Sadly, large segments of American culture and even some liberal churches openly proclaim "abortion is a right for women in western countries." But the Bible teaches the unborn are considered “babies” and are nothing less that human life.
According to God's word, Rebekah was pregnant with twins, Jacob and Esau. The Bible passage explains, “The children struggled together within her, (Rebekah) and she said, “if it is thus, why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the Lord. And the Lord said to her, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you shall be divided; the one shall be stronger than the other and the older shall serve the younger.” (Gen 25: 22-23)
This event took place many thousands of years ago and even back then, the pre-Bronze age, the fetus was considered a child.
In the New Testament, much earlier in time, the book of Luke explains fetal life is a living being, full of life. The bible explains, “And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.” (Luke 1:41-44)
But the most profound statement about abortion in the Bible is found in one of the oldest teachings within the Word of God. The Old Testament explains, “When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman so that her unborn child comes out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impost on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. (Exod 21:22-25)
Clearly, God’s law placed a very high value on the lives of the unborn so that to take a life or hurt a child would be very costly indeed.
Therefore, as a body of Christians who look to the bible in guidance in all things, we should combat against abortion rights, abortion providers and political leaders who support Planned Parenthood (and other abortion providers) legally and financially.
Our official stance:
1) Governments should enact laws to eliminate abortion except when the mother’s life is in danger.
2) No government policies should promote or fund abortions for any reason.
3) The government should not force or compel people to participate in abortion services or funding.
4) Partial birth abortions should be banned in every country.
