Although this site is primarily for the healing of those who in some way or other, whether by commission or omission, have been effected by the killing of children by abortion, we must not ignore the babies in the womb. Each child is of infinite value to the Lord God, Creator of Heaven and Earth. In Genesis 1 verse 27 it states that God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. He then blessed them and said to them “Be fruitful and increase in number”. In Psalm 127 verses 3-5 it says “Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that has his quiver full of them.”
Each child becomes a unique human being from the moment of conception, when the single sperm cell joins with the single egg. By about six days this individual person has moved from the fallopian tube where s/he was conceived to the womb and is ready to implant. It is not a fertilised egg that implants into the womb but a six day old person.
By three weeks the baby’s rudimentary heart starts to beat and should not stop until the time the Lord has decreed, normally in their old age. Other developments take place as the baby grows – brain, eyes, mouth, ears, lungs, stomach, arms, legs, nervous system, blood system, fingers, toes, etc. Some people say ‘it’ doesn’t look like a human baby so it is okay to kill ‘it’. But actually, s/he looks exactly like a human baby at that particular stage of development – whatever that stage may be. Those of us alive today all looked exactly the same at any particular age in our lives before birth. This is the way ‘experts’ can tell how old an unborn baby is, by looking to see at what stage of development s/he has reached. If the baby has human DNA from both his/her mother and father than s/he is human and should be allowed to grow. S/he is not a potential human but a human with potential. Each baby controls the pregnancy – the mother does not have control over her own body whilst she is pregnant despite those who say it is their body and so can do what they like with it. If that was the case the mother could just ‘wish’ she was no longer pregnant. The mother cannot even control the day or time of the natural birth of her baby.
Many babies are killed by abortion because they may have some disability. In Exodus 4 verse 11 it says “The Lord said to him (Moses), “Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord?”” Whilst this might seem hard to understand and to accept, it does show that the Lord knows about people born with disabilities. We may not understand the whys or wherefores, but it does mean that babies with disabilities should be born. They may only live for a few seconds, minutes or hours, but in that time they can be shown love by those around them. It also means the mother doesn’t have to live with the guilt that she killed her unborn baby by abortion. We only need to read Psalm 139 to see that the Lord knows the numbers of our days before even one of them came into being.
Please pray for each child that is growing in his or her mother’s womb, that s/he will be allowed to grow until full term and then to be born. Please pray for the protection of each child in the womb, and for the support for the mother during her pregnancy. Please pray that intrusive procedures are not carried out on children in the womb purely to kill them if they don’t meet a certain criteria. Please pray that unborn children will not be seen as a threat to society that can be ‘got rid of’ at any cost. Please pray that children, especially the unborn, are not seen as ‘must have’ commodities. Please pray for all the unborn children worldwide whose lives will end today through abortion. Pray that wherever possible, their mothers will change their minds and choose life.
