As Life Begins

Posted by Elaine March 06, 2020 at 12:00 AM AEDT

In case you’re confused about when life actually begins, read on:
On August 30, 2019 it was reported that a South African doctor is facing charges of unprofessional conduct after telling a woman scientific facts about unborn children.

According to Sowetan Live, Jacques de Vos allegedly told a patient that “a foetus is a human” and claimed that abortion kills a human. After de Vos stated these scientific facts, his employment was terminated and he was prohibited from practising medicine.

De Vos is facing four charges of unprofessional conduct from the Health Professions Council of South Africa at an inquiry which has commenced this week. According to the report, de Vos allegedly “infringed” the patient’s “autonomy with his anti-abortion utterances.”

Human life begins at fertilisation as a single cell. Conception marks a change from cells produced by the father and mother, to a cell with a complete human genome that constitutes a new human being."

He continued: "The unborn life in the womb is undoubtedly human, and the evidence for this is overwhelming. As the parents are human — belonging to the species Homo sapiens — and the embryo is oriented to growing up just like them, the new living being is also human. That new life is obviously both very young and very small but is no less human than we are now. From a scientific and medical standpoint, the facts stated by Jacques de Vos are undoubtedly true.

God’s Word tells us all we need to know about when life began and how important we are to Him. Read it for yourself below:

God, You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. I thank you for making me so mysteriously complex!

Everything you do is marvellously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord!

You even formed every bone in my body when you created me in the secret place, carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something.

You saw who you created me to be before I became me! Before I’d ever seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for me were already recorded in your book.

Every single moment you are thinking of me! How precious and wonderful to consider that you cherish me constantly in your every thought!

This is just a portion of what God reveals about us and how very close He is. Read more about His love for you by clicking on this link: He knows everything about us.

Whether we accept or reject His love, it won’t change God’s love for us. But if we reject His love, there are consequences.

This is portrayed as being about a woman’s rights, but think for a minute about the impact this has on those who, as part of their work, must carry out the task of ending a baby’s life…

It makes no sense to me to think a baby isn’t human until they are placed into the arms of their mother, but if you kill them as they are entering into our world it’s ok?
When my adorable long haired Himalayan cat became pregnant, nobody doubted that there were really kittens growing inside her womb. Unborn kittens are never considered ‘worthless’ before they take their first breath.

If a baby isn’t human from conception, an abortionist wouldn’t see the need to offer a mother a last cuddle with her child and a memory keepsake.

Though it may make me unpopular with some people I will keep showing these posts in the hope that someone who currently approves of abortion may begin to think again. Our world is sinking into a dark place. If we don’t stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves, where will it end? We can’t sit on the fence! If we don’t protest against the slaughter of human life, then we agree with this horror. If we keep silent, evil will prevail!

It’s important to note that God won’t stand for too much more abuse of human life and He will return for those who love Him, just as He promised, but His love extends to everyone, regarless of what mistakes we’ve made in our life, including having an abortion. He waits patiently in the wings for you to decide to give your mistakes to God and accept His forgiveness.

It’s time to seek God while He still can be found! Read here for yourself

So why, is there such an onslaught on tiny humans, defenceless to protect themselves in the safety of their mother’s womb?

Attention, all! See the marvels of God!
He plants flowers and trees all over the earth,
Bans war from pole to pole,
breaks all the weapons across his knee.
“Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything.”
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

“Stand silent! Know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation in the world!” Psalm 46:10

For the day is coming when your proud looks will be brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted. On that day the Lord Almighty will move against the proud and haughty and bring them to the dust.
