"The etymology of sanction - a penalty or a permission, to punish or approve? From Latin sancire, to ratify. English, a deceiving language, enables both poetry and fraud. "

"If one looks up the etymology of "sanctity" one finds it's origins are in words like "sacred," "saintly," or "holy.""

"Ed and others, re Mother nature wouldn't have it any other way. I like to share the blame or credit with Ma and Pa Nature wouldn't have it any other way. "

"Hm-mm, I clicked on the title intending to look for a place to say "Don't ask when life begins. Ask when the law recognizes that a life has begun." I quickly realized that I was in over my head."

"Watching a documentary about life on the African plains or the struggle for specie's survival in the Amazon jungle allays any trepidation I have about the murderous cycle of life on our little planet. I viewed a giant dragonfly just the other…"

"Thanks, Joey. I'm afraid I'm not very good at deciphering the one true language of God (King James English), but I can't find anything in the verses you cited that even remotely hints that human life is sacred."

"@Maxwell Marovich, I appreciate the honesty. ;-) And, the science lesson. I might consider revising that section a bit if I can think of a more technically accurate way to acknowledge the point. @MikeLong, His exact comment was this: "It is…"

""life is sacred" Chapter and verse? Anyone? My machine-readable Bible does not contain the word, "sacred". What else should I search for?"

"Death is part of life. No life, however short, is wasted. Everything is food for something else. If you put a dead human in the ground, s/he feeds worms and bacteria. If you cremate them, they turn into substances necessary for all forms of life.…"

"@Ari E. S. I'm not generally a fan of death, but it is a natural part of life, and the line between bad death and OK death is a lot harder to pinpoint than some more simplistic beliefs would appear to indicate. @MikeLong When I originally…"

"I, too, have very mixed feelings about taking of life.  I will not go out of my way to kill a living thing.  However I realize that living beings must die for me to live.  It is an interesting dilemma. There is no answer except that…"

"That would make a great Children's book. Too bad it would probably get banned. That's another thing that the men in black like to do... Burn Books."

MikeLong commented on Joey's blog post 'The Sanctity of Life'
"Something is sacred if a "holy" book says it is. I know or nowhere (at least in the Bible) that says that life is sacred. The Bible equates human life to dust, but not something sacred. Perhaps there is a Bible scholar lurking who can tell…"

The Sanctity of Life

I heard that life is sacred, but I don’t know what that word means.#A woman outside a clinic told me that a tiny mass of cells was a person, but I didn’t think it looked like one. I heard her say that the bundle of cells was just what a person looked like when it was very small. She said it had the same genetic makeup and all of the same DNA as a fully grown person and therefore had the same right to life. I watched her scratch her nose, dislodging a thousand skin cells containing her full set…See More
