As we do, I want to show you a beautiful photograph by photographer Michael Clancy.
During a spina bifida corrective operation at twenty-one weeks, while still within his mother’s womb, young Samuel thrusts his tiny hand through the surgical opening in his mother’s uterus and grabs the surgeon’s finger!

I need to prepare you this morning, and give you a warning.
Today’s message is about The Sanctity of Life.
‘Sanctity’ is a rather old fashioned word, but it is the only one that describes the qualities of:
These are the words we are going to use this morning to describe the conception, life and development of the unborn child as viewed from the heart of God.
It also deals with abortion.
For that reason, this message is NOT suitable for children.
If you are under the age of 15 this morning, can I please ask you to move into the Sunday School program where you will be have a great and enjoyable time with other children.
You may ask why I have set the age limit at 15.
You see, at 15, a child has the backing of our present government and legal system to have an abortion – without the consent of her parents.
In fact, simply by attending the ‘sick bay’ at your local college, your daughter – if found to be pregnant, can be offered the surgical procedure of an abortion.
She can be taken to an abortion clinic, assisted with an abortion, delivered back to school, return to class, and the parents NOT informed on what just happened!
As parents of a teenage daughter at school today, you have no legal right to be informed of the horrific ordeal your daughter just experienced!
Such is the legal standing of our society and government today!
Part of their pre-election propaganda - was their promise to protect the whales of the South Pacific from harpooning and death,
…to protect the Seals and Kiwis of our native bush and coastline from extinction,
….and yet they promote and allow the extermination and murder of over 17,000 unborn children through abortion each and every year in a country that claims the protection of God in our national anthem!
So, my reasoning is this.
If you are old enough to either get pregnant and be offered the procedure of abortion,
…or you are old enough to get a girl pregnant, you are old enough to know the truth about these things!
You see, statistics tell us that 20 out of every 1,000 women in NZ between the ages of 15 and 44 - have had an abortion.
