Jeremiah 1:1-5; The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:
2 To whom the word of the LORD came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, unto the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of
Josiah king of Judah, unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month. 4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying, 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I
Ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. KJV
KEY BIBLE VERSE: 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified
thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Persons have worth even before they are born.
God knew you, as he knew Jeremiah, long before you were born or even conceived. He knew you, thought about you, and planned
for you. When you feel discouraged or inadequate, remember that God has always thought of you as valuable and has had a purpose
in mind for you.

The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, once said the following…. “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Does that sound “good” to you?
And in a 1922 book entitled “Woman, Morality, and Birth Control”, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger wrote the following… “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
That is an unbelievably evil statement. And yet this woman is constantly being showered with praise in our public schools, in the lecture halls of our colleges and universities, and even in the halls of the U.S. Congress.
