Christianity and abortion
The Christian belief in the sanctity of life is based on the teachings
of famous Christians and on what they read in the bible, the teachings
of Jesus. A quote from the bible which seems to support the view that
abortion is wrong is from Psalm 139:13, verses 15-16,
ou created every part of me;
You put me together in my mother womb?When my bones were being formed,
Carefully put me together in my mother womb.
When I was growing there in secret,
You knew that I was there ?You saw me before I was born.
The days allotted to me
Had all been recorded in your book,
Before any of them ever began.?
This seems to be saying that god has already begun to have an influence
on the life of a person before they are even born. The life of a person
is already unique and god has already given them their own identity
before they are born. If this is true, and the quote seems to be saying
that it is, then abortion would have to be seen as a crime on the same
level as murder. There are no good grounds for murder, one of the Ten
o not commit murder.?
So, if we were to consider only this quote then we would have to see
abortion as fundamentally wrong, any justification for abortion would
become a justification for murder, and we can see no justification for
murder, the ultimate sin. Another quote from the bible would seem to
strengthen this view, Jeremiah 1:4-5
The Lord said to me, chose you before I gave you life, and before
you were born I selected you to be a prophet to the nations.?
