Life beginning at conception is a well defined Christian viewpoint.
True, and there are things i believe that atheists also believe in. I can still derive to that point without going at it from a Christian or Atheist point of view.
It could develop into a child, but hasn't.
So again you get back to concept as the first union of necessary things to create life. Without conception there will be no child. To me that is just the clear cut moment life has form, as given normal conditions it grows into a walking, talking human.
The ability to terminate that process before an actual cognizant child
So would you say that being a cognizant child is what dictates whether it is a life or not? If so why... what makes that more valuable than any earlier point in development? At what point is abortion no longer an option due to infringing on a child's life (abortion surely is not in the best interest of any child - poor or sick)?
Ill stop at that as i think clearly defining when life begins is the crux of this debate.
I have taken time to go through some old threads to where they slip into controversy. it's usually don or kev, almost never jimmy
Thank you. I really do try to never personally insult someone. Years back i would have but i am trying to be better.
