In early pregnancy, this can be hard to imagine.

It's so important to be more informed on the developmental facts about your baby. So much happens so early on.

Some agree that human life starts at fertilisation, but question when it starts to matter. 

Is your baby valuable from day 1? If not – who decides when?

Is it 12 weeks? At viability? After birth?

Do they only matter if you want them to? 

Throughout all the changes in your life (and those to come), would you agree that you have always been you?

Your worth hasn't gone up and down depending on what you can or cannot do. It isn't measured by what others feel about you.

Your baby, though tiny, is a unique, living, precious human being – just like you. 

Something to think about... 

What makes any human life valuable?

At HOPE we believe that all human life is created equal. Whether or not you believe your life was created by God, would you agree that you have value simply by being a member of the human race?

Your life is precious not by what you do, but by who you are

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made... Psalm 139:13-14, the Bible
