Politicians Shouldn't Decide
Moral Issues

BY John Slevin,, Contributor

    FRESNO STATE -- The Senate is trying to decide when "life" begins? This is an example of the type of question that politicians should not touch. Moral questions cannot be answered by political groups.
     Indeed, the question of when life begins has been around for millenniums and has a variety of answers. Some believe that the sex act itself is when life begins, while others think it's when the sperm and egg join.
    Still others think life begins when the embryo loses its tail and pig-like nose and begins to resemble a human.
     I've read that life begins when certain chemical reactions cause a heartbeat-like vibration to start. A lot of people think that life begins when the fetus is capable of surviving outside the womb, while others stick with simplicity and say that life begins at birth.
     The answer to the question is moral and personal and changes over time and culture. Still, I like what my grandparents had to say: "Life begins when the kids go off to college and the dog dies."
