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. Psalm 139:13-14
David wrote these words to remind himself and to remind others of this unending truth: God continues to be creatively and actively involved in the development of human life. He personally cares for a baby from the moment of its conception. His consideration for a fetus is so detailed and complete that he already has a plan for his or her life. For this reason, God considers the abortion of an unborn infant as the murder of a human life. We must, also, remember these words spoken to the prophet Jeremiah when we are dealing with this issue, “Before I formed in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart” (Jeremiah 1:5). What both these passages tell us is very simply this: NO CHILD IS AN ACCIDENT. Which means EVERY LIFE IS SACRED TO GOD AND IF EVERY LIFE IS SACRED TO GOD THEN EVERY LIFE IS TO BE SACRED TO US. Since every life is sacred, then the taking of a life should only be a last resort. This principle not only applies to the issue of abortion, but it applies to the criminal code as well, because if you don’t view all life as being sacred then your first instinct when something doesn’t go your way is to lash out in violence. And the reason for this is because to lash out in violence in our minds is the quickest and easiest way to put an end to the problem, but what we fail to realize is that by lashing out in violence and taking another human life is that we have forever scared our minds and set ourselves on a path that only leads to our destruction. My whole point here is this: Whether you are pro-choice or pro-life the taking of a life needs to be the last resort and not first resort.
