From Conception to Birth

It is a rather amazing fact that the more science learns the harder it is to deny a Creator. We are now able to look inside the womb in ways that have never before been known.  What is being revealed is but a confirmation of those words penned a very long time ago, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalms 139:14).  What the author, King David, clearly understood is being underscored for us now through science.  And if the case is so clearly made then it demands of us to reassess what we believe to be true about life and ending life though abortion.  This is, as Alan Keyes so often states, an absolute moral imperative.  But before the issue can become an imperative for our society it must become one for us as individuals.  I hope you will consider this while watching and listening to this video.

    Am my missing something? Is this blank for reason? I can’t see anything at all. Is it my browser or something?

    I don’t know. The youtube video shows up fine in firefox, safari and chrome on my mac computer.

    I was absolutely riveted by this video. I am viscerally reminded of watching my own kids in the womb. (This video, amazing as it is, still did not capture the way babies move in utero. In particular, I’m reminded of watching my son, Austin, just 8 ½ weeks developed, as he zoomed around in my womb, my perfectly formed baby man.)

    But I’m also reminded of another unborn child, “just” 9 weeks developed. (Make sure you watch the entire video, not just the first half.) She lived and died nearly three decades ago. She wasn’t my child. It wasn’t my business. It wasn’t my choice. So I said nothing. I did nothing. Nothing but stand by silently, witness to the execution of an innocent child. There are no words to describe how desperately I wish I had seen a video like this before that tragic, irreversible decision was made. I’ve been told that nothing I could have said or done would have changed the outcome – that the aborting woman was bound and determined to follow through with the abortion. But I would have tried. And I would not be living now with this regret and guilt that still sometimes overwhelms me decades later. Who knows, maybe, just maybe, there would be one less woman living with the knowledge of having taken her own child’s life, and one less father with a shattered heart.

    I guess I’ll never know.
