What does the Bible say about abortion?
The Bible is far from silent on the topic of the sanctity of human life, especially preborn life in the womb. This resource provides just a few of the many Scripture verses that speak to the value of preborn life created in God’s image from the moment of fertilization.
1. God has created and formed us in the womb.
Isaiah 44:24 – Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the Lord, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone…
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Is it life or just tissue?
When Elizabeth, Mother of John the Baptist, heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb. The Baby Heard and responded in the womb. Can a piece of tissue do that? Luke 1:41 – When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
It’s my Body. I have the right to do with it what I want.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
Does God Forgive Those Who Have Had Abortions?
Ephesians 1:7 – In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.
1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Yes you can have forgiveness and peace in your life. Just ask and God will grant it!
In closing I ask for your prayers to change the laws on abortion. Let’s vote for Pro-Life Politicians! Remember a baby is KILLED every 30 seconds.
