Conception is the Entitlement of Life

Conception is the Entitlement of Life

In an age of invetro-fertilization, surrogate mothering, artificial insemination, and cloning, I have yet to hear of anyone creating DNA from absolutely nothing. Man does not have the ability to unlock that mystery.  God only, holds the title deed to that secret.  He alone, should have the sole discretion to determine when life begins and how it continues.

From the moment of conception, life has begun.  By week two, the cluster of cells has become an embryo with a brain, digestive system, a heart, and muscle.  By week three, the spinal cord is developing.  By week four, the head and arms are emerging.  By the second month, every organ is in place.  By the fourth month, the child is sucking its thumb.  Your rights began the moment you were conceived.

Jeremiah 1:4, 5

“The Lord came to me saying: “I knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb….”

Practical Application and Assignments:

There have been more than 50 million abortions in the U.S. since our Supreme Court legalized unrestricted abortion in 1973.* How can our world have become so out of touch with the value of life that it is now legal to discard it as though it were nothing? It doesn’t make sense that a mother who disposes of her baby after birth will be prosecuted for murder, but can legally abort her baby during the birthing process. How do you feel about the freedom of choice and right to life issues? If your mother had chosen to have an abortion, you would not have the privilege to form an opinion!

  • Read Psalm 139:13-16. “I have the right to live.”
  • Pray for those struggling with this atrocious and controversial issue.
  • Pray that God will rise up political leaders to uphold His laws and put a stop to this horrible injustice.
  • Remember, God forgives. If you are suffering from the guilt of an abortion, give it to God. Forgive yourself.

“…before you were born I sanctified you.” Jeremiah 1:5
