What I Believe (by Elder Nelson)

February 12th, 2009

As sons and daughters of God, we cherish life as a gift from Him.

His eternal plan provides opportunities for His children to obtain physical bodies, to gain earthly experiences, and to realize their divine destinies as heirs of eternal life.

HPIM3720 edited background

This war called abortion is a war on the defenseless and the voiceless.

It is a war on the unborn.

A woman’s choice for her own body does not include the right to deprive her baby of life—and a lifetime of choices that her child would make.

Life is precious!

No one can cuddle an innocent infant, look into those beautiful eyes, feel the little fingers, and kiss that baby’s cheek without a deepening reverence for life and for our Creator.

Life comes from life.

It is no accident.

It is a gift from God.

Innocent life is not sent by Him to be destroyed.

It is given by Him and is naturally to be taken by Him alone.

(Quotes from: Abortion: An Assault on the Defenseless by Elder Russell M. Nelson)

What a beautiful post, Heidi! I think I read something like that in the Ensign a couple months back. I loved it! Thanks for personalizing it!

Great talk, espcially for those who “waiver” with how they truly feel about abortion.
