Life begins...when?

I don't usually steal other people's pictures, but this is sort of special. I am so in awe that a picture like this could be taken in the womb and actually show the baby's face so clearly. He actually looks like his big brother Isaac! This is only at 30 weeks.
How could anyone ever think that this is not a person? That it is ok to put babies in the womb to death? Surely this little guy is "fearfully and wonderfully made." He is treasured by his Creator and by his parents, siblings, and extended family.

My inward parts were formed by Thee;
Thou ere my birth didst cover me;
And I Thy praises will proclaim,
For strange and wondrous is my frame.

Thy wondrous works I surely know;
When as in depths of earth below
My frame in secret first was made,
Twas all before Thine eyes displayed.

Mine unformed substance Thou didst see,
The days that were ordained to me
Were written in Thy book, each one,
When as of them there yet was none.
[from Psalm 139]

Well put Aunt Jane. I have to say I think of that verse often, and realize how much I really DONT know...and what a bigger picture that God has...and that it is already Perfect. To think that there was a time I had just Isaac, but that God had foreordained Esther, Gayle, and Eli, and perhaps someone just gives me goosebumps!
