The Painting That Saved a Baby’s Life From Abortion

Last year, Ron DiCianni, an artist whose work is popular in evangelical circles, painted “Before I Formed You In The Womb.”

It had great personal meaning to him:

I painted Before I Formed You in the Womb to make a statement. A statement that each life is precious to the One who created it, namely God. No life is an accident, and each has a purpose. As someone who was scheduled myself to be aborted, that has been my own story as well as the promise we have in Scripture.

There is no reason, God helping us and His Church partnering with us, that this image can not be made available to every pregnancy center, every doctor’s office, every church and every sidewalk counselor to visually showcase God’s sacred design in each unborn life.

In an interview with TheBlaze, DiCianni’s son Grant says there has already been one case of a teen mother choosing life because of the painting. Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop “live birth abortions” after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
