Bring a folding chair (and an umbrella, if needed).

Rain or shine. This is a nationwide event for all prolifers.

There are no speeches or talking; just sit or stand in silence, as a silent testimony to the tragedy of abortion. Signs are provided.

Thank you for the reminder, Amicus.

Can anyone please direct me to the Bible verse where God forbids the termination of a pregnancy? The abortifacient herb myrrh is mentioned about a dozen times in scripture, but we are never told not to use it to terminate a pregnancy.

I know God used to prefer us not to eat eagle meat, wear clothing made of two kinds of cloth, seethe a kid in its mother's milk, etc., but I would imagine that if God were "pro-Life," there would be some Bible verse about it. Why isn't there?

And what do we make of Numbers 5:11-31? Sounds a lot like God commanding the Israelites to use an abortifacient, to me.

If you were writing to your government representative, how would your letter go? This is something you want changed at the federal level, right?

Daniel Dickson LaPrade,
How about: Ex 20:13 You shall not murder.

Or: Gen 9:6 Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed.

Hi Daniel,

There are many verses which show that the unborn child is a living person. He or she is an individual, who is known to God, even before his birth.

Offhand, one place is in Jeremiah, where the prophet realizes that he was called while still in his mother's womb.

Jer. 1: 4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 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.

So God is given credit for forming us in the uterus, and he knows us, even before we are formed!

Likewise, in Luke we see that John the Baptist was filled with the Holy Spirit while he was still a fetus or embryo. The prophecy says,

Luke 1: 15 "He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, while yet in his mother's womb."

Also, the unborn child in Mary's womb (although just an embryo, about a week old!!!) was recognized by the unborn child in Elizabeth's womb. --Interesting!-- Two unborn children, both human individuals:

Luke 1: 41 And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
42 Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the babe [tiny embryo!!] in your womb!
43 But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy."

Here the early-stage embryo and the late-stage fetus are both referred to as "babes." Elizabeth even states that the embryo is "my Lord."

Then we have Psalm 139, which praises God's wonderful works,

Ps. 139: 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth [i.e. in the uterus],
16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

So we are known to God even before our birth; he sees the unborn babies. We give him credit for our fetal development.

Here is a website that can help you find other verses, in addition to the ones above,

I will leave it to others to recommend how to write letters!

I personally feel that the best approach is the help women find alternatives to abortion; for example, I support our local pregnancy center which provides financial help, baby clothes & furniture, diapers, counselling, referrals for housing & other services, info. about fetal development and adoptions, etc.

Sometimes I get the impression that people want a list in detail of 'do this' and 'don't do that.' They miss the beauty of the Bible and seeing something for themselves.
