Where I Stand : On The Unborn

In the beginning was God.  He created human life.  First He made a man.  Then He made a woman.

God gave the man and the woman a mission.  It was simple but important:  "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it." (Genesis 1:28)  This human life that God created was to begin reproducing.  He wanted the woman to have babies, and He wanted human life to cover the world that He had created.

From the very beginning, we see that God is about life.  Human life.  Yours and mine.

Let's think for a moment about the unborn.

When a baby is conceived, God is working an incredible, mind-boggling miracle.  A tiny egg is fertilized, and the result is a little life right there in the womb of the mother.  It is hard for us to fathom how God works all this out.  But He does it amazingly well!

Just consider these two verses that describe what happens with the unborn during a pregnancy:  "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made..."  (Psalm 139:13-14)  Here we see God "knitting" a little one together.  And we see that He is doing a "wonderful" job of it.  When that baby is born a few months later, God's fingerprints are all over it.

Human life is sacred.  It has immense value because God created it.  This is true with men, women, boys, and girls that you see every day.  And this is true for the unborn.

Because of this, I believe human life is to be protected and celebrated.  Little unborn babies that are in the wombs of their mothers should be defended as well.  Though they are tiny and dependent upon those who carry them, they are still human lives. 

This is why I am diametrically opposed to abortion.  Murdering babies in the wombs of their mothers has nothing to do with "choice" or "reproductive rights".  It is evil.  It is wrong.  And it directly goes against what God is for, which is life.

I am pro-life.  This means that I believe life, including life of the unborn, is precious.  Why?  Because God created it, and He calls us to reproduce it. 

This is where I stand on the unborn.
