The hatred of biological advancement and a womens right to choose

Why do we see so many Christians outside abortion clinics? Why were there 790 cases of assault on abortion clinic workers in 2001? Why do people hate the teen mothers who get abortions? The main reason is simple, there is a belief among the more conservative Christians that the soul enters the fetus at the moment of conception and that if you get an abortion, you are killing one of “god’s children”. But if we wish to pursue this humbly, we must ask the next question. Is there even a soul? Is there any evidence for the existence of a thing? The soul is defined as thus: A soul, in certain spiritual, philosophical, and psychological traditions, is the incorporeal essence of a person or living thing. But there is no evidence that a soul actually exists and thus we must disregard it from this discussion. Now there is nothing wrong with peaceful protests (although the anti-abortion kind can get…odd) such as these:

I am a strong supporter of protests, but the problem is when things get violent and that is a prime example of religious extremism at it’s finest and it must be stopped if women are to be guaranteed the right to choose how to live their life. Now I would like to turn a bit away from abortions and into stem cell research. The same principle of why Christians don’t like abortions applies here. So as we have seen, there is no evidence for the soul yet people still use it to kill one of most influential forms of biological research. Stem cells can be used as a form of regenerative medicine that can grow new organs. They can be used for drug testing so we don’t need to risk human lives thus helping us cure diseases such as AIDS. They can also help us understand the process of growth in the human body. So why is there so much controversy over the use of stem cells? Because people think fetuses obtain a soul at the moment of conception. But that’s not the scary part. The scary part is that these are the types of people that we have elected into office. The same people who would like to stop our advancement in biology and who wan’t to get intelligent design taught in the class rooms. But why you ask? Because their holy book says so…
