I agree with you. The religious part always fascinated me. The bible specifially states that a fetus does not have the same legal rights as a living breathing person according to biblical law.
Exodus 21 22-24
“If people are fighting and hit a pregnant woman and she has a miscarriage but there is no serious injury to the woman, the offender must be fined whatever the woman’s husband demands and the court allows. 23 But if there is serious injury or the woman dies, you are to take life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.''
This biblical passage clearly states that the life of a fetus does not have the same legal protections as the life of the mother. I've always found that interesting. Thanks for posting.
