Life Begins—The Belo Project

Belo watercupsA handful of religious groups including the United Church of Christ and the two largest American Jewish movements, Reform and Conservative, all favor a woman’s right to have an abortion with few or no exceptions. (Pew Research) One artist, Belo, to raise awareness about the clean water crisis, created an image made from 66,000 cups of colored rainwater simulating levels of impurities found in water from all over the planet. His goal may have been to dramatically inform us of the consequences of a lack of drinkable water, but he’s also touched the hearts of many who oppose abortion for any reason.

Created almost four years ago, Belo’s amazing artwork is again making the rounds on social media to speak out against abortion. We hope that it moves you as much as it does us at the Stewardship Foundation. Watch the video on the Belo page or on YouTube.

After experiencing the video, remember this…

“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, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:13-16)

And from Jeremiah 14:5, “The word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’”
