Babies conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) are “knit together by God” in the womb like babies conceived in the traditional manner, according to notable Bible teacher John Piper.

In an episode of “Ask Pastor John” posted to DesiringGod.org on Monday, Piper was asked by a listener named “Carly” about how to explain the Christian perspective on babies conceived by IVF.

The question of being “knit together” derives from Psalm 139:13, which reads, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
