• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Do Democratic presidents cause fewer abortions to occur?

    The part that I see people abuse the most is this one:

    You'll see people talk about how drastic a drop there was in abortions during the Clinton administration, and how this proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that his policies were far more effective than any others at reducing the abortion rate. But this drop from 1997 to 1998 came primarily because of the loss of several reporting areas (including the entire state of California) and accounted for a drop of several hundred thousand abortions alone. If you account for that, the numbers are far more consistent across the board.

    LOL, as if that was even one of their goals. If it would have happened, it would have been mere chance.

    Strong social safety nets, regardless of who happens to be President, result in lower abortion rates. Abortion rates in the US don’t tend to hinge upon how strong or loose laws happen to be or who is in office, and certainly don’t reflect public religious sentiment. When raising a child is made easier, there is less temptation to abort that child. That is why abortion rates have been on a steady decline for decades. Attempting to tie this trend to specific politicians or parties seems quite dishonest, no matter which side one worships.
