Sanctity of Life

I didn’t realize until earlier today that today is Sanctity of Life Sunday, but I didn’t want to let the day end without saying something about it.

As a Christian I believe God is the author of life, and He says he knew us even in the womb.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
    my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
    the days that were formed for me,
    when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:13-16

This column, On abortion, it’s best to err on the side of life, makes the point that if there is any chance at all that the unborn fetus is a real human life, then it is best to treat it as such. I would think that even non-Christian people could see that. But apparently they don’t.

I saw this going around Facebook:

Roe mistake

“Each day, 2,150 women wake up in America believing abortion is the only realistic solution to an unplanned pregnancy” (care-net.org).
God brought Norma out of darkness and into His marvelous light.
Many women are still sitting in the darkness; will you help them see the light of the world?
We win by showing love, compassion, and mercy to one frightened woman at a time.

  1. We as human beings need to learn to respect ALL life. My heart breaks at the thought of how many babies have been murdered under Roe v Wade.
    I saw a picture going around facebook of an unborn baby holding a sign that said “Please let me be the one”. This is in response to the Presidents speech regarding gun control where he said “If we can save just one child we should take that step…”. I pray that we as a country and as a people start to see unborn babies as “children”.

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
