Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” —Jeremiah 1:4-5

The builder knew what he was going to do before he began the construction. Even before the building was completed he set it apart for special purposes. He then appointed the building to be the special place of relaxation for him and his family. This had been planned for years and now it had come to pass.

The verses above make it very clear. It is the Lord God Almighty who forms a person in the womb and he has specific purposes for that person. So, over 50,000,000 persons that the Lord God Almighty was forming were purposely killed by abortionists. All these people were being formed by the Lord God Almighty and it seemed a small thing for those who killed them to destroy what the He was forming.

We in the U.S. have allowed this to happen. One thing that I particularly despise when people talk about this subject is the use of the Latin word “fetus.” Do you know what that word means?

1350–1400; Middle English < Latin fētus bringing forth of young, hence that which is born, offspring, young still in the womb, equivalent to fē- (v. base attested in L only in noun derivatives, as fēmina woman, fēcundus fecund, etc.; compare Greek thēsthai to suck, milk, Old High German tāan to suck, Old Irish denid (he) sucks) + -tus suffix of v. action

fetus (n.)
late 14c., "the young while in the womb or egg," from Latin fetus (often, incorrectly, foetus) "the bearing, bringing forth, or hatching of young," from Latin base *fe- "to generate, bear," also "to suck, suckle" (see fecund).

In Latin, fetus sometimes was transferred figuratively to the newborn creature itself, or used in a sense of "offspring, brood" (as in Horace's "Germania quos horrida parturit Fetus"), but this was not the basic meaning. Also used of plants, in the sense of "fruit, produce, shoot." The spelling foetus is sometimes attempted as a learned Latinism, but it is not historic.

When people hear the word fetus it sounds like nothing because they do not even know what the word means. I know this because I have asked people if they know. If people don’t understand the communication, how can they understand what is being communicated or what is happening? The use of this word as a euphemism has led to the destruction of many children and we in the United States are guilty! These were children and not some meaningless blob that could be removed like a wart. Those aborted were precious individuals that God was forming and man destroyed them. That is rebellion against God and that is satanically instigated as Satan is the destroyer (I Peter 5:8). Isn’t it time we take greater action to stop this?

Dear Father, help me to do the part You desire of me to help cease the murder of those You are forming in the womb. Please guide in this whole area in Jesus’ authority and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
