A comment I posted on a Facebook discussion about abortion:*
“What is human LIFE really? Is it all the cells in the body? Is it the heart? Is it the brain? It’s not any one of those things, because you can have all of those things in a body, and still not have LIFE! The life is in the breath, which came directly from God at Creation (see Genesis 2:7).
When there is breath, there is LIFE. You might say, “Well, babies don’t breath until they’re born.” But they do breath. Babies are connected to the mother by the umbilical cord, and through that cord the mother’s breathing and pumping heart send oxygenated blood to the baby. This is the baby’s way getting the oxygen he or she needs–the breath of LIFE! So, as long as the mother is breathing, that baby has LIFE!
And while there is life, there is potential. That baby could grow up to be a wonderful person, to save someone’s life, or to lead a nation! If you don’t want it, there are many people out there who do. Just as it is wrong to destroy LIFE after birth, so it is wrong to destroy unborn LIFE. It’s not your life to decide whether or not to end it! It’s the baby’s God-given life!
I know that many of you won’t agree with me, and that some of you may post negative comments towards me. But that doesn’t matter! These are LIVES we’re talking about! And I’m here to fight to save them! I’m not judging any of you! I can’t stop what you do with your lives. But I hope and pray that I can at least stop one person from ending a LIFE that is not theirs to end!”
