What is the proper view on abortion?
According to the Bible, abortion is murdering a living person. Psalm 139:13-16 says, “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 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.” You will notice here that God has every member or part of the baby all written down, before the baby is even completely formed. In other words, God has a plan for THAT LIFE.
I have a paper here before me that says the heartbeat of a baby starts between 18 and 25 days after conception. That means that the heart is formed and working that quickly! To have an abortion is to stop a beating heart. That is killing someone — that is murder. Numbers 35:16 says, “And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.” How many doctors have used an instrument of iron (surgical steel) to put an injection into the womb to kill a precious little baby? Many have done so. They are murderers. Many have used surgical instruments to pierce the skull of a precious little baby during a partial-birth abortion.
We need to pray for our nation, because eventually, God’s judgment will fall upon us for such a grievous sin. Are you saved and serving the Lord? That is our only hope for God sparing this wicked land.
