ABORTION


 

The following scriptures prove that a life starts at conception. Abortion is murder.

 

Jdg 13:5  For behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. And no razor shall come upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb; and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines."

 

Psa 22:10  I was cast upon You from birth. From My mother's womb You have been My God.

 

Isa 49:1  "Listen, O coastlands, to Me, And take heed, you peoples from afar! The LORD has called Me from the womb; From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name.

 

Isa 49:5  "And now the LORD says, Who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, To bring Jacob back to Him, So that Israel is gathered to Him (For I shall be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, And My God shall be My strength),

 

Jer 20:17  Because he did not kill me from the womb, That my mother might have been my grave, And her womb always enlarged with me.

 

Hos 12:3  He took his brother by the heel in the womb, And in his strength he struggled with God.

 

Luk 1:15  For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.

 

Job was a child from conception.

 

Job 3:3  "May the day perish on which I was born, And the night in which it was said, 'A male child is conceived.'

 

Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and only a fool would say that the Son of God was not alive in the womb of Mary.

 

Mat 1:20  But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

 

Elizabeth had a son from conception.

 

Luk 1:36  Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.

 

The baby leaped in the womb of Elizabeth.

 

Luk 1:41  And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

It is plain from the bible that a human life begins at conception, and abortion is murder.

 

There is just one thing to consider regarding abortion. Love and mercy override the law, and there may be a special circumstance when it is showing love to have a fetus aborted: possible death to the mother or possibly a fetus that is so deformed that the child would be born dead.

 

However in the majority of cases today there is abundant varieties of birth control available to anyone today. Of course the bible teaches and so do we, that there should not be sex before marriage. This solves all of these problems. However if people do not follow these simple directives from the bible, surely a mature person would use a contraceptive if they chose to live a promiscuous life. This option would be far better than getting pregnant and then aborting the baby, which is killing a child.

 

People need to understand that abortion is murder.
