Thoughts on abortion, religion, and morality
« Reply #300 on: June 02, 2019, 11:52:31 AM »
I'm not convinced that you are as well versed as you consider yourself to be.
I think @aygart has a very good track record of knowing what he's talking about here, especially when it comes to halacha. You on the other hand have no such record and have done nothing in this thread to convince anyone that you have a very good grasp of the degree of nuance involved here and in most complicated halachic issues.

that's what the vast majority of abortions are.
This applies to you as well
You are so busy arguing that you don't even know what you are arguing about.

Not my point. I'm not convinced that you are as well versed as you consider yourself to be.
That would make sense considering that you do not know how well versed i consider myself to be nor how well versed i actually am.

You have yet to bring a source for your assertion that the majority are as strict as you are making it.

Maybe you should take a step back and see exactly what you are arguing about.

Nope. It actually shows otherwise at least with the way you are presenting the opinion of R Moshe.

I've been advancing my point throughout this thread so it isn't ambiguous at all.

Wrong. His opinion is clear in his writings, which I made reference to above. As far as learning about how severe the majority opinion views almost all abortions, Google can enlighten you

Just to be clear,are there any cases other than sakonas nefoshos where you are feeling abortions can be permitted any time after conception?

Mostly the liberal outlook of many on this thread which colors their opinion even on issues that are primarily halachic.

Furthermore, the view that any minority opinion carries equal weight against a majority opinion, particularly when world renown
halachic heavyweights are on the other side.

That is actually indicative of someone pushing a liberal agenda, not someone serious about what the Torah has to say on the topic.

Happy to reiterate. I said if you want confirmation about what the majority opinion is, which includes the heavy weight poskim, feel free to google.

I've been ignoring, because unlike you I'm wary of getting into the fine details of such a sensitive and weighty issue on a public forum. The fact that it doesn't bother you is not my fault. That said, I'm happy to keep on stating that in general abortion is murder as per the psak of leading Poskim and that I'm overjoyed that some states are finally taking a serious stand against it.
