the population of this country; it is also as much as eight times the total number of Jews who
were killed in the holocaust. But this is just the U.S., in 1987 alone the estimated number of
abortions worldwide was from 36 to 53 million.
Much of this is a result of the influence of the
United States. Dr. Stan Monteith, author and Christian Radio talk show host, states: To date it is
estimated that far more than one billion human lives have been terminated as a result of the
world-wide abortion programs financed by the United States.
What is Abortion?
Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy through the killing of the unborn infant by
various means. It doesnt matter when the abortion takes place because life begins at conception.
The fact that life begins at conception is agreed upon by the U.S. Supreme Court, the medical
community and by God himself in the Bible. In 1989 the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed in
Webster v. Reproductive Health Services that life begins at conception. The court let stand the
preamble to the Missouri law, which declared that life begins at conception.
Randy Alcorn, in his book ProLife Answers to ProChoice Arguments, points out that the
medical community is generally in agreement that life begins at conception. He writes: Medical
textbooks and scientific reference works consistently agree that human life begins at
conception. Randy quotes from five medical textbooks and from Time and Rand McNallys
Atlas of the Body and the Encyclopedia Britannica all of which agree that life begins when an
egg is fertilized by sperm to form a single cell zygote. Randy goes on to explain on how A
United States judiciary subcommittee invited experts to testify on when life begins. Some the
worlds most prominent scientists and physicians testified. They testified to the fact that life
begins at conception. One prominent Physician points out that although the pro-abortionists were
invited to testify, they did not produce a single expert witness who would testify that life
begins at any time other than conception. Only one witness said no one can tell when life
The Bible consistently acknowledges that pregnant women are carrying babies in their
womb. Two texts Jeremiah 1:5 and Psalms 139:13-18 show that life begins at conception. God
declared to Jeremiah that he knew him before he was formed in his mothers belly; he knew him
when he was an unformed mash of flesh: 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 (Jeremiah 1:15).
The Psalmist deals with this subject as well. He writes that he was protected in his
mothers womb and that God knew his full substance while he was yet an unformed mass:
thou hast covered me in my mothers womb. I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous
are thy works My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret Thine eyes did
see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in
continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them (Psalms 139:13-16).
In the above passage from Psalms, the phrase my substance yet being unperfect comes
from one Hebrew word, golem.
The New Strong's Dictionary of Hebrew and Greek Words
defines Golam as a wrapped (and unformed mass, i.e. as the embryo): substance yet being
unperfect. Hence the Psalmist was saying that God protected him and knew him when he was
