Abortion stops beating hearts. Period.

The Developing Heart and Resultant Heartbeat

The developing heart originates about day 18 or 19 from the mesoderm and begins beating and pumping blood about day 21 or 22. It forms from the cardiogenic region near the head and is visible as a prominent heart bulge on the surface of the embryo. The primitive heart begins to form an S shape within the pericardium between days 23 and 28. The internal septa begin to form about day 28, separating the heart into the atria and ventricles, although the foramen ovale persists until shortly after birth.

Between weeks five and eight, the atrioventricular valves form. The semilunar valves form between weeks five and nine.

My Pondering

In regard to abortion, both science and God’s word support each other. As an unashamed Christian, when in doubt I pick God’s Holy Word over the worldly people’s theories and speculation every single day and twice on Sunday (which today it is as I am writing this) when conflicting or unsubstantiated. The Bible may not speak to everything imaginable but it speaks to everything necessary.

Did not He that made me in the womb make him?

and did not One fashion us in the womb?

Job 31:15

God is the creator not a pregnant women. She would have no life if not for God. To usurp God’s plan by abusing one’s free will largely for convenience, career or whatever’s sake is venturing into a dangerous place. Eve (and complicit Adam) thought the knew better than God by buying into the devil’s lies and sinful selfishness. This bad apple of abortion didn’t roll far from that tree.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood

Leviticus 17:11a

Life is in the blood, our largest organ. Blood is supremely precious for the sustainment of all mammals, including humans at every stage of development; both the pre and post born. Where there is blood flowing, when blood is doing it’s many jobs, there is life indeed.

Jesus shed His blood for the remission of our sins, a final sacrifice.

By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

Psalm 71:6

God is the creator of life. Let’s be grateful for the fragile life of our flesh. We should care for it more than anything physical.

For You formed my innermost parts;

You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb.

Psalm 139:13

God makes it happen, both the physical and spiritual – as we are hybrid beings. A person’s soul and body are both formed prior to birth. Science can detect a heart-beat but not a soul-beat, that’s off the charts in a different dimension.

You know the commandments: ‘DO NOT MURDER…

Mark 10:19a

It is a terrible and heinous sin to murder; to take the life of an innocent human. Who could be more innocent and helpless than a pre-born child?

If men fight with each other and injure a pregnant woman so that she gives birth prematurely [and the baby lives], yet there is no further injury, the one who hurt her must be punished with a fine [paid] to the woman’s husband, as much as the judges decide.

But if there is any further injury, then you shall require [as a penalty] life for life,

Exodus 21:22-23

Though we live in a supposedly more enlightened and civil society than when this was written, the principle has not changed: innocent lives should not be harmed.

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Act 2:38

We are all sinners. We were each born into sin. We all need to repent. There is forgiveness every sin except one and that’s not abortion. Sometimes, maybe often times, God uses our sin for His greatest glory. He often uses a repentant sinner as His greatest winner.

bearing graciously with one another, and willingly forgiving each other if one has a cause for complaint against another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so should you forgive.

Colossians 3:13

Be kind and tenderhearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32

The Bible call us hate what God hates and love what God loves. A tried and true saying is, “Love the sinner, hate the sin.”

We believes required forgiveness and thus should forgive too. And like the lady who was caught in adultery, Jesus forgave yet said to her ,”Go in peace and sin no more.”

In the 19th century, these United States rebuked indentured slavery with leadership including Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Englishmen Wilber Wilberforce, Harriet Tubman and predominantly Christian abolitionist from the north.

The 20th century key accomplishment was the crusade to ensuring equal rights no matter what gender or ethnicity including greats likes Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks and so many others.

I hope and pray, the 21st century, sooner than later, America and the whole world shall protect the rights of the living unborn.

The right to killing a pre-born child aka ABORTION is not in our Constitution however it states as follows;

“We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Preamble to Constitution for the United States of America

Should not ‘domestic tranquility’ include those beating hearts yearning for life in their mother’s wombs?

How about a ‘common defense’ of those pre-born person’s.

How about securing the ‘Blessings of Liberty’ to be born in the very first place?

Moving on to the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims boldly:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Being murdered in the womb certainly and unequivocally makes the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness utterly impossible.

It has been rightly said that you can judge a society by how it treats it’s most helpless and innocent among them. It’s long past time to protect our pre-born who certainly are the most helpless and innocent.

Will you join this most righteous cause and be their loud voice and swift feet to take every legal and moral action to help them?

God fashions us humans in the womb -Job 31:15

My Pondering

Does this passage NOT speak to the sanctity of life by Job’s rhetorical questions?

Furthermore, it speaks to the value of all human life which our wise founders framed in our Constitution, which by all people are created equal in the site of God.

This is what made our nation great and the God of the Bible, the greatest and only true God.

Unfortunately, then came along the dreadful, unconstitutional Roe vs Wade decision. It has been well said,

You can rightfully judge the a society in how it treats the least powerful, the most vulnerable among them.


I put forth three questions for you consideration regarding the topic of just abortion.

1. Can there be any more vulnerable and less innocent among us than a pre-born child?

2. Since a pre-born baby has different DNA than his or her’s mother, does not that make the child an unique person?

3. If a pre-child has a beating heart which can sense pain and possesses a soul, doesn’t that make the child a living human?

Are not the answers yes, yes and yes?
