    ..........But, warning, if you look seriously at science to re-examine abortion you may jeopardize your current platform and its short-term political force. For over 150 years scientists have known a new human individual comes into being from the union of sperm and egg at fertilization. That is not theology. It is not religion. It is not Republican. It is science.

    If as a Party you pursue with Senator Obama and Speaker Pelosi some clarity about the status of the human embryo (a question they both consider important), you will eventually have to make a decision. You will either decide pre-born babies have rights because modern embryologists say they, too, are unique human individuals, or you will be forced to take the very hard line of saying some human individuals just don’t deserve human rights, for whatever sordid reason..........

    I don't condone abortion but my theological view is you are born into life. It comes with your first breath and leave with your last (giving up the ghost).

    That was a powerful letter. I hope the Dems will take it seriously.

    Is the human sperm alive? Is the human egg alive? If you answer yes to these questions then how can you say that the union of two living human organisms in the womb is not alive until it takes its first breath? You are dismissing God's grand design for how the living child is carried inside the womb for 9 months.

    How can an unborn child whos heart begins its first beat at 13 weeks not be considered alive. Then again slaves were at one time considered not human at one time as well. The depravity of man is fierce.

    But it does not subsist because it needs the connection to it's mother.

    Again dismissing God's grand design.

    As Christians we do not subsist because we need the connection to the Father. And the umbilical cord is the Holy Ghost.

    Brother I was just kidding. I lay no claim to any truths from scripture. Give God the glory.

    What of my friend's baby who was born at 1 lb. 5 oz. at 27 weeks and couldn't TAKE a first breath? He was immediately put on a respirator. Was he not alive?

    So does a newborn babe. So does a 2 month old - and a 4 month old. My babies all would have died had they not had the connection to their mother.
