Your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by Myself." Isaiah 44:24

Why Should We Value Life?

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

So God created man in His own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27

Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His, we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:3

This is what the LORD says - "your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by Myself." Isaiah 44:24

For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16

Yet, O LORD, You are our Father. We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand. Isaiah 64:8

Who is the Creator of the unborn?

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

Your hands shaped me and made me. Will You now turn and destroy me? Remember that You molded me like clay. Will You now turn me to dust again?

Did You not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese, clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in Your providence watched over my spirit. Job 10:8-12

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

How is God concerned with the unborn?

Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth He has made mention of my name. Isaiah 49:1

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 1:5

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. Ephesians 1:3-4

Who is responsible for life and death?

The LORD brings death and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and raises up. 1 Samuel 2:6

And God spoke all these words:…"You shall not murder." Exodus 20:1, 13

"You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.'" Matthew 5:21

Jesus replied, "Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 19:18

This is what the LORD says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of his oppressor the one who has been robbed.

Do no wrong or violence to the alien, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place. Jeremiah 22:3

This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live…Deuteronomy 30:19

Is man permitted to take life before birth?

If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined whatever the woman's husband demands and the court allows. But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. Exodus 21:22-25

This is what the LORD says: "For three sins of Ammon, even for four, I will turn not back My wrath. Because he ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead…" Amos 1:13

Should a child conceived as a result of rape or incest be aborted?

Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin. Deuteronomy 24:16

"What do you people mean by quoting this proverb, about the land of Israel: 'The fathers eat sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?' "As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. For every living soul belongs to Me, the father as well as the son - both alike belong to Me. The soul who sins is the one who will die." Ezekiel 18:2-4

The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him. Ezekiel 18:20

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Should a child who might be born deformed or retarded be aborted?

The LORD said to him, "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?" Exodus 4:11

"Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, 'What are you making?' Does your work say 'He has no hands?' Woe to him who says to his father, 'What have you begotten?' or to his mother, 'What have you brought to birth?'"

But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to Him who formed it, 'Why did You make me like this?'" Romans 9:20

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 1 Corinthians 1:27

Should a woman have control over the life in her own body?

Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from Him. Psalm 127:3

For every living soul belongs to Me, the father as well as the son — both alike belong to Me. Ezekiel 18:4

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Does God forgive those who have had abortions?

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7-8

I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. Isaiah 43:25
