Psalm 139 is beautifully describes how God knew each of us before we were born, and how he had each day planned out for us even before our mother knew she was pregnant. This chapter is used by Christians in defense of the sanctity of human life. Verses 13-16 are especially powerful:

For you formed my inward parts;

                you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

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)

My Nephew

My precious nephew, Bridger

I decided to write a Pro-Abortion version of Psalm 139 to contrast how dark and barbaric a lot of the world’s stance on abortion is. Some still do not recognize that human life or “personhood” begins in the womb. They do not see each life as precious or unique. And the mother’s convenience and rights are put before the rights of the unborn child…

As my inward parts were forming slowly,

                You tore them apart in my mother’s womb.

I am just an unlovable blob of tissues, unremarkable and offensive.

Ordinary and made by accident;

                I do not have a soul to comprehend.

A rude interruption to her life,

my parasitic presence violated my mother’s rights,

               inconveniently taking up space in her body.

No one sees me, I’m unplanned and unwanted;

Deemed unworthy for life outside of the womb,

                No future and hope to look forward to,

                Soon I’ll be forgotten.
