Can it be implied from Psalm 139:13–16 that the bible considers abortion to be murder?

Psalm 139:13-16 13For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15My 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. 16Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

New International Version

I absolutely believe that this scripture shows us that a life begins at conception in that God sees and knows us at that time, and planned and created us to be born. Before I became a Christian I didn't understand this and couldn't comprehend why it was wrong to abort an early fetus. It just seemed logical. Then I read God's word and studied it avidly as I still do. It was obvious to me that it was and is a human life and can not be destroyed. To do so IS murder.
