I'm glad you think abortion isn't a good thing, but with the freedom of choice comes the knowledge that abortion isn't the only choice,and it certainly is most likely not the best choice. Do unborn not have the same rights to live as others? Check your conscience, doesn't it seem more of a tragedy when a pregnant woman is murdered? Why would we have that emotional reaction if we didn't intrinsically think there was more than parasitic tissue inside of her?
The bible is about taking God's perspective, not man's. If we are "knitted in the womb" as David days in Psalms, than God has still created us, and we have no right to destroy what God has made.
The Breath of Life is the imago dei, that which separates us from the rest of creation. He did not breathe the breath of life into any other being.
I'm afraid that your argument MAY be a reductionism. Pray/think about it, but I would shy away from using that argument. But thank you for it! I hadn't considered that before.
