The CHOICE to Kill the Pre-Born

RIGHT: Some startling "statistics". The red part of the graph shows the immensity of the killing of tiny pre-born human beings since the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in the United States. The small sliver (mostly blue) part of the graph show the comparative ratio/number of ALL of the deaths of ALL of the wars in which the United States has fought in since its founding in 1776.

The number of pre-born human beings purposefully killed in one year--2017 for example--was 879,000.

RIGHT:

The above graph doesn't tell the whole story. But the picture on the right does. The statistics are not statistics--they are people-- little bitty ones.

The Bible leaves no doubt about that fact.


Below is the remarkable view from God's eyes.

We will look at the conception, growth, and development of a little-bitty person, shining the light of Scripture on an actual medical chart of a full-term pregnancy. The chart represents man's finite knowledge of conception-to-birth; the Bible passages come from the Infinite, All-Knowing Creator-God.

The medical chart (with explanatory graphics added) shows a timeline of 3-Trimesters moving left to right from Conception, to Zygote, Embryonic, and Fetal stages until Birth, a period of about 40 weeks or 9 months.

Amazingly, God's Word (the Bible), shines its light on all 3 Trimesters. The QUESTION: Is the pre-born "baby" simply a POTENTIAL HUMAN BEING, like a piece of flesh (appendage, tonsil, appendix, etc.) which somewhere along the way--or at birth-- develops into a human? Or is the pre-born "baby" a living person being protected and nurtured within the mother's womb? That is, WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN?

We will begin with the 3rd Trimester and work backwards with our Scriptural-Lamp. Again, WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN?

RIGHT, The THIRD TRIMESTER:

At the birth of the twins to the Patriarch Isaac and his wife Rebecca, we read,


But the children struggled together within her…

Now the first came forth…And afterward his brother came forth with his hand holding on to Esau's heel… (Gen 25.22-26


God explained the struggle going on between the babies within the womb as two HUMAN FOREBEARS of 2 Peoples--Esua would come forth to be the father of the Edomites. Jacob would come forth to be the father of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.


So, at the stage of #3 on the above chart, two babies are foreordained as HUMAN FOREBEARS of 2 Peoples. This fore-ordination occurred BEFORE birth. More below...



LEFT: Esau came out in the birth first, but not without his twin brother's hand clinging with a grip on his heel. Jacob's hand was gripping the heel of Esau's foot, as only the human hand of a living human being can do, and Jacob had not yet emerged from the birth canal.


All of this, of course, occurred in what medical science refers to as the 3rd Trimester. The Bible shows at this stage two fully human persons.

The SECOND TRIMESTER: The Bible sheds tremendous light on this stage because it actually describes the following event as having occurred in the 6-Month period of the pregnancy. Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, was pregnant with him when Mary, in her first month of pregnancy with Jesus, came to tell Elizabeth (her cousin) of her own pregnancy with our Lord Jesus Christ. We read,


And it came about that when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting,

the baby leaped in her womb;

and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. (Luke 1:41, 44


Here we see the Holy Spirit's confirmation to Elizabeth that the baby within her overflowed with the Human Emotion of JOY.

The FIRST TRIMESTER: The medical charts show that it is during this First Trimester that the earliest formation of the baby's body-parts emerge. This is the Zygote and Embryo stage. Amazingly God's Word also looks deep into the mother's womb at this process, where we read,


For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother's womb.

Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written,

The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. (Psa 139.13, 16


At this earliest of stages we see, in an actual view through GOD’S’ EYES, that He values this zygote-embryo formation as more than a mass of flesh, but as a living human with the Value of Person-hood, fully endowed with even a Life-Plan. If that person's life-plan is interrupted by a killing called in medical terms, "abortion", then that little person is taken to heaven where that life-plan will come to a far more glorious and eternal fruition. Meanwhile, we see that all 3 Trimesters of a pregnancy bear, not a potential human, but rather a human.


Life Begins At Conception, and the proof continues with one final look at the stages of pregnancy... below...


CONCEPTION, the starting-point of The FIRST TRIMESTER: The Holy Spirit-inspired Psalm 51 declares that David was "conceived" with a sin-nature (as all humans are).

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,

And in sin my mother conceived me. ( Psalms 51:5

Since ONLY MEN AND ANGELS HAVE SIN, humanness is therefore established at conception.

THREE BIBLE PROOFS OF the 'PERSON-HOOD' of the PRE-BORN

1. Personal Pronouns

"...and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit,

while yet in his mother's womb."  (Luke 1.15


The two personal pronouns make it clear that, "while yet in his mother's womb", the pre-born baby was shown by God to be a living person.

2. The Holy Spirit

"...and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit,

while yet in his mother's womb."  (Luke 1.15


Since the Holy Spirit never indwells, or never fills a tree, a rock, or an animal, but only living human beings, then the baby in the womb is a living human being.

3. "Brephos" Babies

The same Greek word, "Brephos", translated "baby", is used for the child both BEFORE and AFTER birth. For example,


1. BEFORE BIRTH: "the baby leaped in her womb" ( Luke 1:41)

                    is the same word as

2. AFTER BIRTH: "bringing even their babies to Him so that He might touch them, …”  ( Luke 18:15)

What does the Bible teach? All "brephos babies" (see above, right), are LIVING HUMAN BEINGS. They ALL, whether pre-born or born, move through a continuum of growth and development, completely dependent both in and out of the womb on the protection and nurturing of their mother. In the 3 graphics below, from left to right, parents are blessed with a LIVING HUMAN BEING.

1. The baby in God's Hands in the womb.        2. The baby at birth.                                    3. The Babies Jesus called unto Himself in Luke 18:15-16.

The title at the top of the page is "The CHOICE to Kill the Pre-Born". Does the Bible grant us "PRO-CHOICE" to Kill Pre-Born tiny humans?

In Deuteronomy 30:19 the Bible says YES, we are free to choose, but then equally affirms that CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES--"LIFE and DEATH, the BLESSING and the CURSE". This applies to both individuals and to nations ( Jer 18.7-10

If a pre-born tiny human being has been aborted on our watch, we, both father and mother, are guilty. Our nation, America, is guilty. Whether God forgives America in the future depends on America's response to God in light of Jeremiah 18:7-10. But if any of us individually are guilty, we have confirmed our rightful place among "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". (Rom 3:23) Yet ALL who have sinned may freely receive the "righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ" (Rom 3:22), and may yet give that little one an eternal hug in Heaven... and receive Eternal Forgiveness (1 John 1:9

Have you been forgiven? Do you have Eternal Life? HERE'S HOW...
