    Q&A – What’s Your Opinion About Abortion?

    Question:

    What should I know about abortion?

    Answer:

    Abortion is a difficult topic that’s sensitive, emotionally charged and with a lot of “what if’s” attached. Right up front I will say this: I am against abortion, at any time and for any reason. I will explain why as we move on. First, the Bible does not specifically use the terms abortion, pro-life, pro-choice, etc.

    All of those words are recent terms (recent as in the last 100 years). The Bible does, however, say things about God’s relationship with us from conception, two in particular stand out:

    Jeremiah 1:4-5 The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

    Luke 1:41-42; 44 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit… As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.

    God planned Jeremiah’s life before he was even a thought to his parents. God had a plan for him before he was conceived. God has plans for all of us, He has seen the days of our lives before we ever take our first breath (Psalm 139:13-16).

    In the verse from Luke, Elizabeth’s baby (John the Baptist) reacts to Mary’s voice before he’s born. We don’t know exactly how long Elizabeth had been pregnant at this time, but she was probably about six months pregnant. The important thing here is that an unborn child reacted to something important happening outside of his mother’s womb.

    Scientifically speaking, “all genetic information (gender, eye & hair color, facial features and the influencing of intelligence and personality) is transferred to the baby immediately once the egg is fertilized” at conception (James Agresti). The baby might be microscopic but it already has the beginnings of intelligence and personality traits.

    Let’s answer some “what if” questions, shall we?

    What if I got pregnant on accident? Did you accidentally have sex? I don’t mean that to sound harsh, but there are consequences for the decisions we make and the actions we take. Pregnancy can be a result of sex. Birth control and condoms are not 100% protection. If you have sex, pregnancy may be a result and a baby should not pay the price for a mistake that was not their fault.

    What if I don’t want the baby? – One word: Adoption. There are literally thousands of families who want a baby to love and care for. If you don’t want your baby, I promise you there is someone who does.

    What if I was abused or assaulted?Please report it and get help. You do not deserve what happened to you and it’s not your fault. It’s also not the fault of the baby now inside you. Please tell someone what happened to you.

    I said I would explain my point of view so here it is: My husband David and I have been married for eight years and we have tried to get pregnant with no success. In our hearts, we would desperately love to have a child, but it does not seem to be the Lord’s time for us yet. Even seeing my friends become pregnant is hard for me. I rejoice with them, but my heart is also sad because I wonder when it will be time for us. I am against abortion because it’s against the Lord’s plan but also because there are so many couples who would love a baby – conceived or adopted.

    Please read Hannah’s story in 1 Samuel Chapter 1.

    Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. — Psalm 139:16

    1. This is a touchy subject for me… It depends on the mother’s health. Unfortunately, sometimes the mother is not well enough to carry a baby, even though she wants it. Also, it takes two to make a baby, and its not fair that one should go through all the pain of having a child and giving it away…

        • My aunt actually got pregnant at 14 several years ago. Her doctor told her that her body wasnt able to carry a baby and if she did she could develop some serious health issues because she already had lupus or something.. im not sure of the details, she doesnt like to talk about it too much. But yes, you’re correct too.

      • I just wanna say that abortions are awful, and they would NEVER be a first choice for me… But like I said about my aunt… it just breaks my heart… and I know that God sent the soul of her baby to another mother, where he/she is going to be great 🙂

        • I know that sometimes it is hard on the mother’s body, but,1 John 3:16 says “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” Many loving mothers who understand that there is new life within them will choose their child’s life over their own.

          I’m sorry to hear about your aunt, continually pray for her.

      • Abortion is a huge form of Sexism. Often it’s the boyfriend who tells the girl to get rid of the baby. It’s horrible when the man isn’t honorable and leaves all the responsibility to the woman. He should take an active role in his child’s future, but time after time they look for the quick fix.

      • actually, if medically the doctors say that it will be impossible how do you not know a miracle will happen and both will be saved? God does many amazing things and helps out everyone. Also, everyone has a purpose in life and some people may have been ment to bring wonderful people into this world. Jesus’s purpose in life was to suffer for others, and we are told to be Jesus all the time. Abortion is unnessary for all reasons!

    2. I think one of the pro-choice arguments I’ve heard the most is “what about in cases of rape/incest?”. In the very small number of people who are victims of this, statistics show that most actually don’t want an abortion – about 75%. Also, while it may not be your fault that you’re pregnant, it’s also not the baby’s fault that s/he has to die. So sad…

      • You are right. There are many studies that show that having an abortion can make the girl feel even guiltier. I really wish people would stop trying to justify this when they are only promoting pain and suffering. Also, few rape cases actually get impregnated.

    3. Reminds me of my youth group leader. Her and her husband have been married for almost two years and the amount of times that us girls during group have seen her break down because of the amount the lesson is touching her alone, makes me want to break down as well. I pray that you will one day have your baby Nicole, so that I won’t have to think of you breaking down like that too. A because the world deserves a baby who could be just as beautiful as you. <3 🙂

    4. I am completely against abortion. I feel that abortion is wrong and I know it is wrong. Women shouldn’t have abortions, but give the child up for adoption. There are a lot of couples that would be glad to have those children. Even though you may think that they werent anything because they were still a human even though they werent born yet. They are each still precious in God’s eyes and He loves them very much even if you don’t. If you didn’t want a child then you should have kept your pants zipped up. There is no sense on why you should even consider killing those children whether they were still in the womb or not…

    5. I happen to know a woman who’s mother was about maybe 16 years old or something and she decided that she didn’t want her so she decided to have a saline abortion. The baby should have died, but God had other plans. When they thought the baby was to come out of the womb dead, they heard crying to come and find out the baby didn’t die, but lived! She has cerebral palsy, but says “it’s not a disability but an ability.” Her name is Gianna Jessen. I know of another guy who’s mother was also a young mother, but in order to provide for her family she had to become a prostitute. She ended up needing $20 I believe and a guy said he would give her the money, if she would have sex with him. Well that boy was the result of the last time she did that. Instead of the mother going through an abortion though, she dediced to take and give him up for adoption. I thank God that she gave him up for adoption because now he is a motivational speaker/preacher I guess you could call him. He speaks at schools and at a christian youth conference every year that is held in Niagara Falls,New York. His name is Reggie Dabbs. He really is a big inspiration. These are just two stories of people who had been a result of a “mistake”. One young mother chose abortion, but God had other plans and one knew that abortion was not right and gave him up for adoption. Each are now both a wonderful inspiration and I thank God that He had different plans for them.

    6. I’m against abortion also and it’s hard to know that while there are girls in my high school who think that getting pregnant is the end of the world a teacher and family friend of my mom and I has waited years with his wife to have a child. For some reason they cannot have children and so they have decided to adopt. After years of going through the process just to be approved by the adoption agency they had finally found someone who could let them have the joy of a baby. They bought everything that baby girl could every need and want and more. They even had a name picked out. But then the mother backed out just after delivery. That was two years ago.
      Now they have a baby boy that they adopted just a few day ago. They were actually the mother’s second choice and the first couple actually adopted him. Then a few days later they dropped him off at a hospital, making him a ward of the state, because “he cried too much”. But their mistake is Robert’s blessing. He and his wife now have Elijah.

    7. I have a friend whos tried to get pregnant with her husband for 5 years, she finally got pregnant, but after 2 1/2 months, their was no heartbeat. Shes destroyed. All I could think of when I read this article was her question, How could people who don’t want a baby, get one and have an abortion, when all I want is 1?

      • Suszy – I understand the question that your friend holds in her heart. It is so difficult to watch people become “accidentally” pregnant and decide it’s inconvenient for them when all we want is the chance to have a child. Just one child to love and play with… Your friend needs all the love and support that you can give her as well as your prayers on behalf of she and her husband. Just be there for them (as I’m sure you are already).

    8. Nothing makes me more angry than this subject. Abortion IS Murder! I hope I don’t offend anyone, but anyone who aborts a child (even the doctor who did it) should be arrested! There are people out there who call the police when they see a mother spank her child, what about when a Mother KILLS her child!? This needs to be stopped!

      • exactly, abortion is murder!! that’s one reason y when a pregnant woman is killed the killer is charged with DOUBLE HOMICIDE!! that means that the baby is a person too, and not just another part of the woman’s body that she can decide to keep or destroy. i totally agree with u!

      • EXACTLY! I especially agree with you on the spanking thing! So a lady can kill her child with the support of others and a doctor, but if a random group of people hurt the pregnant woman they would all be jailed with huge bonds for murder!!!! Doctors job is to help people, not be an accomplice to murder! I don’t understand how anyone could see this as ok… it just breaks my heart!

    9. The women in cases of rape and incest should be supported by society. In a sense, society is responsible for what happened to her; society was unable to protect her from what happened, and therefore it is society’s responsibility to help her raise that child rather than kill it. We should be contributing to life, not death.

    10. I’m sorry, unless it’s rape or incest (in which case, carry the fetus to term and give it up for adoption, IF the mother can carry the child to term) you know what can happen, and if you’re not ready for a baby, don’t have sex. It’s that simple! 🙁

    11. I am 100% against abortion, but I’ve heard others say they don’t want to give up their child for adoption, because it’s worse for a child to go through foster care than to die before being born. What’s your response to that?

      • ME – The foster care and social services systems are flawed just like any human-run system. That being said, my husband worked in the social service/foster care system for almost ten years and compared to the things that children go through in families that don’t want them, foster care is a picnic. Foster care and social services aren’t perfect systems. There are people who become foster parents just for the money or worse but they are the exception not the rule. Most people get involved with foster care or social services because they genuinely care about kids and want to help, but dedication and caring aren’t newsworthy. Abuse and neglect, etc. are newsworthy so we really only hear about foster care when something bad happens.

    12. I hate abortion. It’s wrong. Period. If people want to have sex, they need to deal with what can come along with it. And in the case of rape, don’t punish the baby for what his horrible father did. Two wrongs don’t make a right. For people who still think abortion is ok, please use this link:

      http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1009/1009_01.asp

      Also, there is this awesome event that happens every year. I found out about it last year and participated in it. It’s called: Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity.
      It’s a day where people silence their voices the whole day for all the babies that have had their own voices silenced before they even had one due to abortion. This day is truly wonderful and has saved many babies from being aborted. It’s very well known. It doesn’t matter where you are, you can participate in it. It’s coming up in october. If anyone would like to learn more about this day and/or register to be a part of it, please go to:

      http://www.silentday.org/

    13. This is one of the topics on my prayers. I’m so blessed for the life Jesus gave me. I’m praying that there will be organizations dedicated to helping these pregnant women who are thinking of having an abortion and their babies. Some women don’t want to go to church because they’re worried of people judging them. It shouldn’t be that way. We should help them.

      I know why some women would think of having an abortion. Especially if she’s in high school, there will be lots of people judging her. It’s like that in my school. Please pray for these women, their health, and the lives of their babies.

    14. abortion is wrong in my opinion.Is like killing someone who is fully grown.I mean killing someone who is in the womb is no different then someone out of the womb because as soon as the fetus is there it is human and its NOT ok to kill it.But if it is for the mothers health then i would understand.If its just to do it then just don’t.Let the child be born then put it up for adoption DO NOT KILL IT!!!!! murder and abortion are the same thing and what does the Bible say about murder?….it says its wrong and it is sin.
      1:God calls us to protect the defenseless, including children.
      2:God says murder is sin. (Abortion kills the fetus.)
      3:God treats a fetus (baby) in the womb as a living person.
      4:God creates life.
      so lets not kill the poor child lets save them.They are the “new” generation and we need a new generation to make our world better and to produce the next generation. 🙂

    15. While I do love your stance that the choice should be left up to the mother, the problem with adoption is that unless you have a family already chosen, its hard to know if the child will be adopted by a loving family or simply grow up in foster care.

      • It is hard to know if the baby will have a good home or live in foster care, but it still deserves the chance to live. even children who grow up in foster care can have a good life if they work hard for themselves.

    16. I’m interested in what everyone’s opinion on the death penalty and/or shooting people in war- is. I mean I am a conscientious objector in war and otherwise. If some one was literally trying to kill me or my loved ones, I would obviously do all I can to protect from an attacker. But I always find it interesting that most people who are pro-life (which I am) are not against other forms of killing. Thoughts?

      • I completely am against the death penalty!! Who are we lowly humans to think that we have the power to determine who has the right to live?!? We are ALL sinners! Performing the death penalty makes us just as bad as the person receiving it. Didn’t our mothers all tell us “two wrongs don’t make a right”? Who are we to judge, and play God? Also, the person who commited a crime should have to live with the guilt of it for the rest of their life. The death penalty gives them a free ride out of guilt.

      • usually i agree that the death penalty shouldnt be used. but im a little conflicted about whether it was ok to shoot down osama bin laden because of the terrible thing he did. i will have to ask my preacher what he thinks.

    17. I do not ever believe it is ok. I hope you get help if you ever become pregnant… not just kill the baby. And by the way, some people say aborting “is like a miscarriage”. ABORTION IS NOT A MISCARRIAGE. Abortion is when you mean to take the baby from your body, killing it. A miscarriage is when you want this baby, but it just didn’t make it inside you.

    18. I hate abortion its murder i mean i know the baby isnt fully developed yet but its still living and breathing i mean how can people do that ugh it makes me angry i wish they didnt make it legal in 1973 they need to make abortion illegal again because all life is sacred even if lik eyou were raped and you get preganat (Sorry i spelt that rong) even if that happens you dont have to abord it put it up for adoubtion!!! That baby is so beautiful to God weather it s born or not so how do you think he feels when you abord a baby. I think abortion is selfish

    19. I believe that from the moment of conception there is a baby in the tummy what is growing inside that new mother is not a “it” or a “fetus” what is in the mothers stomach is a living human being. I believe under any circumstance abortion is wrong and should not happen. There is many people who want a baby and can not have one. Adoption is the way to go if you do not want the baby.

    20. Something I found out yesterday, cosmopolitan.com has some sort of thing, where you can get an abortion in the health section. Someone was discussing this on Live Action on Facebook, so I’m not exactly sure if it’s true or not, it wouldn’t surprise me if it was.

    21. I am against abortion. It’s down right wrong.
      I’m adopted. my birth parents were just dating when i was conceived. my birth mom didn’t find out she was pregnant with me until she was 5 months. she wanted an abortion, but my birth dad, her bf at the time-they dont speak now, convinced her not to. long story short when i was born she didn’t want me. my birth father did, but it wouldn’t be good for me.
      i’m now 15 and live in a loving and caring family with my mom and dad, and little brother. i am so blessed. my family now is amazing.
      so please don’t choose abortion, choose ADOPTION. my life is for the better for it!!! <3
      that's a short version of my story

    22. I’m not telling anyone that their opinion is wrong. At all.

      If you don’t believe in abortion because it’s murder, what do you think about the death sentence (to killers/rapists/molesters/etc)?
      I do not associate myself with pro life/choice, I am my own person who does not need a label. I believe abortion is ultimately the mother’s choice. I would suggest to people who are thinking about abortion to not get one; but it’s their choice ultimately and I would support them either way. I have read multiple articles on pro/anti abortion and I can honestly say that I can see flawed logic on both sides.

      • But the mother (and the father) should take responsibility for their acts. They did not accidentally have sex, right? Why must the child in the womb endure death for the parents’ pleasure? Shouldn’t the child have a right to live? Besides, it has been proven over and that abortion physically and emotionally hurts the woman. There are even cases where the mother was severely injured – or even died – due to abortion. In the end, abortion does more harm than good. Why do people love the baby but not the mother, or vice versa? Can’t we just love them both? Hope this clears things up a little. 🙂

    23. When I was 14, I was assaulted walking home from school (i go to school in another country and I had stayed late to do some stuff for a teacher and a friend so it was around 8 at night), was raped, and then left on the street which is where one of my friends, who walked home the same direction, actually found me. It was by the very grace of God that I was found and was, mostly, unharmed!
      About 2 months later I found out I was pregnant.. with TWINS!
      It was a terrifying experience, but I knew that for some crazy reason God had a purpose for it all. At first, I thought abortion was my only choice, but I soon realized that that’s NOT true! God DOES have a plan for unborn children and loves them just as much as He loves us!
      I gave birth to my twins, Elynour ‘Ely’ Lynea-Alexandra and Elijah ‘Eli’ Alexander-James, right before my 15th birthday. I did not give them up for adoption, instead I kept them. I have a wonderful family who helps me take care of them while I’m in school and other things.
      I know that if I had given my kids up for adoption that I would have regretted it for my entire life!
      My children are gifts from Heaven above and even though yes, it’s been incredibly difficult, it would be worse without them!

    24. This made me cry :'(

      I’m your baby. You don’t know about me yet; I’m only a few weeks old. You’re going to find out about me soon, though, I promise. Let me tell you some things about me. My name is John, and I’ve got…beautiful brown eyes and black hair. Well, I don’t have it yet, but I will when I’m born. I’m going to be your only child, and you’ll call me your one and only. I’m going to grow up without a daddy mostly, but we have each other. We’ll help each other, and love each other. I want to be a doctor when I grow up.

      You found out about me today, Mommy! You were so excited, you couldn’t wait to tell everyone. All you could do all day was smile, and life was perfect. You have a beautiful smile, Mommy. It will be the first face in my life, and it will be the best thing I see in my life. I know it already.

      Today was the day you told Daddy. You were so excited to tell him about me! He wasn’t happy, Mommy. He kind of got angry. I don’t think that you noticed, but he did. He started to talk about something called wedlock, and money, and bills, and stuff I don’t think I understand yet. You were still happy, though, so it was okay. Then he did something scary, Mommy. He hit you. I could feel you fall backward, and your hands flying up to protect me. I was okay… But I was very sad for you. You were crying then, Mommy. That’s a sound I don’t like. It doesn’t make me feel good. It made me cry, too. He said sorry after, and he hugged you again. You forgave him, Mommy, but I’m not sure if I do. It wasn’t right. You say he loves you but why would he hurt you? I don’t like it, Mommy.

      Finally, you can see me! Your stomach is a little bit bigger, and you’re so proud of me! You went out with your mommy to buy new clothes, and you were so so so happy. You sing to me, too. You have the most beautiful voice in the whole wide world. When you sing is when I’m happiest. And you talk to me, and I feel safe. So safe. You just wait and see, Mommy. When I am born I will be perfect just for you. I will make you proud, and I will love you with all of my heart.

      I can move my hands and feet now, Mommy. I do it because you put your hands on your belly to feel me, and I giggle. You giggle, too. I love you, Mommy.

      Daddy came to see you today, Mommy. I got really scared. He was acting funny and he wasn’t talking right. He said he didn’t want you. I don’t know why, but that’s what he said. And be hit you again. I got angry, Mommy. When I grow up I promise I won’t let you get hurt! I promise to protect you. Daddy is bad. I dong care if you think that he is a good person, I think he’s bad. But he hit you, and he said he didn’t want us. He doesn’t like me. Why doesn’t he like me, Mommy?

      You didn’t talk to me tonight, Mommy. Is everything okay?

      It’s been three days since you saw Daddy. You haven’t talked to me or touched me or anything since that. Don’t you still love me, Mommy? I still love you. I think you feel sad. The only time i feel you is when you sleep. You sleep funny, kind of curled up on your side. And you hug me with your arms, and I feel safe and warm again. Why don’t you do that when you’re awake anymore?

      I’m 21 weeks old today, Mommy. Aren’t you proud of me? We’re going somewhere today, and it’s somewhere new. I’m excited. It looks like a hospital, too. I want to be a doctor when I grow up, Mommy. Did I tell you that? I hope you’re as excited as I am. I can’t wait.

      …Mommy, I’m getting scared. Your heart is still beating, but I don’t know what you are thinking. The doctor is talking to you. I think something’s going to happen soon. I’m really really really scared, Mommy. Please tell me you love me. Then I will feel safe again. I love you!

      Mommy, what are they doing to me?! It hurts! Please make them stop! It feels bad! Please, Mommy, please please help me! Make them stop!

      Don’t worry Mommy, I’m safe. I’m in heaven with the angels now. They told me what you did, they said it’s called abortion.

      Why, Mommy? Why did you do it? Don’t you love me anymore? Why did you get rid of me? I’m really, really, really sorry if I did something wrong, Mommy. I love you, Mommy! I love you with all my heart. Why don’t you love me? What did I do to deserve what they did to me? I want to live, Mommy! Please! It really, really hurts to see you not care about me, and not talk to me. Didn’t I love you enough? Please say you’ll keep me, mommy! I want to live, smile and watch the clouds and see you face and grow up and be a doctor. I don’t want to be here, I want you to love me again! I’m really really sorry if I did something wrong. I love you!

      I love you, Mommy!

      Every abortion is just one more heart that was stopped. Two more eyes that will never see. Two more hands that will never touch. Two more legs that will never run. One more mouth that will never speak. </3

      • i have a friend who had an abortion, she named her son, ‘John’ i love her very much! her whole fam. is pro-choice…she only told me because God put my name in her mind. because of all the pro-life stuff i put on my wall on FB. she was having pregnancy complications as well, so i don’t know if she made it to have the abortion, or if she lost him before the abortion…this one really touched my heart. thanks!

    25. A couple of things that might constitute reason for abortion that you did not mention in the article are:

      ~What if the mother will possibly die if she has the baby? Is it better to have a baby and no mother, or a mother and no baby?

      ~You never know if the person who assaulted you had an STD. there is a chance that the baby will have that STD.

      ~What if you are extremely young when you were assaulted
      (12, 13, somewhere in there)and having a baby was WAAAYY to much physical and emotional stress?

      I am against abortion if you are just a dumb teenager who got pregnant “by accident”. But there are times that an abortion may be nessecary for the health and well being of the mother. I know how stressful pregnancy is for my 36 year old mom, I do not believe someone younger than 16 or 17 could handle the strains.

      • This subject is also a little touchy for me because I was almost aborted. The appointment was scheduled. There was nothing wrong with my mother. My grandma just didn’t want my mom to have a baby because her life was already stressful. My mother refused to abort me, though, and I am SO glad, and rembering the fact that I almost did not have life is simply beautiful, I am so grateful to my mom, she is an amazing woman, I love her SOOO much!

    26. I had asked this before on your facebook page. But please write an article about Gianna Jessen she is an abortion survivor and she knows God saved her (she has even met her mother who tried to abort her and she forgave her mother!). She is really a great role model and in a world of false role models we need more people to know about her!

    27. but the thing is, all of you speak about people with pro-choice views like they are ruthless baby-murderers who have no other goals in life but to kill fetuses. this just isn’t the case.. no one WANTS to have an abortion. people do it because they feel like they have no other options. it’s not like these women get pregnant for fun and then are like okay abortion time! women who have abortions can feel guilty and depressed both before and after. and you may say that it’s because they know abortion is wrong, but the mom would also feel guilty and depressed if she had the baby and couldn’t take care of it properly. abortion should be a woman’s choice, because it isn’t fair to bring an unwanted baby into a world where it won’t be cared for or loved.

      • Ah, but the baby doesn’t have to be unloved. There are thousands of couples who would LOVE to love that child. And yes, the mother deserves to be loved and shouldn’t be harassed, because she is still a child of God. But so was her child. And they don’t get pregnant for fun? What act causes pregnancy? Sex. The largest percentages of abortions are because it was accidental after having consensual sex. No, she wasn’t thinking about getting pregnant. (Whoopee! Time for an unwanted pregnancy) But that’s just it, she wasn’t thinking. Sex is a big deal, not just fun and if you’re going to have it then you should be mature enough to think about the consequences. Should your baby suffer for your mistake?

    28. abortion is awful, if you are responsible enough to have sex, you are responisible enough for the potential problems. the ONLY time i’d even even MAYBE say it was ok is if you were raped, but even then there’s adoption.

    29. while i am against abortion- i have a huge problem with the people outside of clinics harassing young girls about their abortions. yes its wrong and yes its unfair to that beautiful newly forming life but that girl is going through arough time and she needs help and guidance and Jesus NOT people bombarding her with signs containing an aborted baby. if you really dont want her to have an abortion offer to help her through it, take her out to coffee and talk to her, give her your number and tell her to give you a call so she can look for a home for that baby after its born. Jesus gave us two commandments: love the Lord your God and love your neighbor. so love that poor girl up! she needs it shes going through a tough time and she needs guidance!

    30. “God, why haven’t you sent someone to cure cancer yet?”
      “I did, but he was aborted.”
      I am completely against abortion a lady came to speak to us at church once she said she had some issues in her late teens and the first time she got pregnant, everyone told her to abort and she did. She got pregnant again, and everyone told her to abort again, saying it’s just a bunch of cells. But this time she didn’t, and her daughter is grown and married and completely beautiful now! Abortion is cruel!

    31. There’s nothing wrong with abortion. It may seem like a get out of jail free card and it might be teaching girls that they can go out and have sex without consequences but I still don’t see wrong in it. It’s a woman’s choice and what she chooses to do with her body and what goes on inside it is her choice. No one should be able to tell her otherwise.

      • its not her body the one in her womb is not hers. i hate it when i hear women and men who say they are christan saying that they are for abortion because it complely disgrees with the scripture, and if you are a christan its only right to live by the scripture!

    32. I’m against abortion. Even if I was raped, I would still have the baby-it isn’t their fault and it’s murder. People might say that’s relative depending on the situation or that its the choice of the parent. And also, when does life begin? “It’s okay to kill a child in the womb when ____” is a good question to ask.
      My answer? Never.
      (if you want more on ways to get people to think about this, like where the question came from, check out “180” on youtube by Ray Comfort.)

    33. I heard a story the other day about a 17 year old girl who became pregnant and was diagnosed with cancer. She could have gone through chemo but she decided not to in order to save her unborn child’s life. The baby was born healthy but the mother died a month later. Now, I have a question for all of you. If she had had an abortion and lived, would that be better? Or was it better that she should give her life to save another? Personally, I think that what she did was truly brave and took a lot of strength. Plus, even if she wasn’t a Christian, should could inspire many other girls who were healthier to save their unborn baby.

    34. I think that abortion is the same as murder. I know a girl that had gotten pregnant and wanted to keep the baby but her parents mad her get an abortion she was devastated and because of it she has a lot of health problems. Not many people know that abortion not only kills a helpless baby but can harm the mother as well.

    35. no matter what, I believe you should NOT NOT NOT get an abortion. There is no good reason to kill one of god’s beautiful creations. if you are pregnant and not married yet and considering an abortion. please do NOT get one. ask god to help you and your parents through it; he will, and he loves you sooooooooooo much no matter what!

    36. It is wrong. Selfish. And though the doctors tell you it’s “not a life yet” it is. God created it through the two that were in that intimate bond. Take the child’s hand, not his/her life.

    37. abortion absolutly disgusts me i will NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have one ever ever ver ever even if its ectopic some women have lived through them usualy the baby dies and its tragic but i would never ever have someone kill my child because i want to save them suffering news flash abortion is e child your not saving them your being selfish!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    38. Okay, the fact that abortion is even debated makes me sick. It is most definitely murder. People like to say that it’s not a person but rather part of the mother’s body. FALSE. Anyone who knows anything about biology, could squash that theory. You learn in High School biology that the moment that the sperm cell joins the egg, completely new D.N.A is formed. D.N.A that is different from both the mother’s and the father’s. This contains everything that the new person will be, hair color, eyes, personality, everything.Within seconds, the D.N.A is being replicated trillions of times. Therefore, how on earth is D.N.A that is NOT yours part of your body? And what exactly gives you the right, to decide that this person does not deserve to live? What makes them not worth having a life just like you? Are they only worth the few minutes of pleasure you received while creating them? The very fact that people think this way is disgusting. The very name, ABORTion, shows what it really is to some, a way to abort after making a mistake, a way for them not to accept the consequences of their actions. YOU were the one who lacked self control, YOU were the one who abused the gift that’s been given to you (a gift that thousands of couples would die to have), YOU now have an innocent person depending on you but YOU don’t want to deal with it, YOU cannot possibly be inconvenienced by this individual, so YOU decide to kill it. I sound so harsh but it’s ridiculous to defend this decision. People are so eager to defend their right. Well, you have a most precious right to conceive life, and you abused it. Pro-Choice? Ha! You already had a choice, you had the choice to show self-control and maturity, but you didn’t.If you aren’t at a maturity level, emotional level, and fiscal position to care for a child with a person that you are committed to in marriage then you have No right to have sex in the first place. Now, you can make the choice to give that child to someone who desperately wants it, who has the means and the love to give it the world. But you’d rather kill the poor child? I’m sorry, but I do not understand Pro-choice thinking at all.

    39. I DO NOT agree with abortion. But right now I have to write a paper about it. ugh.. I have to write about the opposing side… what they would be fighting for. I don’t feel right writing like I agree with it. cause I DON’T! 🙁
