AnewMe, thank you.
Anyway: I am surprised at how many JWs, once they are deprogrammed, take the exact opposite stance in all matters of values, morals and ethics. Once they aren`t dubs anymore, they just view everything that has to do with morals and ethics as metaphysical garbage. Personally, I don`t even believe in God, but I still believe in ethics: Something is right, and something is wrong. And then there are all these things that are somewhere inbetween. I believe abortion is one of those things "inbetween". Of course, it is the womans body, and she has rights. But on the other hand, the featus has rights to. It`s not just a "germ" or a "burger", it is the "seed of life", a tiny creature with enormous potential. It has "value in itself", in my opinion. The problem with ethical considerations, is that sometimes, individuals that both has ethical rights, crash. This is the case in all pregnancy-situations, in which the featus is unwanted. In my opinion, if the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest, or if there is a serious illness in the featus, or in the mother, of course, the mothers rights have to be emphasised more than the featus. In other cases, I think abortion is disgusting. (And yeah yeah, I know I`m a guy, and many "pro-choicers" see this issue as an issue only women has the right to have an opinion on. But I have been in this kind of situation myself, so I believe I have a right to speak, despite the fact that I have a penis).
Abortion is, and always was, a question for ethical consideration. It`s not that easy, regardless of a pre-dubs new-found atheist views/freedom. It`s not necessary to "throw the baby out with the water", so to speak.
