I disagree, the egg is created in a womans body. The sperm is also alive.elected4ever said:If you are talking about valuing life then that is deferent.
At no time is the egg a part of a womans body. The woman does have a choice in that she may decide not to fertilize the egg. When that choice is taken from her by rape that does not change anything. Once the egg becomes fertile and ataches it self and begins to be nourished it is life and should be valued as any other human life would be if that person was born and conducting life's business. The life in the womb is not a parasite and should not be treated as such.
Taking human life is murder if that life is ended at the choice of another person and the woman is another person so abortion is murder. The only exceptions to that rule is the taking of life in self defense and the just execution of a criminal by the state. The state should be in the business of defending life and not sanctioning the willy nilly sanctioning of murder of the defenseless.
So if you spill your seed on the ground, thus preventing life, is that murder.
Where do you draw the line?
The big question is when is a human a person that can come under the protection from murder?
Who is to decide who is right? Let God devine life.
