In summary, the flow of my argument is this:
- rights are things that we are born with, and not give due to our privileged access to technology and applied science
- If a man or a woman wants to prevent conception, there are alternatives outside of abortion, including sterilization or making oneself an eunuch for career or other purposes
- If a man or woman wants to delay conception, then there are also alternatives made possible by technology and applied science.
For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others--and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it."
For thus says the LORD, "To the eunuchs who keep My sabbaths, And choose what pleases Me, And hold fast My covenant, 5To them I will give in My house and within My walls a memorial, And a name better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name which will not be cut off.
Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
- saving eggs for later,
- having nature/God decide or
- just having the child.
