actually, it is more likely that the fact he was brought up ina tight church family would have a completet effect on him as an adult. had he been brought up in a moderate secular family, he probably would not have ended up such a vocal component of atheism. his upbringing is directly related to who he is now.Case in point: Richard Dawkins was raised in the Church of England yet this has had absolutely no effect on his adult life where is perhaps the most outspoken atheist there is.

most abortions are done only with the thought that the living, can go on to live happily ever after.I thought abortion was all about ensuring everybody lives happily every after?
