No basis for religious arguments against abortion
To The Editor:
Abortion should not be an issue in laws regarding our nation. A fetus is not a child. You must be breathing to be a human being. Think about it – if a fetus is born and doesn’t breathe, is it a life?
Read your Bible – there is nothing in it about abortion, nor did Jesus say anything about abortion. The Bible does however say when life begins in Genesis 2:7 – "Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."
Your life is in your breath. Nobody knows what this divine essence is that gives us life, but we do know that life begins when you begin to breathe and ends when you stop breathing.
So concentrate on children already here – like the over 400,000 in foster care and the thousands of immigrant children so cruelly taken from their parents and put into detention centers.
