OPINION:

For all those who have an opinion concerning abortion (in particular, President Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who profess to be devout Catholics) I have a question: Do you believe in the existence of an immortal soul? If your answer is yes, at what point do you believe a baby is blessed by God with an immortal soul?

If you believe that abortion should be legal at some point during gestation, do you accept that aborting a baby after it possesses an immortal soul is unacceptable? Of course, belief in an immortal soul is a matter of faith. For nonbelievers, death is simply the end of consciousness. For those who believe the soul becomes one with the body at some time after conception, what happens to babies who die in the womb or are aborted before receiving an immortal soul?


I ask these questions because it is my opinion that they address the basis of our humanity. Are we children of God or not?
