ESSAY ON LIFE
When does life really begin? Is it when the first fluttering beats of the
primitive heart of a fetus start, or when the child is pushed from the womb
into the world? Does it all actually start at the moment of conception when the
egg and sperm meet and mix their genetic cod 22522s187w e together to create a new being. Who can say really. No one
knows because no one is sure of when life truely
There are many out there who say an unborn child isn't really a person, or even
alive because it can not sustain it's own life. If
this were true, then no one is a real person until they are living on their own
away from their parents. When you stop and really think about this, without
listening to the arguments about when life starts or if something is considered
alive until a certain time, you would suprised at
what you may find.
When the primitive heart of a tiny fetus starts to beat for the first time, it
is then that it starts to actually survive on its own, apart from its mother.
Though at this time, most mothers-to-be don't know they are mothers yet, they
begin to change their attitude to a more gentle caring way and doing what they
can to protect the tiny life inside them in many different ways. Its that life growing inside them that started those mothering
instincts. Its those instincts that protect it from
harm until it is able to survive outside the womb and until it can live apart
from its mother later in life. Even beyond that point, any mother will protect
her young from everything she can.
I'm not a scientist, a theologist, or even a doctor.
I am just an average woman with a child of her own. From the moment I felt
those first flutterings of life within me and heard
my child's beating heart for the first time, all thanks to modern technology, I
have thought about when life truely began. No matter
what, from the very beginning when the egg and sperm meet, it is a living
breathing human being. Sometimes, the life can not go beyond a few weeks inside
the mother, but its still alive, until it can not go
any longer. There are times, when that life has to be ended, in such cases, it
is still sad, but if the mother is to live, then it has to be done. There are
other times, when frankly, it is best because there are other problems such as
a tumor which is eating away at the child little by little. It doesn't change
the fact the child had to die, but at least, it had a small chance and brought
just a little happiness into the mother's life.
So, when does life really begin? I don't know, but when ever it does, its all
well worth keeping it going, for the rewards are more than what anyone truely deserves.
