More importantly, God reveals to us in His Word that not only does life begin at conception, but He knows who we are even before then (Jeremiah1:5). King David said this about God’s role in our conception: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb . . . 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).
God is the One who gives life, and only He has the right to take it away. Every person, born or unborn, is a precious soul made by God, in His image. Every life is an entrustment from God that we need to celebrate and protect.
