I'm a christian and I AGREE with you. I never thought I would think abortion was ok in ANY manner. I used to say, well it's awful that a woman would kill a baby that didn't ask to be.
But you know what? Are some of you seriously kidding me? Do you honestly think God is going to judge someone who had an ab. due to rape? NO! Give me a break. He knows someones heart.
Yes, I'm sure God rather have the person have their baby...but don't cluck unless you are in that womans shoes. I've met MANY rape victims and it infuriates me to think that peopel use religion to force her to stay pregnant.

SHE WAS JUST RAPED and NOW you're trying to make her feel bad for getting an abortion? Stop being hypocrites. A TRUE Christian, like myself, understands, that there are sometimes awful circumstances in life and that certain decisions MUST be made.

Do you think God sends people who fought in the war to hell? NO. Because it was under a certain circumstance.

Ectopic pregnancies are 1in50 with 90% resolving themselves. The rare instance that the egg lodges and does not drop requires surgery through the abdomen, and is not technically an Abortion. In many cases the egg can be transplanted into the uteris and the baby can be carried full term.

As pointed out, the small percentage of rape, incest and tubal (Ectopic) pregnancy in no way justifies the kill a baby on demand mentality that women have been brainwashed into accepting as okay, in order to extinguish the conscience screaming of their souls.....don't do it....

godspeed,

each day that passes after conception it begins to look less and less like a woman defending her ownership over her own body and more and more like a baby killing.

A Christian would not be a Christian if they approved of or supported abortion. As other posters have mentioned, the Psalms talk of God knowing us whilst we were in the womb. All life is precious in His eyes, no matter the circumstances of conception.

It is for human beings to rise above a solution of distruction when a baby is concieved following rape. The child is innocent of all charges. Adoption is the obvious answer, though I have heard and read of women who gave birth in such circumstances and grew to love and cherish their child.

We have the dubious honour of being the abortion capital of the western world. A quarter of a million tiny souls every year thrown in the sluice then on to the hospital crematorium. It is a legal and loathsome practice that I detest with all my heart.

He actually knew us even before the womb. Even before the foundations of the earth were laid.

In God’s eyes the life of any embryo—including one conceived out of wedlock—is precious.

"You shall not murder." --Exodus 20:13

"If anyone is injured, the offender must pay a life for a life" --Exodus 21:23

How many times would you like to hear the same answer over and over again? Are you a Christian? Just curious.

I strongly support the premise that anyone who does not support abortion should not have one.
