Abortion
  Summary: Abortion is the slaughtering of a child that can feel pain, it is unbiblical, and it
  should be illegal. Abortion advocates say that a mother should have the right to choose to
  have an abortion because it is her body, however,  the unborn baby, whose body is
  mutilated by the abortionist, does not get a choice. 

 


Bible authors David, Isaiah, and Jeremiah each state that God recognizes babies inside the womb as humans with souls. Baby's inside the womb have God-given names--a fetus is not a piece of lifeless flesh. 


Psalm 22:9-10
"But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly."

Psalm 139:14-16 "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."
 

Isaiah 49:1 "Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name."

Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."

The Bible calls the developing "embryo" or "fetus" a child. Therefore, an abortion is the killing of a child.

2 Samuel 11:5 "And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child."

Ecclesiastes 11:5 "As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all."

God sees a completely developed human, even when we may only see a developing "fetus".

Psalm 139:16 "
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."

The child in Elisabeth's womb was a "son", not simply a fetus.


Luke 1:36
"And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren."

Luke 1:44 "For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy."

The following passage declares that abortion is an evil worthy of punishment.

Exodus 21:22-23 "If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,"

(Note: the Bible claims that vengeance is God's. People who attack abortion clinics and abortionists are nothing more than fools who are taking matters into their own hands.)
