The relationship between the unborn child and mother is not that of being adversaries, in the sense of establishing fetal “rights” vs. mother’s “rights” but of recognizing the fact that God views
the unborn child as a human being. As such, both mother and child have the possibility of entering into the Christian community through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Thus their relationship
becomes one of love, and one in which the Christian community seeks to express that love through the protection of both mother and child.

“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. Thanks you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship

Every day was recorded in your book!.” Psalm 139:13-16 TLB

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is the Father who is full of mercy and all comfort.
He comforts us every time we have trouble, so when others have trouble, we can comfort them with the same comfort God gives us.” 2 Corinthians 1:2-4 NCV
“When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! All these new things are from God who brought us back to Himself
through what Christ Jesus did. And God has given us the privilege of urging everyone to come into His favor and be reconciled to Him. For God was in Christ, restoring the world to Himself,
no longer counting men’s sins against them but blotting them out. This is the wonderful message He has given us to tell other.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 TLB
