I'm sorry, but morality dos not belong to you, or me, for that matter. It is derived from the norms of the entire society, and since i don't think that this is an issue where the society is divided pretty evenly, you cant just go ahead and say its immoral. If let's say, 4 out of 10 people say something is OK, you cant say it's immoral. You can make it illegal, but thats copletley different.

Morality does not change, values may, but not morality.

Hmmm, so you can use whats considered moral today to judge actions taken 2000 years ago?

So why cant I kill freely as somone would in an abortion. After all, could I not make a case that the quality of my life improved because of the life I ended? Just somthing to think about...

For the record I go to the Pro-Life marches every year.
You can kill a person legally. You can't murder them. I will not get into a religious debate, but any bible I have ever read reads "Murder" .. not "kill." There is a huge difference.

I agree, and I know what the ancient Israeli's meant when they stated "Thou shalt not kill" would better translate into "Though shalt not murder" in today's world.

I still think Americans are gonna take this issue differently than others. But the "thou shalt not kill" thing is true in this crazy modern world.

Hmmm...In the biblical text(hebrew), the word is "tirtzach", which is understood by most hebrew speakers as "murder".

I thought Jewish people didnt read the bible? Or that they had another holy book.

I always heard it as kill, but either way some people are gonna look at abortion as murder, and some will look at it as killing.
