Abortion

Case against abortion - It is a genocide

Embryology textbooks do not hide the fact the life begins at conception (fertilisation). From the moment of conception we have the genome code of a unique human. A separate human has been made and starts to grow in their mother's womb. The psalmist reflects on this, 'For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.' (Psalms 139:13). God's very own unique person is known in the womb.

If life begins in the womb any dismembering of that person is murder. From week 1 of development the person should be protected in law. Smaller people are no less a person. Embryos and fetuses are just smaller than new borns. The only difference is size. Yes, a spider is smaller than a human. But human life is made in the image of God. God detests the shedding of innocent human blood.

It is true that the foetus is less developed than a new born. But new borns are less developed than adults. So, by this logic it is ok to kill someone if they are a new born. No, of course not. It is not ok to justify an abortion for the reason of size or development. 

Some say, 'without the mother, the baby will not survive'. This is true for the majority of the mothers pregnancy up to around 24 weeks. It is also true for the first 8-10 (or more) years of someone's life. A young child can not survive with out someone looking after them. They get food and shelter, they are dependent on their mother or someone else. It is not valid to suggest that the baby in the womb is not a person 'because they are dependent', by that logic toddlers are worthy of destruction.

Others say it is ok to destroy human life if the baby has a disability. It it very common in modern Britain to kill babies that have a detected disability in the womb. A person is no less a person because they have a disability.

All of these reasons are not justified reasons to kill someone, it is an excuse of idol worshiping pagans. The people of God need to rise up and make a stand against this evil.
