Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Why I didn't repost the "single cell" picture on Facebook

Several of my friends on Facebook re-posted the following picture today:

I did think that this picture was somewhat thought-provoking, and I clicked "Like" the first time I saw it, but I did not repost it myself.

I do not think that the picture is that useful apologetically without some modification because:

1. Those who are pro-abortion would not deny that "a single living cell found in the womb of a pregnant woman" should be "considered life" in some sense;

2. Those who are pro-life do not think that every "single living cell" should be "considered life" in the same sense (otherwise we would protest if a scientist killed an amoeba during a lab experiment).

In other words, the picture above is practicing equivocation regarding the term "life."

The real controversy is whether the fertilized egg in the womb constitutes an individual human life.

And I would argue that it does.
