When does human life begin? Who has authority to decide when a life ends?
These are big questions. And our culture answers them by basically arguing for personal autonomy. In other words, “I can do what I want with my body.” And for a woman, she should be allowed to decide what she wants to do with the baby growing inside her.
But how should Christians think about these questions? Well, God’s Word is the standard for our morality. And it teaches that we’re not our own. We have a Creator who we’re accountable to. And he values life—born and unborn. He says that he records each of our days and declares the end from the beginning.
