Let me tell you something: an unborn baby is human life. “Oh,” they say, “it’s not human life.” Well, if it’s not human life, what kind of life is it? You say, “Well, we’re not sure.”
All right, suppose I have a machine gun, and I know that somebody is standing behind a door, and I fire that machine gun. That’s murder, right? Now suppose I have a machine gun, and I know that nobody is standing behind that door, and I fire the machine gun. That’s not murder, right? But suppose I’m not sure whether or not somebody is standing behind that door. Thinking there may or may not be, I fire that machine gun. Am I, then, guilty if somebody dies? Yes.
You see, before I can take that life, I need to be sure of something: not whether or not that it is life, but that it is not human life. If everyone says, “We can’t be sure,” then I say—if you’re going to err, err on the side of life.
Jeremiah 1:5a says, “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.”
