I've never heard of someone "glorifying" abortion and I doubt this happens. I'd find it more than distasteful and unwise, but then I doubt this actually happens.
Hong wu wrote:The abstinence camp believes that self-control in sexual matters is socially and spiritually beneficial.That's really great until you do have sex, the birth control fails, or you are in a situation where you unwisely forget or overlook it, and you end up with a pregnancy. Most people do not engage in abstinence because it's simply not as easy as it sounds.

I do not disagree with you on other things, and I have never known people to use abortion as birth control. That would be wrong, on many levels. Yet, people are human, and do make stupid decisions and mistakes. We have to remember that.

However, Pagans do not want to admit that they are into that sort of thing, so they manufacture this "women's rights" narrative and yammer on endlessly about it.Melodramatic clap-trap! Did a pagan feminist hurt your feelings?

Comparing not having sex, to not killing people is ridiculous. One doesn't harm people(I am talking about consensual sex between adults, not rape), while the other does. You're comparing apple to sofas.
