  •  This is a weak argument. "Breath" is symbolic, (1+ / 0-)

    obviously. Unless you want to believe that God is anthropomorphic and actually breathes.
       The counterargument: Psalms 139:13-16
    "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.."

    or Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

    Bottom line: You aren't going to win a Bible quoting contest. The case for legal abortion is a legal-Constitutional one.
