A group of college students were debating this issue one day. Some said a mother has the right to do what she wants with her own body. Others pointed out the scientific fact that an unborn child is not part of the mother's body and has its own distinct DNA, blood type, fingerprints, etc.

Finally one girl pushed the discussion further by quoting from the Bible, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you..." (Jeremiah 1.5). "God's word," the girl went on to say, "says that the unborn are persons." At that moment, for just a few seconds, there was a noticeable pause in the debate. Like a thunderclap, her quote was a moment of truth that shook everyone's soul.

There is power in the word of God like none other on earth.
