Today marks the celebration of Sanctity of Human Life! As a new mother to a beautiful daughter, my heart spills over with joy that we have a special day to ponder what a miracle human life is. We have an awesome Creator and as believers CANNOT deny the fact that life begins in the womb.
Jeremiah 1:5 states, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee…”
Psalm 139:13-14 reads, “…thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
If you were to look up “sanctity of human life” in the Wikipedia encyclopedia you would find that it describes it as: the idea that human life is sacred and holy and precious. Life is just that!
Sanctity of Human Life was made an annual proclamation by President Ronald Reagan noting the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade (when the Supreme Court issued a ruling that guaranteed women access to abortion). President Reagan was a firm pro-life believer. President Bush continued this Sanctity of Human Life proclamation during presidency; however, President Clinton discontinued the practice for all 8 yrs of his presidential term. What a shame!
As I remember the moment that I found out I was pregnant and expecting a little child, I was overwhelmed realizing how blessed I was! God had chosen to “breathe life” into me and give me the privilege of carrying a tiny soul for 9 months as He created her and fashioned her into the beautiful little girl she became!
Life, without a shadow of a doubt, began at conception.
A precious soul was born
And now this little life just celebrated her 5 month birthday!
