An unforgetable decision: Abortion

When Does a Human Life Begin?

The biggest area of debate in the abortion question hinges on when life begins.  Those who favor abortion argue that it doesn’t begin until birth or sometime near then, when the child could be viable on his or her own.  Others point out that at the moment of conception a unique genetic package comes into existence that contains everything that person will become—from height, size of feet and color of eyes, to intelligence and basic personality.

A major area of debate about abortion is whether the fetus is human.  Let’s see what the Word of God reveals concerning this question.

Matthew 1:18Matthew 1:18
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

Nacimiento de Jesucristo 18 El nacimiento de Jesucristo fue así: Estando comprometida María, su madre, con José,i antes que vivieran juntos se halló que había concebido del Espíritu Santo.j

14 Y el Verbo se hizo carnen y habitóñ entre nosotros lleno de gracia y de verdad;o y vimos su gloria,p gloria como del unigénito del Padre.

:  “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father….”

When did God become flesh?  Was it at conception?  Was it at birth?  Was it at a point in time between conception and birth?

The Holy Spirit carried the divine nature, so Jesus was God in the flesh from conception when the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary.  Just as Jesus was God from conception, a human being begins life at his conception.  The “miracle of life” certainly is a miracle.  A human being is formed from 2 single cells fusing together in a female.  The cells divide and differentiate forming tissues and organs.  After only 18 days of growth, a heartbeat can be detected.  After 21 days, the eyes, spine and digestive system become visible.  After 40 days, brain waves can be detected.  At 8 weeks, the toes and fingers are formed.  At just 18 weeks, the baby can move on it’s own.  Abortions are performed even after all of these things have occurred.

44 porque tan pronto como llegó la voz de tu salutación a mis oídos, la criatura saltó de alegría en mi vientre.

: “For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”

What does this verse reveal about the unborn having human feelings and emotions?

Jeremiah 1:5Jeremiah 1:5

5 «Antes que te formara en el vientre,j te conocí,k y antes que nacieras, te santifiqué,l te di por profeta a las naciones».m

: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

How early in our lives does God know us?  When does He devise a purpose for us?

Leviticus 17:14Leviticus 17:14
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

14 porque la vida de toda carne es su sangre. Por eso he dicho a los hijos de Israel: “No comeréis la sangre de ninguna carne, porque la vida de toda carne es su sangre, y cualquiera que la coma será eliminado”.

For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

Medical science has shown us that within a few days of conception, the tiny embryo attaches itself to the wall of its mother’s uterus to begin receiving oxygen and nutrients from the mother’s blood supply.  Within four to five weeks (before many women even know they are pregnant), an identifiable blood system has already developed in the new baby. By six weeks a beating heart is discernable.

For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.
