Children are a heritage, and a reward, and are so to be accounted, blessings and not burdens; for the GOD who sends mouths will also sends food if we trust in Him.

"Behold, children are a heritage of the LORD. The fruit of the womb is His reward. (Psa 127:3 HNV)
"Behold, children are a heritage of the LORD." This points to another mode of building up a house, namely, by leaving descendants to keep our name and family alive upon the earth. Without this what is a man's purpose in accumulating wealth?
To what purpose does he build a house if he has none in his household to hold the house after him?
What is the purpose of gathering wealth and acquiring broad acres of real estate if he has no heir?
Yet in this matter a man is powerless without the Lord. Hundreds of wealthy persons would give half their estates if they could hear the cry of a babe born of their own bodies. Children are a heritage which the LORD Himself must give, or a man will die childless, and thus his house will be unbuilt.
"And the fruit of the womb is his reward," or a reward from God. He gives children, not as a penalty nor as a burden, but as a favor. They are a token for good if men know how to receive them, and educate them. They are "doubtful blessings" only because we are doubtful persons. Where society is righteously in order, children are regarded, not as burdens, but as an inheritance; and they are received, not with regret, but as a reward.
If we are overcrowded in our cities, and so seem to be embarrassed with too large an increase in our population, we must remember that the LORD does not order us to remain in this narrow island, but would have us fill those boundless regions and spaces which wait for the axe, the plow, schools, churches, factories, and businesses. Yet even here, with all the straits of limited incomes, our best possessions are our own dear offspring, for whom we bless God every day. -- PSALMS (The Treasury of David)
OUR CHILDREN ARE MORE OF GOD'S CHILDREN. THEREFORE, ABORTION AND ABANDONMENT OF CHILDREN ARE GREAT SINS!
Children are the flesh and blood of their parents. It is a shocking manner, and is so irrational and unnatural, to abort them, abandon them, or to throw them away. And their wickedness is increased even more because these infants and children are not only their own, but also of the LORD'S!
IS YOUR PROSTITUTION A SMALL SIN, AND NOT ENOUGH, THAT YOU ENGAGE ALSO IN CONTRACEPTION AND ABORTION?
