Abortion Files: The Natural and Biblical explanation of when life begins

The Breath of Life

A baby is TOTALLY dependent on it's mother in utero and lives in a completely different world.

It's really not brain surgery!

I cannot understand why ‘evangelical’ scholars and the lay evangelical Christians do not seem to understand when life begins. The principle is the same throughout the bible and nature. It resonates spiritually, also. The fact is that our life does not begin until we take our first breath and everything in nature and in the spirit world bears it out.

Let’s start at the beginning, shall we. There is the idea that is woven through our very nature that in order to live, we have to die. It is how, according to science and the Bible, the earth came to be. The only beings that did not have to go through this birth process in some way, if you believe the Bible, are Adam and Eve—and Eve’s birth is very close.

When God created Adam, according to the Bible, he created him out of clay. He then breathed into his nostrils THE BREATH OF LIFE. He then looked far and wide for a help-mete for Adam but could not find one. So,—WARNING: Here comes the first example of birth—he puts Adam into a DEEP sleep, extracts one of his ribs, and then creates Eve and breathes into her nostrils. Adam had to experience a type of death for Eve to live. You see where I am going with this. That clay had no soul or spirit. Stay with me!

So, the process repeats itself over and over starting with the day we are conceived. Babies cannot breathe. They are completely dependent on their mother’s lungs for the oxygen and her diet for nutrients. They are dependent on their mother for waste extraction. They do not poop and they do not pee, yet they are alive. They grow, they develop and they mature INSIDE their mother. And yes, they play and smile and probably cry and I bet there is not a mother on the planet who did not have some inkling of their child’s personality in the womb--some more than others.

As a matter of fact, and I know this because my daughter was premature, your lungs are one of the last thing that form on your body and the danger for most premature babies is that their lungs are not yet developed. The fact is that a baby can be fully formed, with everything functional, but if their lungs do not work, they will not live.

Think of the birth process, passing through the canal if you will, as a death. That is why it is so dangerous for all involved. It is the transition from being a dependent being, to being an independent being. Babies go from being completely enveloped in water and living in a liquid environment, where they are weightless, blind, deaf, and mute, to a world where they now are subject to gravity, the elements, and have sight, can hear, and develop speech. Who they were in the womb dies. That passage through the birth canal is dangerous for both the mother and the baby.

That is not the only time it happens in our lives. Our baby teeth die, so that we can get our permanent ones. The root dies so that the new tooth can live. We go through the process of puberty, where who we were as a child dies and we develop adult bodies and then we get wisdom teeth. As we age, our bodies slowly edge toward death. Sometimes our teeth fall out and our hair disappears. Those of us who had excellent vision, all of sudden need a little help seeing :-(. Women’s uterus’ die and they can no longer give birth. Some women feel that they are reborn after the actual death, menopause, is over. And we are not the only ones. It is prevalent throughout the rest of nature.

Seeds must germinate, or die, to become a plant. Caterpillars die to become butterflies. Bears actually die several times during their lifetime, hibernation. It is even spiritual. The very rebirth of a Christian is the passage from one life to the next. I believe, I know some of you do not, that death is another type of birth.

However, the passage from one life to another always depends on the process. This is also true in the spiritual world. If the process is not complete we will never take our first breath. For a baby, that process begins with his mother and starts with his life—when he takes his first independent breath.

I know some of you will say that GOD knew Jeremiah when he was in the womb. Well, yeah! I hope so. I knew my daughter years before she was born too. I literally and figuratively spoke this child into being. There are those days when I wish I had not. Ask anyone who knew me before I was a father. Once I knew her mother, I even knew her name. She still had to come. Her birth was so dangerous, that I almost lost my daughter and her mother. My ex-wife actually told us all goodbye. The birthing process is inherently dangerous for both mother and child. The key words in that passage in Jeremiah are "before I formed thee". There was a process, dependent on his mother, by which Jeremiah was FORMED. If Jeremiah had died before he was formed, God would have still known him, I believe, we would not have.

People will also say, you do not believe in abortion, so what if someone aborts your baby? How would you feel? They already have. I was 25 and she was 32. I had my suspicions, but was not sure she was pregnant. She aborted the baby in secret and told me she had a miscarriage because she was not ready to have a bi-racial child. She is a Christian and so am I. I never think of her negatively and if God knew Jeremiah, then he certainly knew this child. It saddens me that I did not.

The point is the most important person in the pregnancy and birthing process is the mother. It is a miracle! It is and should be her choice as to how the pregnancy begins and ends. PERIOD!

But even a baby, while still in the womb is still living, is it not?

I used to look at early abortions as a woman's right. Then I learned that abortion is largely about RACISM and CLASS CONSCIOUSNESS and is intended to limit population growth for African Americans and indigent whites. In fact, abortion is a form of black genocide. See this article: "Black Genocide - Maafa 21"

I know all about Margaret Sanger and Early Planned Parenthood. The thing people need to know is that most whites were racists during Sanger's lifetime. Abortion in our era is not about racism. Eugenics was racist and misogynistic. I don't like abortions, but I have no right to tell another person what to do with their bodies.

We can talk about several "Black Genocides", literally thousands of them.

And yes, babies are alive inside their mother's womb, but they cannot exist without their mom's and those that survive premature deaths end up, often, with lung problems.

By the way, it was Sanger's work with Eugenics and sterilization that you are talking about.

However, again, most whites had her same belief system, so telling me that Margaret Sanger was racists is nothing new, most people she knew would have been.

So the fact that a baby is alive in the mother's womb - when that life is intentionally ended, is that not killing or taking life away?

And yes, I too, know all about premature babies and lung problems as my daughter was born 11 weeks early and spent over 70 days in the NICU. She had to get her oxygen first from a ventilator then while living in an isolette.

So what is the difference when a baby is completely dependent on their mother while in the womb and a baby who is completely dependent on technology in order to live? If it is okay to kill a baby inside the womb completely dependent on their mother then according to your logic, it should be ok to also kill a baby who is dependent on oxygen from another source after they are born.

Thank you for raising the point about babies who depend on technology to live outside the womb, Cari Jean. Euthanasia of people with physical and mental disabilities do happen, and they will become more frequent as reverence for human life lessens.

Congress should vote to stop abortions at 20 weeks. That gives women roughly five months to decide what to do with "their" bodies. http://freebeacon.com/house-to-consider-late-term-...

You just proved my point. This is not a referendum on abortion. Abortion is about choice. It's about when life begins. I don't agree with abortion, but the choice is not mine. As a pregnant woman, what happens inside your body belongs to you and no one else. A child that is born is then subject to the laws of society, aren't they? Before that, he is subject to the needs, desires, and wants of his mother. Not saying it's right, it just is.

Life, of course, begins at conception, and independent life begins with a person's first breath. However, many children who were aborted could have survived outside the womb.

I would like for people who claim to be against abortions to concentrate more on eradicating the causes of abortions, which include poverty and media that glamorizes sex among juveniles.

Therein lies the problem with anti-abortion rights activist, most of whom are conservatives. They cry over the baby in the womb, but their policies consistently hurt poor children and their parents. They seem to care more about that child in the womb than after they are born.

Juveniles, I'm a teacher, have had sex since the beginning of mankind. The key will be to educate children and in poor homes, where it is needed the most, children are not educated on sex. I know this because I teach at a Title I school.

The unborn bi-racial child you made and referenced was not a creation of God but of an Anti-Christ spirit. True point about the origin of life, but in your case your foreknowing was a warning against your satanic fornication, urging you to pray yourself away from this interrracial abomination. It was righteous to destroy that seed and you should have been the one to make the insistence as you are the one that is of Creator virtue and responsibility. I am warning you not to whine yourself into a promotion of interracial relationships and advocacy for biracial children under the guise of the knowledge of God in righteousness.

If life doesn't start until you take your first breath than you're implying you're dead in the womb. Come on now... You're alive in the womb. Your heart is beating. You practice breathing with the amniotic fluid. You require food and oxygen. You pass waste from the food your mother eats. Your mother breathes for you. Saying you aren't alive in the womb is like saying someone in a coma is dead because they're receiving assistance. LOL That's just completely silly to say you aren't alive in the womb although you can think and feel and all your organs are in use. You should really take the time to learn about conception through delivery before you say silly things. I couldn't even read the rest of your article.

IF YOU DIE WHEN YOUR HEART STOPS,

THEN YOU'RE ALIVE THE MOMENT IT STARTS BEATING.

Your first heartbeat took place 18 days after conception. Yes that would mean you are now officially alive.
