What the Word of God says about life

and what we as Christians can do to protect it.

During the summer months I will be featuring information of Life matters requested my readers.  I receive many Emails and letters from various Christians who wish to know what  the Word of God says about  when life begins and what we as Christians can do to protect it.

Based on those letters and comments let me sum up these common themes shared by all those who took the time to write, call or Email:

Life DOES begin at Conception. Lets look at the proof texts:

Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? (Job 31:15).

Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother's breast. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God (Psalm 22:9-10).

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; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be (Psalm 139:13-16).

This is what the LORD says---he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you...(Isaiah 44:2).

Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you (Isaiah 46:3-4).

And now the LORD says---he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength (Isaiah 49:5).

The word of the LORD came to me, saying, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:4-5).

When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy" (Luke 1:41-42, 44).

 

Medical Doctors also confirm life beginning at Conception. Using the vinacular of their profession they agree to the following medical facts: "the development of a human being begins with fertilization (Conception), a process by which two highly specialized cells, the spermatozoan from the male and the oocyte from the female, unite to give rise to a new organism, the zygote." ( "Medical Embryology" written by Dr. Jan Langman)

Indeed, a human life begins at Conception . The zygote is a unique, genetically distinct human being that has come into existence for the first time with 23 Chromosones from the mother and 23 from the father. At this one-cell stage, the full genetic information that this individual will carry for his or her entire life is present.

Every person was once at that one-cell stage of human life. Subsequent stages include cell division, uterine implantation, establishment of nourishment and growth.

In medical jurisprudence, when this new human organism is destroyed before development is complete, its called an abortion. Any substance interfering with this development is medically defined as (in their word) "abortifacient". This includes ANY substance interfering with endometrial implantation, including so-called "emergency-contraceptive" pills like the "Morning-after Pill" aka "Plan B".

Here again we have harm happening to misguided women and death to their baby. Access to the morning-after pill will NOT "enhance access" to fundamental women's health care. On the contrary, it will kill babies and harm women.

The morning-after pill offers no protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including AIDS. Importantly, there are no long-term studies to show whether women will be permanently damaged, or risk such diseases as cancer, from these chemicals being given in such high doses.

Women and those who urge them to have an abortion would do well to read God's word and be wise to heed sound medical facts that truly promote women's health.
