Learning in the Womb, Learning from the Womb

Job 10:10-11
"Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews."

January 22, 1973 marks the disastrous turn in American law that granted women the so called right to kill their unborn babies. The Bible makes it abundantly clear that the unborn child is a human being who is known and loved by God as He knits it together in the womb. Science knows that even when it is a single fertilized cell, the unborn child is uniquely human. Now science is learning in the womblearning the truth of what the Bible has told us all along about the individual human nature of the unborn child.

Research is confirming that even before birth children in the womb are learning about the world. The child in the womb does much more than simply hear sounds, including its mother's voice. The child also becomes familiar with odors in the outside environment.

To test what newborns were thinking, scientists very cleverly hooked up a pacifier to a tape recorder. They then rewarded a particular sucking pattern with various sounds such as mother's voice. They found that the infants would concentrate on a pattern that would produce their mother's voice. In another test, women's voices, and even their father's voices, were not favored over mother's heartbeat – a familiar sound in the womb.

Even science is beginning to agree that life in the womb is nothing less than a normal stage of human existence. Like every other stage of life, life in the womb includes learning new things and developing relationships. If only this knowledge was applied to the abortion debate.
  

Prayer: 
Dear Father, I ask that You would not turn Your face from us because of the millions of infants killed by abortion. Millions of Your people reject abortion. Grant us strength to uphold Your truth wisely and end the deaths. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
