    I would ask two questions.

    What is a Soul?

    When does the Soul enter the Body?

    When you know the answer to those questions, then I will listen to your definition of Who is and who is not yet Human. There is the Legal Definition, and then there is the definition of a much higher Authority. Best to memorize your argument, for when it is really going to count. ;)

    I support Individual Choice, just not on misinformation. Each Person has the Right to know the full weight, whichever way they choose, before the deed is done. The Volume of Abortions here, strongly suggest Mass Genocide, and a big pay off for the Industry.

    You did not base your argument on anything other than a question to me. That is not a case. Alan is having the same issue.

    Make your case, and then I can respond.

    Questions that certainly will invoke varied responses, indeed. Some may attribute a definition to include the "spirit" while others may not.

    There's a oft-quoted quote attributed to C.S. Lewis (though Wikiquote says it's misattributed) that says, "You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body." That's how one person saw it.

    Under that thinking, one can think of the soul as your total essence, and that could include things such as your body, your mind, your emotions. In theology, soul and spirit are often seen as separate entities, with the soul being who you are as a person, and the spirit as your communication or relationship with a higher power or creator.

    If the soul is your entire being, then it has to be said that that comes from the beginning of its creation, conception. The body is certainly there, right from the human DNA code, and the rest comes from development.

    What should be of importance is this: if one is unsure of a fetus' humanity, whether or not it can feel pain, whether or not it has some sense of consciousness, whether or not somebody defines it a person (a few of the classic arguments when finding "middle ground" on abortion), or when a "soul enters a body," it is best to err on the side of safety and protection, and especially on the side of the civil rights of this new human life.

    I believe it becomes a baby when it takes a breath, as when this occurs, it is no longer relying on the woman to keep it alive.

    Obama is speaking an opinion. Not the truth.

    There was little doubt that you would be voting for Romney.

    If Romney has said he is against abortion, and Obama said that Romney was against abortion, how is Obama lying?
