When Does A Baby Become A Baby?

“I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” – Psalm 139:14a, 16

About half of the people in the United States say they are pro-life and the other half say they are pro-choice. How is this affiliation determined? For the most part, if you consider a fetus nothing but a blob of tissue within a woman’s body, you become pro-choice. If you believe that a fetus is a human being, you are pro-life. Who is right? Let’s see what God says.

The Psalmist says, “For You formed my inward parts; you wove me in my mother’s womb.” And then he goes on to say, “Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were written all the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.” God is the Creator of life, and each life is formed within a woman’s womb. Scripture is clear: a fetus is most certainly a human being from the moment of conception.

Some say that a fetus is nothing but a blob. God says a fetus is a person. Whose conclusion do you think is correct?
