What If Human Life Begins at Conception?
If human life begins at conception, we should protect it from conception at all costs. If we are unwilling to protect human life at its beginning stages, we will not respect life at its end stages either. If life can be devalued at conception, then it can be devalued for any reason at any time. There are a number of reasons why we should protect life at conception.
The question is, “Does human life begin at conception?” A more basic question is, “What is human life?” Human life is different from any other life on this planet. Human life is unique. Life in general has three basic aspects. One is, it is able to reproduce itself. The other is, it is able to mature. Then, life produces after its kind. Human life does all of these, plus it is created in the image and likeness of God. Thus, the spirit of a human being has God-like attributes. Also, human beings are created to live forever. This does not make us little gods. It does enable us to communicate with God. All other organic life is not able to do this. Only human beings can worship God and walk in fellowship with Him.
Another question is, “At what time does an embryo become a human being?” This is the big one! If the embryo is a human being at conception, then he or she is protected by our Constitution. That person has a legal right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” That person also has a right to trial by jury, due process and all other God-given rights as stated in our legal documents. If the embryo becomes human after conception then we can do as we please with “it.” The answer to this question is rather straightforward.
Does it have the potential to reproduce itself? Yes! It can mature to the point that it can reproduce itself. Are the mother and father of the child human beings? This is the idea that like produces like. The parents are human thus the unborn child is human. At no point in his or her development is the child less human than at another time. The human embryo is made in the image and likeness of God at conception. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
Common sense is all that is needed. Only human beings are born sinners. David said in Psalm 51 that he was a sinner from conception. David also tells us in Psalm 139 that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” So, the original question can be answered with another question. “At what time is the embryo less than a human being?” The answer is, “At no time is the embryo less than a human being!” The human embryo does not go through evolutionary stages. The “proof” of this that was given years ago turned out to be a hoax. This idea has been proven false a long time ago. For example, “gill-slits” in the human embryo do not match up with fish gills. The “tail” is another example. It turns out to be not a tail at all. There is no scientific evidence that would suggest the human embryo goes through evolutionary stages of development. The human embryo is distinctly human at all stages of his or her embryonic development.
The baby’s development from conception to birth can be likened to a product being assembled on an assembly line. Take for example, a car. You start at the beginning and build the frame and put all the parts on it. When you finally come to the end, you have a fully functional car. What if someone came up with the idea that we should clear the assembly line because this thing is not a car. This is nothing except a pile of junk. If such a thing happened, the plant would be shut down and we would go back to the horse and buggy days. The baby in the womb is on an “assembly line.” First you have two cells that come together. Then the process of making a baby kicks into operation. All the “parts” are put together along the line and nine months later out comes a fully functional baby boy or girl. It would be just as silly to stop the production of this baby as it would be to stop the production of a car. A baby is much more valuable than a car!
Micah 6:7b says, “Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” This is a good question. Notice this Scripture calls an unborn child “the fruit of my body.” This would indicate a “baby in the womb” is not a part of a woman’s body. It is the “fruit” of the woman’s body. The “baby in the womb” is a separate individual from the mother. He or she is developing in the mother’s body. The mother is nourishing and protecting the baby during his or her stages of human development. The baby is a guest of the mother. The mother is a self-sacrificing, loving host of her baby. She would never think of harming her baby in any way. Her motherly instinct would not let her do such a thing. Because of this, at no time should a baby be torn from its mother’s womb. To do so, a person would be guilty of destroying a human life and bring remorse on the whole family.
To you mothers out there who were conned into having an abortion, I want you to know God will forgive you. Not only will He forgive you, He will also heal the hurt you have suffered from it. Realize your baby is safe in the arms of Jesus. Your aborted baby is in heaven. Just turn from your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior. Find a Bible-believing, Christ-centered pastor that will help you through this trauma in your life. Get with Christians who will help you as well. God bless you and help you to find such a pastor and a fellowship of Christians.

I’ve been a spiritual seeker for many years now and I’ve always been interested in reading books about spirituality, self-improvement, healing and learning as much as I could for quite some time. I feel like I’ve been blessed by aligning myself with some of the best spiritual teachers through workshops and individual counseling sessions. I’ve had to overcome a lot of obstacles in my life, due to family issues, and I needed a lot of guidance.
One of my mentors was a counselor in Houston, Texas. I spent almost ten years working with this woman who whole-heartedly believed in the power of affirmations. It was sort of like going to confession in the Catholic Church. We would have our session where we would talk about issues, and then I would be assigned my so called homework. Instead of ten “Hail Mary’s” and five “Our Father’s”, it would be to write this affirmation 25 times: “I begin to bless everything that comes into my life as good, good, good.” Then I would write this affirmation in first person with “I”, second person: “You begin”, and third person: “Laureen, begins to.” The reasoning is that yes, I need to affirm myself. When writing in second person, it’s as if someone that I trust is talking right to me. In third person, it’s as if it were written, and already true.
Over the course of 10 years, I have written thousands of affirmations. I’ve written affirmations of healing from past childhood traumas, healing of relationships, healing from a divorce and healing from career changes. I was basically reprogramming my conscious and subconscious negative thoughts into positive “affirming” thoughts. Instead of believing in a “negative belief” that no longer works for me, I worked on accepting and affirming the “positive” experiences from the situation.
In the beginning, I would complain that my hands would get tired from all the writing, but the repetition imprints the affirmation into the subconscious mind. Also, the more times you write an affirmation, the more emotionally involved you get. How can you write “I am healthy in mind, body and spirit” dozens of times, without believing it? Writing, helps you believe it, feel it, and reprogram your mind.
I’ve written affirmations down in journals and post-it-notes around the house. I’ve typed in affirmations on my computer and printed some of them in large type and pasted it to my wall, such as: “The more money I spend, the more money I receive from the Universe”. I tend to like this one a lot! I’ve even taped myself speaking affirmations, so I can listen at home, while I’m doing yoga. I find there isn’t such a thing as too much. We spend so much of our lives in negative surroundings, whether that be at work, or at home, with our family, friends or even watching TV.
When I was in music school, I was a vocal performance major. I use to hear all the time from various students (some instrumentalists), “I can’t sing.” Well, who told them they couldn’t sing, and why did they believe it? I’ve found through years of singing, performing and teaching, that very few people are actually tone deaf. So, why do so many people believe they can’t sing? It’s because someone told them to be quiet in church when they were singing, and from then on, they adopted a negative belief system about singing. Just because they may not have had a pretty voice, or a professional voice, is not the same thing as they “can’t sing”. I found myself coaching a few of these people for my sight-singing class, and lo and behold, they could it.
Not all of us can afford coaches, or counselors, or professionals to help us. But, one thing we can do is help ourselves by working with affirmations. The one great thing about affirmations, is that there is so much information out on the Internet about affirmations. What I like to do is to search through a lot of written affirmations in healing, prosperity, health, career, relationship issues, and find the ones that I like. Then I re-word the affirmation into something that feels right to me. I always make sure that the affirmation is written in the “present” tense and that it is positive and specific.
Some affirmations have a bit of a “charge” let’s say. What I mean by a “charge” is that you are stating something positive, but you’re feeling some negative emotions as you write. All this means, is that somehow, you’re not quite sure you actually believe this, and there is some healing to do in this area. As you keep writing the affirmation, there can be a whole series of emotions flowing, if you allow yourself to go through the process. The experts say that the subconscious mind doesn’t know what is real, or not real. So, why not give ourselves the best positive belief system, to replace the negative beliefs we’ve adopted through the course of life? Changing our beliefs, is like giving ourselves a new life, a new outlook and a new future that’s based on positive beliefs.
When I was going through a difficult time in my life, I use to write “I now release all fears and resentments”, over and over again. It was difficult, because I was in fear, and I had a lot of resentments. I was tired of being depressed. I was tired of being fearful. What I had to do, was reprogram myself into releasing these negative feelings, so that I could live a joyful life. Even though, I didn’t initially believe that I could actually “let go” of those negative emotions, the more times I wrote the affirmation, the more relaxed I became.
I love affirmations so much, that I buy CD’s and audio downloads of so many wonderful teachers and healers, and I usually play them when I meditate or go to sleep. I find that continued use of affirmations changes my outlook, my productivity, and my joy and happiness. I even subscribe to a number of e-mail subscriptions from Unity’s Daily Word and Joel Osteen. I find that immersing myself in positive affirmations has helped me to grow significantly and has healed many wounds. I am now a much more joyful and positive person than I’ve ever been in my whole life.
My new affirmation of the day is “I choose positive words and experience positive results.” Have a great day!
