1. Is It a Baby?

From the recording Messages That Matter

I wrote and recorded this song in 1986. You will hear our daughter Megan's baby voice in the background.

I wrote the song to speak out on behalf of pre-born children everywhere. Why? Because I believe God created each baby as a gift to the woman who holds that child in her womb. Regardless of financial circumstances or anything else, that pre-born baby is a great gift from God and is more valuable than anything monetary! They will bring more joy too!

Unless the pregnancy is ended, that pre-born baby will be born beautiful or handsome with many of its parents' characteristics. This is by God's design! Every child is meant to be a treasure to the woman and the family they are born into. Abortion ends that!

Is it a baby? We know that at 6-weeks, that pre-born baby's heart begins beating, and his or her brain functions are working. As the process continues, the pre-born baby reacts to things that affect the mother, including the food she eats and the things she drinks during pregnancy. The mother and child are beautifully connected! Abortion ends that connection!

Is it a baby? Yes! Many years ago, at the Museum of Science in Industry in Chicago, I saw a display of pre-born babies who died for medical reasons while in the womb. They were put on display at the museum so that people could see the development of a pre-born child. After seeing that display, I knew I had to speak out and sing out on behalf of these innocent pre-born babies. Red and Yellow, Black and White, they are precious in His sight!

Is it a baby? Yes! Please don't listen to those trying to deceive women (and men) that a pre-born baby is no more than a blob of tissue. If that were true when in the pregnancy process, did you and I morph into being valuable humans created by God. Spiritually speaking, when we are born, we have a spirit in us. The spirit part of even pre-born children will live forever. When they are killed in the womb, they leave this life immediately for the eternal without a chance to live. I believe we will see them in eternity. God doesn't just blot them out! There are many scriptures to back this up. (Read Job 3:13-16 & 24)

If God allows conception, we must believe there is a purpose in that precious tiny little life, and it is not to cast him or her away! Today in America, people can even have abortions way past when a preemie baby can survive outside of the womb. That is sad and painful for the pre-born baby!

You and I are important and loved by God, and every pre-born baby is too! If you are facing an unwanted pregnancy, please don't consider ending "its" life before he or she has a chance to live. If you can't take care of the child, there are multitudes of families waiting to adopt because they can't get pregnant. Let me also say we need to make adoption much more affordable.

In ending, If you have had an abortion, just ask God for forgiveness. This song is not meant to condemn or judge you. I am judging the issue, not any person. Believe me, God will forgive anything if we come to Him and ask Jesus Christ for His mercy and grace. God will forgive us for anything if we confess, repent, and ask for forgiveness. You can do that now.

Many women have had abortions and realized later the mistake they made. Many of these same women are now speaking out helping others who have done the same thing and now regret it. God loves you and will do the same for you!


Is it a baby wrapped inside you,
or is it too early to know?
A little heart beats while many pretend
it has no mind, body, or soul.
God knows just who they are
and who they're supposed to be.
And says woe to those who would hurt one of these.

Is that a baby in anguishing pain,
with salt burning through "it's" eyes?
Arms desperately reach for moments of life,
But no one seems to hear the cries.
But God knows, He watches it all.
He knows just who's to blame,
For the death of the child who never had a name.

Yes, it's a baby wrapped inside you,
that you're standing ready to kill.
For selfish desires, will you murder a child
that waits to be loved by you still.
You're it's only hope to survive,
it's a part of you, you're going to let die,
For a few moments of pain and a lifetime full of regrets.

You were a baby, a treasured prize
wrapped safely in your mother's womb.
He wants to love you, give him a chance to live!
Oh, let your heart make room
for the life, God wants to give.
She wants to love you, give her a chance to live.
Oh, let your heart make room
for the life, God wants to give.
Oh, let your heart make room
for the life, God wants to give.
