Questions such as what counts for human life, at what point does this scared life begin, and what counts as this life?

If we turn to the philosopher Ronald Dworkin he wrote in 1994 at length about abortions and how we should preserve human life no matter what. Dworkin wrote that we must ask ourselves questions as humans if we have authority over our lives we will excel.

The baby in the dream could signify your inner child and that you need to stop, listen and focus on YOU right now. It means the real you is being aborted, and you need time to yourself to regenerate.

What is the biblical meaning of an abortion dream?
Biblically the dream about abortion can be quite spiritual and of course, biblical which is why you are here. In my view, the dream symbolizes a woman's fear or anxiety about becoming pregnant, or the ambivalence about carrying a child to term. Therefore, if you are having a baby then this is a natural worry. The dream may also represent your grief or regret over terminated pregnancies. Now, we all know that dreams have changed the lives of many people in the bible. For example, Joseph was able to interpret Pharaoh's dreams and save his people from famine. When God communicates with us through dreams, it can be a powerful experience. Symbolic dreams in the Bible can reveal God's will for our lives and can be interpreted as such.
Let's now look at scripture. Several passages may be relevant to the topic. The punishment for causing a woman to miscarry is equated with murder in Exodus 21:22-25. According to King David, God knit him together in his mother's womb in Psalm 139:13-16, suggesting that life begins at conception. Abortion may therefore be considered morally wrong by those who believe the Bible is the authoritative source of morality and ethics. These passages may, however, be interpreted differently by others, or they may not be relevant to your dream. Therefore, this is about new beginnings and life.
