This is the perfect time to meditate on several precious Bible verses that affirm the sanctity of human life. Consider memorizing them or highlight them in your Bible as a reference. When talking to your pro-choice friends, these powerful verses may be a key element in convincing them to reconsider their destructive view.
Human Life Has Intrinsic Value
“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8:4-5)
Life Begins at Conception
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalm 139:13-16, ESV)
“Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” (Psalm 51:5)
“Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:4-5)
