Under our laws abortion may not be murder. Hence an unqualified statement whether abortion is murder or not may be interpreted both ways. But the sphere of what is murder extends well beyond both state and person. In Germany, killing jews was not murder; it was serving the state. In the US, killing slaves was not murder but lost of property. These two case illustrate that the moral compass of countries have been quite skewed and will continue to be so.

lighthouse, well that was obvious not valuable. The abortion case rests on one side claiming what they do not know--that the fetus is not a human being deserving dignity--and then claiming they do know it. Nevertheless, that one side, so sure that the fetus does not have rights, is oddly uncertain of other issues.

Thou shalt not kill, and thats it. There is no passage stating we recieve souls at conception anywhere. They are simply pro-birth or pro birth and anti-post-birth.

I would also say that Genesis 2:7 gives us the information that breathing is a direct sign of life, and that there is a soul.

I was unaware that zygotes breathe!
