This question refers to this post.
You once said you forgive your mother for having an abortion because she regrets it. Would you still forgive her if she strangled her newborn and regretted it? If you really think the born and unborn are equal this should be easy to answer.
And it is easy to answer. Yes, I would forgive her. If someone killed one of my own children and later regretted it, recognizing that what they did was wrong and fully owned their crime and were truly remorseful, then I would forgive them. Not because I’m a Christian (I’m an atheist), but because I’m a human being.
That does not, however, mean that they should not face justice and pay their debt to my family, our society, and humanity as a whole.
