Breath of life

It’s that season in the United States when some folks roll out the “real Christian” card and it’s usually around a woman’s right to choose. I hope most folks choose life. I’m glad my Mom chose life. Even with its ups and downs it’s been a great life. That being said I do support a woman’s right to choose. There are many who assert that life begins at conception and while that may be their belief I believe that life begins at first breath. I used to work in labor and delivery forty some years ago while serving in the United States Navy and babies had to take their first breath. Some babies had difficulty and required extra help and we were there to assist them. Breath is the miracle of life. All living things breathe therefore breath is life.

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. — Genesis 2:7

  1. This seems a strange argument. In this case, science trumps mere belief. A new life begins at the moment of conception – that’s science. Denying that is to deny science.

  2. Yes, life begins at conception…just ask any expectant mother, when she feels the baby kicking and moving around at about the 6-7 month in the womb! It’s totally a miracle!!!
