I think it would be wrong for a Christian to get an abortion because it is specifically condemned in early Christian writings like the Didache of the Apostles and the Epistle of Barnabas. It is mentioned indirectly by passages such as the one saying the babe John the Baptist leaped for joy in his mother's womb

Personally I don't think it should be illegal because the world only benefits when people have love for neither God or man don't reproduce. At some point the only people left will be pro family Christians (as well as Muslims) because we're the only peoples with a birth rate that is above the replacement rate

personally, i dont think any abortion outside of cases of rape, incest, or the mother's health should be legal. I would never endorse an abortion but in the cases i mentioned the mother really didnt have a choice.

I have been pro-life ever since I was in the 7th grade and learned what an abortion was...waaaaaay back a loooooong time ago! I don't think it's because I'm a Christian, but as a Christian, I could never support abortion. Life is just too precious!

Amen....!! IT IS SOOOO WRONG, murder and it is sin!!! I don't care how ones mind tries to justify it!!!
No one has the right to take the life of another..
I so believe the grace of God will give that woman everything needed to endure!
He will give her every avenue emotionally, physically, and spiritually if she will honor Him regardless of how the pregnancy came about.

It so bothers me that we have become a people in this country that are so desensitized in our conscience of thinking nothing about taking into our own hands ending the life of another. Because it causes ME _____________ fill in the blank!
There are to many excuses to justify and smooth the conscience of its guilty pleasures.
The world is so indoctrinating the woman the lie of the whole concept of when life begins, it's not a real baby, it's just a piece of flesh!

Oh, how I pray more would be educated in the truth of it all! Instead of closing our eyes, ears and most of all our hearts!
Their are also many options for a woman to take other then the action of abortion.

God spoke that baby into exsistence....He is the beginning and the end of life...not man! And there are no mistakes with Him!!!

I say no exceptions, a life is a life - it is not a human's right to take it away.

I don't agree with no exceptions. What if the mother's egg becomes fertilized in her tubes? Should she risk her life in that case as well as her baby's who has no chance anyway?

No, at least not in the sense that it's legal now.
