Respect Life!!! In Luke 1:44 God uses the Greek word “brephos” to describe how the as-yet unborn John the Baptist “leaped in the womb for joy” while in the presence of the unborn Christ. In the very next chapter the same word “brephos” is used to describe the already born baby Jesus (Luke 2:12). God sees them as babies, whether born or unborn, with all the God-given human dignity and the same right to life afforded to adults.
