After reading “Oak Park Temple Celebrates a Woman’s Right to Choose” [News, Feb. 22] my thoughts turned to some verses in the book of Psalms. I’m certainly not a Biblical scholar and can’t fully understand the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy, but I take joy in the richness of these words:

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;
Your works are wonderful.
(139:13.14 New International Version of the Bible)
