Abortion is an extremely easy, yet hard, subject for me to discuss. If it isn't clear to you yet, God's heart breaks for you, as well as the millions of lives that have been murdered in the name of abortion. Abortion is the largest genocide the world has ever seen and God is very clear that He hates it. In fact, it is a demonicly-influenced blood sacrifice to demons and ultimately Satan (Lev 20:2; Amos 1:13; Jer 32:35; Jer 19:5), and anyone who would participate in this is demonically blinded from seeing the Truth. Hopefully you understand who you are and how much you mean to God. We are first of all spirits that God put in physical bodies so we could experience life in the physical. Do not take this for granted.
God speaks very clearly in the Bible on the value of unborn children. God's Word says that He personally made each one of us, and has a plan for each life:
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.
Even before I was born, God had chosen me to be His.
For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mothers womb… Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.
—Psalm 139:13, 16
Your hands shaped me and made me… Did You not clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life.
This is what the Lord says—He who made you, who formed you in the womb
Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One form us both within our mothers?
Because man is made in God's own image (Genesis 1:27), each life is of great value to God:
Children are a gift from God.
He even calls our children His own:
You took your sons and daughters whom you bore to Me and sacrificed them… You slaughtered My children.
The Bible says of our Creator,
In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being
God, the giver of life, commands us not to take the life of an innocent person:
Do not shed innocent blood.
Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person
You shall not murder.
Taking the life of the unborn is clearly murder—
He didn't kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave.
—and God vowed to punish those who…
ripped open the women with child
The unborn child was granted equal protection in the law; if he lost his life, the one who caused his death must lose his own life:
If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined …if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life
Life is a gift created by God, and is not to be taken away by abortion. God is "pro-choice," but He tells us clearly the only acceptable choice to make:
I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
There are probably other verses that apply and a lot more could be said about abortion. If you don't feel the same way about abortion, please contact me. I also recommend you read some Christian books on this subject for a more thorough evaluation.
