A Precious Child’s Life.

As you gather with your family and friends think about, what if someone in your family was never born. How would that change the dynamic of your family, would your family be more serious, funnier, or as close. Or even think of a friend that is near and dear to you, what would it be like if they were never born.

As you know death is the last thing that God wants to have happen to us. The worse punishment that can happen is being killed, so why should a baby in side its mothers womb have to be killed.
