When is a baby actually a baby?

I don’t delve into politics much.  I have my opinions.  But I am not blogging about them.  Usually.  But I can’t help myself this morning.  Last night I caught a bit of the news.  A story came on in which the newscasters sounded just horrified as they discussed it.  The man reading the statement could hardly withhold his disgust.  Here is the gist of the story:

A “doctor” in Philadelphia had actually induced mothers with 6, 7, even 8 month old fetuses into labor, allowed the babies to be born, and then MURDERED them!

This IS horrible.   I feel sick inside when I hear of someone doing this.  Our minds can’t comprehend such evil.

But I was filled with such puzzlement.  Why is it so abhorrent when this tiny life is murdered outside the womb, but just a “late-term” abortion when it is inside the womb?  Why is the world appalled and shocked when the baby is delivered and then murdered…but not horrified when it is violently murdered inside it’s safe, warm environment?  I don’t get it.

It is quite a world that calls a living being a “human” when it is outside the womb, but a “non-human” when it is inside the womb.  It breaks my heart.  What have we come to in this country?  God have mercy on us.


Psalm 139: 13-16

For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
