What part of murder do we not understand. The commandment did not say not to kill if someone has less than 5 defects or 35 defects or 3500 defects.
When you accept that life is a gift given by the Father and protected by His Commandment, then who would dare interfere with God's plan. Would any of us want to stand before God and try to justify wrecking His plan for life and the world. When we stop life taking it's first breaths and seeing it's first daylight, we are usurping God's role. We are being Gods.
