Life is a Gift From God

Since the passage of Roe Vs. Wade in on January 22, 1973, forty-nine million, five hundred fifty-one thousand, seven hundred three babies have been aborted. If it breaks your heart, imagine what it does to the heart of God, who is the Giver of Life.

"You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." Psalm 139:13

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you. . ." Jeremiah 1:5

"Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained before me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:16

"Marry and have children, and then find mates for them and have many grandchildren. Multiply! Don't dwindle away!" Jeremiah 29:6 (The Living Bible)

"Have many children, so that our descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control." Genesis 1:28 (The Good News Bible)

"May the Lord give you increase, you and your children! May you be blessed by the Lord who made heaven and earth." Psalm 115:12 (RSV) "He will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: He will also bless the fruit of thy womb." Deuteronomy 7:13 "Every wise woman builds her house; but the foolish plucks it down with her hands." Proverbs 14:1

We live in a time where people view children in such a backward way. They are God's reason for marriage. It is through them that the human race continues. We as parents can affect the future by simply bringing these little ones into the world and raising them deliberately. The future.
It is a humbling and joyful privilege to be given a child. But there are too many people who don't see it that way. We can never get back those 49 million lives. They are lost. But if we can begin to help people realize the blessing that each new life is, we can begin to change this page in the story of our nation's history and redeem the time that is given to us.
