“15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah,16 “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” 17 The midwives, however much they feared God, they feared Pharaoh more. So they did what the king of Egypt had told them to do. But so their consciences were clear, when they positively identified the male children, they left the babies part-way in the birth canal and snipped their spines unto their deaths. 18 Then the Hebrew women cried out against the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you killed our sons?”
19 The midwives answered the Hebrew women, “You are confused. We have not killed your son. We have killed a foetus, which does not actually become a human until it is fully birthed, at which point humanity is, albeit mysteriously, imparted to the being. We have performed what is termed a “partial-birth abortion” and thus our consciences are clear before God and before man.”
20 So Pharaoh was kind to the midwives and gave them special positions in his cabinet. 21 And because the midwives feared Pharaoh more than they feared God, they were very pleased with themselves.”
And so, to this day, the Israelites remain enslaved to the Egyptians, for their deliverer, Moses, was killed in the womb at the hand of his own people.
