Abortion is one of the worst things happening on this earth today, there isn't any real debate over that. The people that support abortion are either clueless about what it really is because they choose to stay oblivious, or they are just willfully evil, knowing that it is murder. Somehow though, there is debate about this among people that call themselves Christian and so I am going to talk about exactly what the bible has to say on the matter.
Now the most obvious thing is that God commands us never to murder anyone. This is very clear and I think everyone understands it. The issue comes in when we start pretending that certain thing aren't murder. Life absolutely begins at conception, this isn't an extreme thing to think and no one has the right to take that life away aside from God himself. We waste a lot of time debating on women's rights but that isn't even the issue. What matters is that the baby is alive too and its rights are being violated completely. All you need to read is the law in Exodus to understand exactly how God sees a baby still inside the womb. The baby has equal rights to a full grown man and they were punished for murder if someone caused a woman to lose her baby. Something you should know, is God doesn't make any distinction on how far along the woman's pregnancy is for this law to matter.
God knew and loved us even in the womb. He carefully designed all of us in his image without a single exception. All of us are priceless, nothing on this Earth is more important than a human life and that applies to every single baby that dies for our convenience. There are few things that are more evil than hurting an innocent baby in a place it should feel absolutely safe. There is no excuse and there never will be for hurting a baby. No Christian should even remotely consider abortion an option, it is obviously wrong in the bible.
Let's also not forget that Jesus was once a baby, and he was God the entire time, even in the womb. It is a crazy thought but in our society there is a solid chance we would have tried to kill Jesus before his body even fully developed. If Jesus was always Jesus, I think it is safe to say that a baby is always alive at the second of conception. As I said before, we have absolutely no right to kill a baby, especially when you consider that 99% of abortions are done for convenience.
Oh, and since I know people are going to bring this up, the death penalty and abortion are not the same thing. Justice is not murder, someone on death row earned that sentence. Abortion is the killing of a completely innocent person. It honestly amazes me that anyone even begins to treat them as equal but no, they aren't. One is a criminal that has chosen to do horrifying things to others, the other is a baby that has had no chance to make any choice and is right where they are supposed to be.
Also, don't believe the lie that it can somehow save the mom to have an abortion. 100% of the time it puts her at more risk health wise, it doesn't save anyone. It simply guarantees the death of the baby and hurts the mom physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Ectopic pregnancies, which do risk the mother's life and need to be handled, do not require an abortion. They are a rare and tragic circumstance that have a different surgery used to save the mother without an intention to end any life.
They always seem to be coming up with new excuses on why it is okay to murder a baby, but none of them actually have any merit. It is always something stupid like they have a defect, even though they are still developing and it probably won't even still be there when they are born. The stupidest one is they won't have a good life because they will be poor. I promise you, even if people are poor, they still want to be alive. It doesn't even matter if the pregnancy started through some sort of sexual assault, the baby is still innocent and doesn't deserve death. This doesn't help the mother. If we want real justice, we should go after that guy, not the innocent kid. I could go on but just don't fall for any of the lies, no one is being helped with abortion, it is just murder.
If you have been involved in any abortion, you can repent, trust in our Lord Jesus and be forgiven. Use your testimony and become active in stopping others from doing the same sin.
