Which god was opposing abortion on Tuesday?

Sent to "The Star", Johannesburg, on Thu 16/04/2009, never published.

John Zenstra (Star letters, Tuesday 14 April) says that God Almighty is vehemently opposed to abortion.

He forgot to mention which god of the many on offer –Zeus, Jupiter, Krishna, Jehovah, Jesus, Allah, to name but a few– this is, or to cite where the god makes this statement.  Could he please bring his god to a public press conference so that the matter can be clarified once and for all?

If he can't, why not admit that the above gods (and all the rest) are convenient fictions, because it sounds more impressive to blame his morality on a god, instead of taking responsibility for working it out himself?
