Abortion!? WTF

Interesting that you quote Mark there. Look at what else Jesus sanctions apart from the execution of kiddy fiddlers:

"And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me; it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he were cast into the sea. [42] And if thy hand scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life, maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into unquenchable fire: [43] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished. [44] And if thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off. It is better for thee to enter lame into life everlasting, than having two feet, to be cast into the hell of unquenchable fire:"

It seems our Lord has no problem with maiming and physical damage as a tool for conquering sin and iniquity.
Thanks for the reminder.

THAT is a perfect example of hyperbole! Do you really think Our Lord is advocating self abuse?

Again, it is a "better than" situation. Any temporal harm is worth it if it removes obstacles to eternal life. Anything which is bad should be cut off. In practice, a "hand" is only under the control of the person's will for it to be a scandal (agent of evil).

Cutting off anything which is scandalous, no matter how useful it is otherwise, is what we are told to do to the extreme. That one's hand would be a scandal (or any other body part) is impossible in itself.
