Many times the term Pro-Life is used to describe those who are trying to protect the unborn and although that is one of the primary focuses of this web site it is not the only focus. 

We believe that God created  mankind in His image, male and female, and not only gave them life but created them with the ability to reproduce their own living human offspring. We believe that through the Bible God has instructed us to respect that "gift" of reproduction and to respect the life that it brings. He has done this through instructions that are sometimes very specific and at other times broad in nature; however, the general principle, throughout both the Old and New Testaments, is that life is precious and is to be respected and protected from conception to natural death.

The following verses are some of those that God has given concerning respect for life.

God knew David before he was born:

Psalm 139:13-15
"You did form my inward parts, you knit me together in my mother's womb...you knew me right well; my frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret..."

God speaks to Jeremiah showing that the child in the womb is a person:

"Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you."

The entity in the womb is a baby:

"And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy."

This is the same word (brephos) Luke uses in Luke 2:12,16 "You will find a baby lying in a manger." Luke 18:15,16 meaning infants and 1 Peter 2:2 "newborn babes."

The following concerning John the Baptist: 

Luke 1:15
 "He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth."

God knows the personalities of the unborn:

Genesis 25:23 
"two nations are in thy womb" (Jacob and Esau) "and two manner of people."

Paul writes: 

Galatians 1:15
 "But when He had set me apart before I was born...and had called me through His grace."

Consider the most unique person of all, our Savior Jesus Christ. Unique as He is, the scriptures tell us that in His human nature He was to be like us in every way.

Hebrews 2:17
"Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in every respect, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest."

Is there any question of Jesus' personhood before birth? From the moment of conception to the day He died on the cross He lived in humanness like you and I.

What is man's (mankind's) worth:

Genesis 1:27
 "God created man in His own image."

Job 10:12
 "Thou hast granted me life."

Psalm 8
 "When I consider Thy heavens, the Works of thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; What is man, that Thou doest take thought of him? And the son of man, that Thou dost care for him? Yet Thou hast made him a little lower than God, And dost crown him with glory and majesty! Thou dost make him to rule over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet.... Oh Lord our Lord, How majestic is Thy name in all the earth."

Our attitude towards our fellow human beings:

(Living Bible Version) Proverbs 24:11-12
 "Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don't stand back and let them die. Don't try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn't know about it."

Murder is forbidden:

Jeremiah 7:6, 22:3,17 and Exodus 23:7
 "shed not innocent blood."

Proverbs 6:16-17
 "The Lord hates hands that shed innocent blood."

Exodus 20:13
"Thou shalt not kill."

Matthew 5:21
"Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill..."

Unrepentant murderers will be punished by God:

Revelations 21:8
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth of fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Revelations 22:15
"For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie."

Murderers are to be executed:

Genesis 9:6
"Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God made He man."

Children are a blessing from God:

Genesis 25:21
 "And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebecca his wife conceived."

Genesis 33:5
 "The children which God has graciously given me."

Psalm 127:3
"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward."

An improper attitude toward our children:

2 Kings 17:16-20
"And they forsook all the commandments of the Lord their God.... And they burned their sons and daughters as offerings....Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel and removed them out of His sight."

Jeremiah 32:35
"And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters  to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin."

Jeremiah 7:31
"And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart."

On the surface it might seem that these verses are irrelevant to us today; however, each year in this country approximately 1.5 million babies are sacrificed by their parents. They are not cast into the fiery mouth of Baal; they are aborted instead. The results are the same. They are all very innocent ; they are all very dead. We, as a Nation, are guilty. Since Roe vs. Wade, January 22, 1973, our laws have allowed the killing of innocent preborn babies.
