Richard Dawkins - On Abortion, Tadpoles, Rape, Cows, Murder and Sheep

Please note that this essay is being moved and will be shortly reposted at True Freethinker


  1. excellent post
    I linked it in my "missing links" for today

    search DAWKINS at my blog for my posts on him

  2. Thank you for linking to me. I wrote you once about my “Choose Ch’ai” t-shirts here.

  3. "The National Abortion Federation reports "Incidents of Violence and Disruption Against Abortion Providers" in the U.S. and Canada. 2 Their data from 1989 to 2004 is shown below. The number of incidents of picketing is also shown:"

    There have been at least 23 attempts at directly killing abortion doctors since up until 2004. Oddly you omit this fact. Only 7 were killed because the rest escaped the known intentions of the convicted killer or did not die because their wounds were stitched together in hospitals.

    Many fires and bombings were also stopped. Again many which you left out - oddly. Evidence clearly demonstrated by materials found at their homes or caught in the act many intended to follow through with their actions and are now in jail for their obvious intentions(or were in jail possibly released as of date).

    The fact no innocent victims were not killed or blown up during these fires or bombings was 100% luck. There is no evidence in any of these crimes effort was made to clear buildings of men, women or children

    Murders have taken place since 2004 - several
    (there were at least 60 threats in the area) - it leaves one to wonder how many more murders will take place?

  4. Well, evolution is not a "worldview", so your last paragraph is completely erroneous...

  5. sure it is LOL

    How you VIEW the WORLD is based on your set of basic prenmises and beliefs.

    Everyone has a "World View" - if evolution is not part of your WORLD VIEW then what is it?

    Argumentative, silly. Of course it is a world view.

  6. Thank you for you bold stand against all this monkey business.

    You page in linked on my front page.

    Ten Commandments.

    Nature has shown how efficient it can be in its control of population. Smash a tsunami here or shake an earthquake there.
    We can have birth control and try to guarantee quality of life.
    Opposers to contraceptive methods express a preference for "natural" methods of population limitation, and a natural method is exactly what we are going to get. It is called starvation
    So, are you implying you'd rather have nature do the job with famine and disease instead?

  8. Would you have supported abortion in your case or do you only support the brutal, dismembering murder of other healthy, beautiful, innocent and defenseless human babies?

    Also, you are forcing the content of the post to amount to population control which has nothing to do with what I wrote or what Dawkins stated.

    If the people who had 50,000,000 abortions in the USA alone and since Roe v Wade alone did so due to concerns for overpopulation; please present your evidence.

    Otherwise, please stop supporting murder.

  9. It's interesting that around 85% of the U.S. population claims to be Christian yet all those abortions have still happened. Maybe Christianity is just a label that people stick with because they afraid to think for themselves?? If the Catholic Church would start living in modern times and say it's ok to use birth control... that would be a start. Christianity is fragmented and panders for power just like any other organization. And what about the fact that most pregnancies are self-aborted? Does that make god a murderer? I guess it would if there were a god or gods...

  10. Brad,
    Thanks for your thoughts.
    Indeed, that 85% are Christian means that Christianity is more watered down and that for some it is merely a social sort of label.
    However, if they are “Christians” and also commit murder then they are obviously not afraid to think for themselves.
    Do not do as they may and confuse a hierarchic organization with biblical Christianity or the biblical “church.”
    Are you, like Dawkins, Harris, et al., in favor of abortion and do you, like they, shrug it off even when you know that it is painful?
