    If an immortal soul exists, and is granted at conception, and persists after death, how is a soul some sort of metaphysical ethical bargaining chip with regard to abortion?
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    You need to get it printed on a t-shirt, word for word.

    If you send the soul back to God too early he gets offended and punishes us by making people gay.

    Rofl, omg, it's true. If all that's true and heaven exists, then being aborted is the ultimate shortcut. Win the game in one move. Go straight to heaven. Never have to worry about going to jail or collecting 200 bucks because you'll never need money and in heaven you won't have that pesky free will causing you to commit crimes and shit.

    Which will result in fewer abortions. Brilliant strategy god!

    This just goes to show that the notion of a soul is great for some (dark) humor in cases like these, but when taken seriously, it just complicates everything (as is the fate of all delusional thinking).

    Heh.
