Peeking into the Womb


Jan 27 2014
A Christian response to advancing ultrasound technology.

Expecting parents can look to Mary, who knew before giving birth that she would be having a boy, and that his life might well be an unusual one. After overcoming her fear at the angel's news, she told him, "I am the Lord's servant. May it be to me as you have said." Her son's life brought her great joy and great sorrow. And though most of us will never experience the depths of joy or sorrow she must have felt as Jesus' mother, she models a posture we can take as we welcome the glorious, messy, mysterious gift of life that enters the world upon the birth of each and every human being.
