Most militant atheists do not value human
life. The evidence is found in the fact that they are some of the most
ardent supporters of abortion. True Christians (and a great many other
believers) give great value to human life from conception until death. They
know that God is the author of life and dare not place themselves in His
position to decide if a newly conceived life should live or die. What
follows are some key scriptures that make God's will evident in this regard.

light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for
Killing the innocent
finds it's origins in Satan. It is he that gave birth to the attitudes of
arrogance that lead to taking away innocent lives. It is also he that hates
human beings and would love to destroy every single one of them. It is the
view of this author that atheists and others who support abortion are doing
44 You are of your
father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a
murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because
there is no truth in him.
God, on the other hand, values and protects life. Though he has the
prerogative to end any life that He has made, no one else has the wisdom, or
the right, to decide which human will live or die. To protect human life
from arbitrary decisions to kill, God has, therefore, "commanded" that
humans do not murder.
“You shall not murder."
in the womb was to be precious and to be protected. The seriousness of
harming an unborn is shown in the next passage where we see that harm to an
unborn was to be consequenced firmly, even if unpremeditated.
22 “If men fight, and hurt a
woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows,
he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband imposes on
him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
If the taking of human life was premeditated, the
consequence would have been the death penalty.
Moreover you shall
take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death:
but he shall be surely put to death.
Life is a great gift. God gives children as blessings. This is the message
that the scriptures emphasize continually.
And he will love you, and bless you, and multiply
you: he will also bless the fruit of your womb, and the fruit of your land,
thy corn, and your wine, and your oil, the increase of your kine, and the
flocks of your sheep, in the land which he swore unto your fathers to give
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his

you, and formed you from the womb, which

David understood that the formation of a baby in the mother's womb is God's
greatest act of creation.
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me
in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My
substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously
wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance,
yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in
continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Spontaneous abortion can be a curse which God has the prerogative of giving,
if he deems appropriate.

LORD: what wilt you give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry

taking His place is a statement of great arrogance. The created must submit
to the Creator not dare to stand in His place.
Nay but, O man,
who art you that replies against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that
formed it, Why have you made me thus?
Unless repented of, murderers have only one thing to look forward to:
But the cowardly,
unbelieving, abominable, murderers,
sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part
in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though
they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
"That which has been
conceived and lives in the mother's womb from conception on is referred to
by God as a "child," a "son," an "infant," a "baby," a "man-child," etc. The
woman in whose womb it lives is a "mother." No human being anywhere in the
Bible is identified by terms that are more distinctly human than these
terms. God makes no distinction between born and unborn life. He uses
exactly the same terms for both, therefore we should view them as having the
same nature." James L. Melton,

(23 January, 2009).
"Family...This, the very most important asset of any nation, is being
dismantled before our eyes. This year in America, abortionists will destroy
1.3-million future families-- future moms and dads and future scientists,
teachers, leaders, and workers. A significant part of our next generation
will be dismembered, their bloody, mangled bodies placed in plastic bags to
be incinerated. In the process, 1.3-million women-- the moms of these
aborted babies-- will be left grieving, experiencing strong loss and guilt;
many will become estranged from God and their own families, seeking
emotional relief in sexual promiscuity and substance abuse.
