18 Thinking Biblically about Abortion Psalm 139 :13 – 16 For you created my inmost being; For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Job 31:15 NIV 15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?

Psalm 106:37 37 They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to false gods Romans 12:2 (NIV) 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
