At what point does the baby (whether born or unborn) actually become a human being possessing a spirit? Does this happen when the child is 18 years old, and is said to be an adult? Does this happen when the child says it’s first words? How do we know when this happens? We could assume it takes place at the age 18, which would make it seem ok to kill anybody under 18. That would be silly, wouldn’t it? Who is to say that the baby isn’t a real human until it leaves the womb? This is what the pro-choice argue, but do they have any proof of this? Can it be backed with scripture? Absolutely not! It is nothing more than an assumption, at which, they are not capable of backing with any real proof!
Nowhere in the entire Bible does it give us even a hint that the child does not become a human being with a spirit until it leaves the womb!
Luke 2:21, “And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.”
2 Kings 4:17, “And the woman conceived, and bore a son at that season that Elisha had said unto her, according to the time of life.”
If you take the word ‘conceive’ in the above verse and look it up in it’s Hebrew roots, we are given the Hebrew word harah, which interprets to: “A primitive root; to be (or become) pregnant, conceive (literally of figuratively): – been, be with child, conceive, progenitor.” For a woman to conceive, it literally means that she is now WITH A CHILD. What do the pro-choice tell us? That it’s not really a child, but just a mass of tissue! Sounds like those who believe we came from apes, and are still just a mass of tissue ourselves!
An unborn child is still a person in the eyes of God: The Bible is clear that God formed us in our mother’s womb, and He knew us before we were even CONCEIVED!
Genesis 25:23, “And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.”
God is saying that there are two persons living in this woman’s womb, and each of them will bring fourth a nation.
Isaiah 49:1, “Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb…”
Here we see the Lord calling somebody from the womb… clearly, the person was there, or God would have been calling nothing from the womb. The Bible is also clear that He knew us from the womb:
Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Also notice in the above verse how God sanctified and ordained somebody before they were even born! How could this take place if there was not a real human being present in the womb?
Here’s another verse that helps show us how God brought David out of his mother’s womb…
Psalms 22:9, “But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.”
Can a mass of tissue be filled with the Holy Ghost? Can a mass of tissue leap for joy? Apparently, John the Baptist was much more than tissue, as we can see in the following verses…
Luke 1:15, “For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.”
Luke 1:44, “For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”
