When Does Life Begin?

 

When does life begin? It's an all important to question that determines when a baby is given the rights described in the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The abortion argument is really silly because they play around with the concept of life and when a fetus actually becomes a human being. It all comes down to the question, "How do you know when a baby’s life begins?" This is not a biological question. In fact, biology has nothing to do with it. The answer is so simple that a child can understand it and he doesn’t know the first thing about biology but adults just can't seem to grasp it.

Everyone can safely agree that the baby is alive on the day it is born. But what about the day before that? Life doesn’t begin incrementally. It’s not like the baby was any more alive on the day he was born than the day before. Conception is a radical event that only happens once in a human’s existence and it’s so simple that anyone can understand it. But people do not want to hear it. It’s the proverbial elephant in the room that abortion advocates don’t want to talk about but we need to stand up for life because it’s the right thing to do.

“…judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” (Isaiah 59:14-16)
