What Does The Bible Say About The Unborn Baby? By Leon Brashear

The Bible teaches that it is sin to kill an innocent human life on purpose

Genesis 9:6 “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man

Proverbs 6:16-17 “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

Is there anything more innocent that a child in the womb?

A look at Luke 1 and 2 will show us how God views the unborn baby:

Lk. 1:41, 42 [41] And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
[42] And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Lk. 2:12, 16 [12] And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. [16] And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

In Lk. 141, 42 John the Baptist is referred to as “the babe…in her womb”.  In Lk. 2:12 and 16 Jesus is referred to as a “babe” in a manger.

With reference to the word “babe” Vine’s Expository of NT Words has, ” denotes (a) “an unborn child,” as in Luke 1:41,44 ; (b) “a newborn child, or an infant still older,” Luke 2:12,16 ; 18:15 ; Acts 7:19 ; 2 Timothy 3:15 ; 1 Peter 2:2.” (www.studylight.org/dictionaries/ved/b/babe.html)

Luke 18:15 “And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.”

Acts 7:19 “The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.”

2 Tim. 3:15 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

1 Pet. 2:2 “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”

Please look at the words in bold type on this page (emphasis mine, lb).

The same word is used to refer to the unborn child in the womb and to the child after birth.  The devil has deceived many into believing it is ok to abort a child when in reality it is murder.
