LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION. An embryo or fetus may not necessarily be a viable life but scientifically it is a life. According to the scriptures, David not knowing the science of life, believed life begins at conception when he considered himself a living being before birth when he spoke at Psa 139;13-16 and GOD believed life begins at conception when he spoke at Ex 21;22,23 and Ex 20;13. Life does not have to be viable to be a life. A person who has stopped breathing and need to be on a ventilator to breath is still a living being and does not make his less a life. A baby does not breath until after birth, but it is still a life before birth because it breaths through its mother. Cut the ventilator off of the connection between the mother and the baby or fetus or embryo, life ceased to exist. Irrelevant of bible teachings, scientifically life does begin at conception. DO THE BIBLE TEACH THAT LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION. WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT ABORTION. (John 3:16; Romans 8:1; Colossians 1:14). (James 1:5) (Genesis 1:26-27; 9:6). Psalm 139:13-16 Exodus 21:22-25 Jeremiah 1:5 Does the Bible teach that life begins at conception?
