Life In the Womb – Luke 1:39-56

From my reading in Luke 1:39-56 in the One Year New Testament.

One interesting story in Luke is when Mary went to visit her relative Elizabeth. Here’s what happened when Mary greeted them.

“At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.” Luke 1:41

Baby John the Baptist jumped within Elizabeth in response to Mary’s greeting! It is interesting that even in their respective wombs John the Baptist and Jesus had a special connection.

It would not have crossed Luke’s mind to call the baby in the womb a fetus or lump of tissue. No, clearly the child that leaped already had life!

I believe that as followers of Jesus we need to speak up for this who can’t speak for themselves, and seek to protect life in the womb. For a good explanation and arguments about the pro life position check out the short book Why Pro Life? by Randy Alcorn.
