Interested un solving this conundrum?
I wrote a post to argue that the Texas Abortion Law to make it illegal to abort a baby after approximately six weeks which is normally when a sonic test can determine presence of a heartbeat.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient Bible wisdom verse and present an argument that a hearing heart can be related to the law that stipulates only a physician can legally pronounce a person to be dead. The conundrum argues we should use the same methods to determine a person is alive.
Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? ((1Kings 3:9 KJV)
Both the NASB and the KJV have a note that says “understanding” is literally “hearing” in the Hebrew.
What’s My Point?
There are legal, medical, moral and philosophic arguments on the issue of when both life and death occur argument.
My point is the law has determined that only a physician can determine and sign a death certificate. How then is it legally permissible for an expectant mother to understand or sign an abortion agreement when a heartbeat can be heard?.
Or for any physician to present an argument that a heartbeat does not indicate life or death is present?
For example, I read this following excerpt to determine if a person is dead:
“Apart from performing many of the tests above, though with more reliable and expensive equipment, doctors or paramedics on the scene use technology. They hook a body up to machines that monitor heartbeat, brainwaves, and respiration. If you’ve ever watched a medical show, you know exactly what they’re looking for: A flatline. Doctors may also do an ultrasound to see if there’s any heart activity.
In My Opinion
There are too many legal, philosophical, moral, scientific arguments being presented to the Supreme Court Judges to decide to hear the Texas Abortion Law which was recently passed which some opinions argue to be an infringement on Woman’s Rights.
After reading numerous philosophical and scientific articles how to determine both life and death, in my opinion, the Texas Law argument that life begins when a heartbeat can be understood or heard was a wise advice both 3000 years ago and in our contemporary times.

Absent faith beliefs that life is a blessing from our Creator, is the six-week time period a wise or foolish argument of this conundrum issue?
The conundrum issue that resulted in preventing the Rights of over 60 million babies beating hearts from ever being “understood or heard” in the USA after the Supreme Court 1973 ruling?
