Respect Life!!!  The psalmist David writes in Psalm 139:13, 14, "You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works! My very self you knew…" Life is a gift from God. It is He that weaves us in the womb. To stop that life is an act of defiance against God and His will.
