Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, “When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.” But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live...And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families (Ex 1:15-17,21).As you read, the king of Egypt wanted to kill all the male babies that were born due to the rapid population increase of the Hebrews. He was scared that they would defeat him. These midwives feared God and did not obey the commands of someone who was supposedly the ultimate authority.
The sanctity of life is likened here to the fear of God. Why did the ladies fear God? Because they knew that God did not approve of the killing of innocent children. God blessed them for this and provided for them. It is something good for us to remember: the sanctity of life is associated with the fear of God. Therefore, it would seem logical to state that the people who are receiving/performing abortions do not fear God.
Let us be mindful of this in regards to abortion and "human rights."
