Having read the Bible and the New Testament cover to cover a few times it is hard for me to think of a book with more rules on sex. Nor one more misogynist.   Women are stoned for the smallest sex related offenses and the only man killed was condemned for using the withdrawal method.     Every aspect of when a woman can or cannot have sex and with whom is prescribed, and yet one thing is conspicuously absent: Abortion.   Nowhere is it condemned. It is not even mentioned. And yet we know from the Egyptians that abortion was a common practice long before the Bible and certainly the New Testament were being written and codified.

So my simple question of the day is: If you are against abortion in the name of the lord – doesn’t that mean you are putting words into the Lord’s mouth and therefore violating the 4th commandment not to take the Lord’s name in vain?
