    But they count on people not being able to respond. That is in keeping with the jars of clay metaphor, and does not conflict with my point. Our bodies are earthen vessels formed by god. But they are not alive until life is breathed into them.

    And anyway, that's one verse, in conflict with A) an abortion ritual and B) the fact that induced premature birth is considered loss of property, not killing, by the ancient legal code.

    The bible isn't consistent, but they have one line from a psalm, and I have the Abrahmic code.

    An Fhirinn an aghaidh an t'Saoghail. (The truth against the world.) Is treasa tuath na tighearna. (The common people are mightier than the lords.)
