Troubled by what abortion means?
A priest years ago applied logic when answering the question, “When does human life begin?”
The priest said the answer the question of when life begins is answered by asking, “When does human life end.”
Medically, death occurs when there is the cessation of vital bodily functions. Essentially someone is considered dead when the heart stops beating and the brain stops firing.
If one applies Aristotelian logic to the question “when does death occur,” and applies it to the question “when does life begin,” the answer is plain to see.
Human life begins when the heart starts beating and the brain starts firing.
Consequently, science has determined a baby’s heart begins to form immediately after fertilization. The brain begins to form immediately after fertilization as well.
Therefore life begins immediately after fertilization.
The extinguishing of a baby’s life immediately after fertilization for reasons other than the health of the child or the health of the mother is murder.
Baby murder in America is taxpayer-funded and government-sanctioned.
Abortion is also big business for Planned Parenthood.
But it may be helpful to consider these questions of life and death over a glass of red wine and a soft bed of arugula with bleu cheese crumbles and a sprinkling of pine nuts and fig slices.
Perhaps if Planned Parenthood could add “souls” to the rate schedule of aborted baby body parts being sold on the auction block like slaughtered beef, they would be able reap even greater profits.
However, there is a problem with this opportunity.
How could a person who has no soul and engages in the practice of abortion on-demand possibly be able to recognize the soul in anyone else?
