Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalm 139:13-16)

The New Testament Refers to Jesus in the Womb as a “Child”
3 So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. 4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife,[a] who was with child. 6 So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.
Luke 2:3-6New King James Version (NKJV)

“When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life, eye for the eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

because they have ripped open pregnant women in Gilead,

God Loves All Humanity Including Little Children
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them…’See that you do not despise one of these little ones.

Crime of Killing the Innocent
“Do not kill the innocent.” (Exodus 23:7)

God Can Forgives Those Who Have Had an Abortion When They Repent
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives. My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defence—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” (1 John 1:9-2:1)
“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.” (Psalm 51:1-2)
“Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:9-10)
The Unborn Child Has Feelings
“While both women were with child, Elizabeth said to Mary, ‘As soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.’” (Luke 1:44)
Christians Should First Follow God’s Laws
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2
In Canada, 1, 00,000 unborn children are killed every year.
Since 1970 more than 3 million unborn babies have been aborted in this country.
In the United States since 1973 (the court decision of Roe Vs. Wade) more than 60 million abortions have occurred. The woman who was used in the Roe Vs. Wade court case by pro-abortionists has become pro-life.
In North America alone over 63 million people, unborn children, have died in the Holocaust of abortion.
Our motivation for helping others is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
