Summary The afterlife is often a concern during fragile moments of reproductive loss. The historical church ignored the death of unborn beings and the precarity of pregnancy, focusing more on the soul than the body. A new approach to eschatology is needed that upholds emerging unborn life and the pregnant believer's moral agency
