Our lives have been fearfully and wonderfully made by our creator. Just as an artist would be deeply upset if someone were to come along and destroy the masterpiece he or she was painting before it’s completion, this is exactly what is happening with abortion. God is in our midst of creating beautiful masterpieces out of all of our lives and those who are still in the womb. The abortionists are on the rampage seeking to destroy all that God is creating before the final brushstroke is made.
Psalms 139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

The body is a masterpiece of exquisite design. Beautifully "engineered," it is governed by several hundred systems of control - each interacting with and affecting the other. The brain has 10 billion nerve cells to record what it sees and hears. Our skin has more than 2 million tiny sweat glands - about 3000 per square inch - all part of the intricate system which keeps the body at an even temperature. A "pump" in our chest makes the blood travel 168 million miles a day - equivalent of 6720 times around the world! The lining of the stomach contains 35 million glands secreting juices which aid the process of digestion.
My shining feet will never run on early morning lawn; my feet were crushed before they had a chance to greet the dawn. My fingers now will never stretch to touch the winning tape; my race was done before I learned the smallest steps to take. My growing height will never be recorded on the wall; my growth was stopped when I was still unseen, and very small. My lips and tongue will never taste the good fruits of the earth; for I myself was judged to be a fruit of little worth. My eyes will never scan the sky for my high-flying kite; for when still blind, destroyed were they in the black womb of night. I'll never stand upon a hill Spring's winds in my hair; aborted winds of thought closed in on Motherhood's despair. I'll never walk the shores of life or know the tides of time; for I was coming but unloved, and that my only crime. Nameless am I, a grain of sand, one of the countless dead; but the deed that made me ashen grey floats on seas of red. (Fay Clayton, Christian Crusade Weekly, Jan. 18, 1976)
It is my conviction that even before we were conceived, God had a plan and purpose for our lives through His infinite foreknowledge. As intricately as He as planned and designed our physical bodies, God has also planned and designed the life of our soul and spirit. But there are an innumerable number of choices and decisions we must make in order to come into the fulfillment of God's perfect design for our lives. As a result there are tremendous battles that take place in the heavenlies and in the earthly realms that have direct affects on us achieving the fullness of this wonderful gift of life that God has planned for us.
These are but a few of the involved processes and chemical wonders which operate to sustain this wonderful and fearfully made life. A young student had been impressed with the fact that most new products have some "bugs" that must be ironed out before they can operate efficiently. As he stood gazing at a chart showing the organs, nerves, arteries, and glands in the human body, he suddenly exclaimed, "Just think, the first time God put it together, it worked!"
As we look at the gift of life, we will see the whole panorama of our lives from the moment of conception in the womb till the time we return to the earth. We will see the battle that goes on between God and the devil for our lives from the moment we are conceived till the time we die. It is a battle for life!
Abortion Is A Ploy Of Satan To Thwart God's Plan.
Satan attacks and destroys God's creative works with any weapon he can conceive. He has now been successful at using our own laws of the land as an effective weapon of destruction. He has infiltrated our society, feeding on the selfishness and greed of man to legalize his pattern of destruction and killing; convincing us that the killing of unborn children is a woman's choice.
