  •  The Bible says (14+ / 0-)

    very clearly, that life begins with first breath. That is, when the baby can breathe on its own. So you should ask them why they are ignoring this, and trying to force their version of religion on others..

      They do not answer.   They just scream and revile louder.  Their stalking and harassing behavior needs to be made illegal, as it is in Canada.

    •  Well, it's not that explicit. But when Adam was (0+ / 0-)

      created, and formed fully grown and complete by God from the Creation's fertile soil and water, he wasn't a human being until God breathed the breath of life into his nostrils and gave him a soul in His image.  

      We 'officially' name children once they are born, not at conception, and mark the birth as the legally certified beginning of independent life. In the Church, we often add an additional 'Christian' name when baptised, reflecting the 'new creation' of a soul into which the Holy Spirit (holy breath) now co-inhabits.

      When you talk to many of the most rabid 'pro-life' Christians, it's this 'second birth' which they regard as the most important and only one that really matters in the end.

      When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
