say: "Shall I seek other than GOD as a Lord when He is the Lord of everything?" And every soul earns what is for it, and none will carry the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return and He will inform you of what you disputed in.

Either one respects human life and human rights, or one doesn't. If there was a binary choice between saving the life of 2 self-proclaimed disbelievers or 1 believer, would you prefer 1 life over 2?

41:34 Not equal are the good and the bad response. You shall resort to the one which is better. Thus, the one who used to be your enemy, may become your best friend.

A disbeliever can become a believer, ISA. :) Do you suppose that one only invites believers?

41:33 And who is better in saying than he who invites to GOD, and does good works, and says: "I am one of those who have submitted."

ALLAH knows best.

@Huruf: Thank you for your kind words!  :sun:

You keep speaking of Women. I am speaking about the unborn child.  That Women does NOT have a right to KILL HER CHILD. That is murder. Anyone who commits murder should be prosecuted.

@TheQuranAloneRevolution:

If you value human life, seek to help others, not harm others. Banning abortion in all cases would MURDER over 2,000,000 women each year from ectopic pregnancies alone and maim millions more.

Here is a site to an organization that works to reduce maternal and infant mortality around the world. Assist those that want to be helped, if saving human life is your aim.

http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXMGIpI4E/b.8585863/k.9F31/State_of_the_Worlds_Mothers.htm

A zygote is not a human, a blastula is not a human, an embryo is still not a human, and a fetus may or may not be considered human. Although it is an emotional subject, that doesn't give others the right to interfere in a matter that is ultimately between a woman, a lawful partner (if there is one), and the Almighty. Ever hear of reproductive freedom? You are trampling on it.

42:42 The error is upon those who oppress the people, and they aggress in the land without cause. For these will be a painful retribution.

Is abortion worse than polytheism?

98:6 Those who rejected from the people of the Book and the polytheists are in the fires of Hell abiding therein, those are the worst of creation.

Yet...monotheists are not called to aggress against polytheists; we are told to NOT aggress and NOT oppress.

5:87 O you who believe, do not make unlawful the good things that GOD has made lawful to you, and do not aggress; GOD does not love the aggressors.


28:56 You cannot guide whom you love. But it is GOD who guides whom He wills; and He is fully aware of those who receive the guidance.

If one can't guide those that are loved, so much more the case against forcing understanding (even if it is correct) on total strangers!

From a social perspective, imprisoning/killing women for abortion doesn't help society in the least. Are you aware that about half of all pregnancies end in spontaneous abortion (also called miscarriage)--often before a woman is aware she is even pregnant?

Pregnancy in itself is risky and life altering. In some countries, greater than 10% of pregnancies cause maternal death.

What about when contraception is used proactively, and the contraception fails? Are you willing to raise and support the future child/children? How many children have YOU directly adopted/fostered?  :hmm

What about an ectopic pregnancy--very rarely capable of creating a child and fatal about half of the time to a mother when untreated? Ectopic pregnancy happens in about 2% of all pregnancies. Disallow abortion in all cases, and you've just doomed 1% of all pregnant women to die a painful death from ectopic pregnancies alone--over 2,000,000 people a year. But you value life, right?

The conviction that abortion is unlawful in all cases is cold comfort to the families of women that die to forced unavailability.   

What about the mother who didn't know she was pregnant, was given drugs to save her life that mean that in the 5% chance that a baby survives, it will have no limbs and an IQ of around 15 for its limited life? Oh, and the same mother will probably die because of her heart condition if she allows the pregnancy to continue. Should she be forced to die for YOUR beliefs--leaving behind a husband and children?

What about the 10 year old rape victim, now pregnant? Should she be forced to harbor an unwanted parasite? Should she also be forced to care for it until it is of age?

There are many legitimate scenarios why a woman may want an abortion. If abortions are illegal, that doesn't mean that no abortions will occur.  :nope: It means that women will seek abortions illegally, or will induce abortions themselves. Tell me, do you want women dying of gangrene or other disease--or is it better to not impose personal beliefs and set barriers between people and the medical care they seek?

Think on it. The Almighty does NOT require our intercession in this matter. If you were female and pregnant, you would ISA make the best decision...but we can't take away that decision from others without first becoming wrongdoers.

10:109 And follow what is being inspired to you and be patient until GOD judges. And He is the best of judges.

ALLAH knows best.

I personally disagree with abortion. I don't believe that abortion is usually a good choice, except when carrying a child to term would kill the mother.

17:31 And do not kill your children out of concern of poverty; We shall provide for you and them. The killing of them was a big mistake.

On the other hand, I would not deny others their choice.

2:256 There is no compulsion in the system; the proper way has been clarified from the wrong way. Whoever rejects evil, and believes in GOD, indeed he has taken grasp of the strongest hold that will never break. GOD is Hearer, Knower.

Society seems to be more interested in vilifying women than in making sure that men are held accountable for children. Single mothers have a hard life...especially if a child's father is a "deadbeat dad" that doesn't contribute to the welfare of a child. I respect women who, through no fault of their own, raise a child by themselves.

2:233 And the divorced mothers are allowed to suckle their children two full years, if they wish to complete the suckling. And the man for whom the child is born is responsible for both their provisions and clothing equitably. A soul is not burdened except with what it can bear. No mother shall be harmed because of her child, nor shall a father be harmed because of his child. And for the guardian is the same requirement. So if they wish to separate out of mutual agreement and counsel, then there is no sin upon them. And if you want to hire nursing mothers, then there is no sin upon you if you return what you have been given equitably. And be aware of GOD, and know that GOD is watching over what you do.

There is an aphorism that when a person points a finger at another person, they point four fingers back at themself. Rather than point a finger at women who abort, lift a finger to help. Marrying a single mother or adopting are some examples of ways to help.

ALLAH knows best.

@Kumar:  :welcome:

Monotheism is more important than religion. What is religion except a tool? For all too many people, religion has replaced the Almighty in the psyche.

There are commonalities among religions/systems, such as the Golden Rule.

http://www.teachingvalues.com/goldenrule.html
http://hipstermonk.com/the-golden-rule-a-list-of-two-dozen-versions/


Even where religions differ, it is often in terms of rites.

22:67 For every nation We have established rites which they are to fulfill. So do not let the matter fall into dispute. And call upon your Lord, for you are on a guidance which is straight.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

does it not say in the quran that it is forbidden? why come nigh to it?

The Qur'an states that consumption of pork meat is forbidden under ordinary circumstances to followers of the Deen. Likewise, followers of the Deen are told to abstain from praying while drunk/intoxicated. The substances themselves are not unlawful.

Since the substances are not unlawful, and there is no injunction against it, it stands to reason that there is no problem with working at a place that sells them--nor in buying from such a place. Not eating swine flesh is a rite; other people have their own rites to fulfill.

22:67 For every nation We have established rites which they are to fulfill. So do not let the matter fall into dispute. And call upon your Lord, for you are on a guidance which is straight.

@TruthSeeker101:  :welcome:

For many, this site is a source of support and interaction. If being a monotheist is a challenge, then it is a worthy challenge! :) There are definitely more monotheists than those who follow Qur'an only--don't forget about these people, because they are truly brothers and sisters in faith.

It is not rites that make a monotheist.

Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

I don't claim that this or that is haram or halal; no human has the right to make such a claim.

Imo, it depends on context. Mentioning others in prayer seems harmless so long as we are not asking those others for help. I would not personally single out any one Prophet or Messenger to ask the Almighty to bless--Peace upon them all!

May ALLAH see fit to guide all seekers. Are the seekers being worshipped?  :nope:

Discuss Latest News/Events / Re: Ukraine cold war

Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

I agree that self determination should be honored--but contracts should also be honored. Russia is indulging itself at the expense of its neighbors--and at the expense of its economy and world reputation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_weapons_and_Ukraine

When the Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons, Russia, United States, and other world powers agreed to keep their hands off the Ukraine. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budapest_Memorandum_on_Security_Assurances

Maybe it is time for the Ukraine to regain nuclear weapons status...why have a unilateral contract?

What happens if this repeats in Estonia, Latvia, or Belarus? What was Russia's position on Chechnya and its independence?  :hmm

ALLAH knows best.

General Issues / Questions / Re: Lets Talk About SEX and More SEX!!!!
« on: March 24, 2014, 08:47:15 PM »
Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

@DistortedHuman/J.R.:  :welcome:

Science has no laws; only theories. One study hardly covers all of the ground regarding sex.

What about pregnancies and STDs? Do contraceptives ever fail or have serious side effects?  :yes What has been the availability of contraceptive technology throughout history?  :hmm Are there health risks to women from pregnancy?

Safe sex is a misnomer, just like nonlethal weapons. There are less-lethal weapons, and there is safer sex, but there are inherent risks with both sex and weapons.

Marriage means different things to different people. To some, commitment is the same as marriage (common law marriage, for instance). Marriage predates marriage licenses, to be sure!

Studies have also shown that people in marriages have more regular sex than people not in marriages. Without marriage, any children arising from sex are likely to have fewer resources available to them; likewise for the single mother. Marriage protects people--it protects a male's interests and a female's interests, as well as the interests of a community.

What is the case against marriage?

ALLAH knows best.
