But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matt 6:33
I was thinking about this the other day. I'm pretty sure that the Bible says that life is 'in the blood' so can a fetus be said to be 'alive' before it has blood flowing through it; according to Scripture?
It seems like the implications of life being the blood is obvious. You know, lifeblood. Life=blood. There is no life without blood.Scripture isn't necessary to refer to in the abortion discussion, nor especially in the context of this post, in order to come to a conclusion.The real question might be whether or not one cares about the life of the unborn human developing in the womb. Now I know that this isn't the question in mind of some pro-abortionists, but I don't see how the facts favor their point of view. At the very least, in the U.S., abortion should be legally handled by the individual states rather than by the unconstitutional Roe v. Wade, it's obscure language notwithstanding.
As far as personhood is concerned, one of the best arguments in the Bible is probably the Luke 1 description of John the Baptist. In the womb he was named by God, saved, regenerated, and filled with the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1 sounds like an argument for election.
By the way, I like that picture. My wife is pregnant with baby #6, due March 15th. We've decided to go with a midwife and have a home birth. I'm nervous and excited.
Congratulations, Jonathan (and wife)!So, I don't feel like I really heard an answer to my question. If Scripture says that life is in the blood, can a fetus/zygote be said to be 'alive' before it has blood in it?Regards,
