Cells or Life

The Stem Cell debate centers upon the age-old question of "When does life begin."

I believe it starts when the "spirit" enters the body, and death occurs when it leaves.

But....when does that occur. We don't know. Some believe it is at conception, some believe it occurs at first brain waves, some at first heartbeat. I for one, believe it occurs at first brain activity.

But....Who of us that are walking this earth today really knows when? There are over 1200 different Christian religions, and there are many different ideas on this.

The Presidents point is that the Stem Cells "might" be alive. His point is since we don't know; let’s err on the side of life.

See my first post "The Definition of Life" for yet more on this subject.
