Bible verses and abortion pages on the right.)
The Bible doesn't call abortion, "abortion"
but the Bible does address it. Consider these verses to start:
"Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
before you were born I
sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations."
This passage declares that God Himself said that He
"knew" the baby "in the womb...
before" the baby was "born".
"What then shall I do when God
rises up? When He punishes, how shall I answer Him? Did not
He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One
fashion us in the womb?" (Job 31:14-15)
This passage affirms that "God... made" the baby
"in the womb".
You formed my inward parts; You covered me in
my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; marvelous are
Your works, and that my soul knows very well." (Psalm 139:13-14)
The "You" in this passage of course refers to God,
who "formed" the baby's "inward parts".
Luke 1:15 states that
John the Baptist will be "filled with the Holy Spirit, even
from his mother's womb", which means that the baby in the womb
has a soul for the Holy Spirit to fill.
Abortion activists attempt heroic acrobatics in logic to try to
dismiss these Bible verses, which indicate that
abortion kills babies whom God
"formed", "sanctified" and
"made" in the womb and in whom the
Holy Spirit may already reside, and is therefore
a murderous rebellion against God.
The "choice" pregnant women have is between
keeping or giving up their babies for adoption, not
murdering the "wonderfully made marvelous ... works" of
God. It is unconscionable that 1.3 million
unborn and even
born babies are
murdered annually in America (see early abortions
and born-alive abortions).
To put this atrocity into perspective, 1.3 million is even more than the
number of Jews the Nazis gassed annually during the
