I was having lunch with a couple of friends last weekend and the subject came up. One friend insisted that life begins when the egg is fertilized and a soul imparted.
The other friend insisted that life begins when the baby is born and becomes a separate biological organism.
"You're both wrong," I interjected. "Life begins when the last kid graduates college and the dog dies."
I hope you are not planning on being taken seriously on this forum, newbie.
I will post it again: Your insertion of when life begins, in an historical context, is a tangent. More accurately, it is a strawman, and it won't work. Nobody on this thread is taking issue with what Ms Pelosi may or may not believe to be historical Christian belief. We're being pretty specific here. Ms Pelosi holds beliefs, and acts on those beliefs, in a manner which is in direct contradiction to Catholic teaching. Either you are lacking in your knowledge of Catholic Catechesis or you are being obtuse deliberately to support your pro-abortion stance. (C'mon. Admit it.)
Either way--it is a strawman. It is not germane to the discussion on this particular thread. Quit hijacking.
