But like it said before. If there is a God, he's the biggest abortionist of them all since 15-20% of recorded pregnancies end in miscarriage. By the church's logic then God is the one who aborted them, assuming the woman wasn't a crack head or something.
Once again, abortion implies intentional ending of the life. I can't presume, and I don't think many mainstream Christians presume, that God actively ends the life of conceived children. At least, I've never heard that doctrine. When it comes to natural occurrences, and miscarriages must fit in that category (as do tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.), it is far too presumptuous to hold that God involves himself with them.
