12. Check your facts about murder

A human fetus which lacks a human soul is not yet a human being.
Church dogma was that ensoulment (when the human soul enters the fetus) was not until 90 to 120 days AFTER conception.
I've read that STILL IS dogma which the Church hides by equivocating on the phrase "human life" which can mean the life a a particular human (the life of Abraham Lincoln) OR cellular human life (Any living human body has cells which possess human life.)
