[Life does not begin at conception]
The sperm is already alive.
The egg is already alive.
When they unite, life CONTINUES.
We don't have life from non life; hence, life does not begin at conception.
Now, it has human dna; therefore, its NATURE is human.
If it is not human, then what is it?
If it is not human, then when does it become human?
If it becomes human at some point, what constituted a change in nature?
If its nature changed from non human to human, what is the differentiation that defines it as human?
Think. Let's suppose there is a person who was in a bad car accident, who is in a coma, lost his arms and legs, is on a breathing machine, cannot communicate, has a catheter, and must be cared for because he cannot sustain his own life.
Is that person human? Of course he is. Humanness is more than arms and legs, more than mere consciousness, more than merely breathing. There is something more, something different, something 'human' that defines its nature.
This nature is possessed by the old people.
This nature is possessed by middle aged people.
This nature is possessed by adults.
This nature is possessed by adolescents.
This nature is possessed by children.
This nature is possessed by babies.
This nature is possessed by that which lives in the womb of the mother.
If what is alive in the womb is NOT human, then it must be okay to transfer it to the womb of a ***** (female dog). There shouldn't be any problem, because its nature is not human.
But, that'd be stupid, wrong, immoral.
Well, pro deathers, those who advocate destroying the helpless life in the womb of the mother, those who promote killing the innocent, tells us what the nature of the life in the womb is at say.... 6 weeks. If it isn't human, then tell us what it IS, not what it is NOT!
If you can't, then step out of the argument and repent of your sin against God for your murderous position.
