Debates are full of gray area, as are moral issues. One time I overheard two people arguing abortion cases. One parson argued that any life is a life, regardless in the eyes of god. Obviously this is polarized to a Catholic viewpoint in their belief with god. The other side simply stuck with the right to choose what happens to their (women’s) own bodies. A teacher overheard this argument, and asked them both; What if a catholic girl of 15 were raped? She is Catholic so obviously the child is gods and despite having been through the worst possible experience, she must now raise this child whom she may only have contempt for.
