If you are reading this and you are considering abortion, we want you to know that we love you and God loves you. We want to help you. We also understand that if you are reading this you are wondering if this is your next step. God loves you and your unborn child. Your unborn child is a life that God created and He has a plan for that child. What does the Bible say about life, when it begins and how God views each life? In the very beginning of the Bible, we read in Genesis 1:26–27, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created.
God recognizes the unborn as fully His: “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.” (Psalm 139:13–14)
“The Lord called me before I was born. He named me while I was in my mother’s womb.” (Isaiah 49:1)
“Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us within our mothers?” (Job 31:15) There is always an alternative to consider, and we want to help you through that decision-making process. You may think you have no options to raise this child due to lack of money or family support. But there are many couples who desire a child and, for one reason or another, cannot have one of their own. It is possible to find a loving home for your baby. Many times medical expenses can be part of the adoption process, freeing you of the financial burden that may have made you consider abortion in the first place.
