Except of course when you bring God into it.

Abortion is not killing if there is no soul-life like God says.

Just gotta try to squeeze Christianity into the debate you know.

May God bless you

I am truly interested in an answer from someone who is against abortion in all circumstances. What follows is the dilema faced by pregnant women in WW2 concentration camps. They aborted their own babies, knowing what would happen to the baby if it were born - gassed, staved, subject to medical experiments or otherwise killed. Was this wrong?

Today, is it wrong for a North Korean woman in a slave labor camp to abort knowing the child will be murdered?

My view on abortion:

I don't support the choice of abortion when the woman made an irresponsible choice to have unprotected sex and get pregnant with a child that she was apparently not ready for and had no desire to have. I would support adoption in that case. "If you can't do the time, dont do the grind." Martin Lawrence.

But in cases of rape or incest the woman did not have the choice to get pregnant. In those cases ONLY i think the woman should have the right to make a responsible choice to have an abortion or not. I would still favor adoption in those cases but in cases of rape or incest i think the woman should make the choice because a choice was already made for her.
A Christian's answer should always be biblical and not a matter of personal opinion. nuff said

No Fundy . . . that would be a Biblean's answer. A Christian would ask very seriously in each specific situation and circumstance "What Would Jesus Do?"

I agree !

We Christians should ALWAYS answer with the full knowledge of God's Word.

We should ignore the man-made heresies and doctrines of devils and be prepared to defend God's Word, against the wiles of the adversary.

Living cells that are multiplying have life whether or not a soul is attached to them. To destroy that life is KILLING!

My guess is that you are attempting to display some kind of 'superior' knowledge of what God 'really' says and means, gleaned from your own or some mentor's interpretation of some verses of scripture. But no, it's not clear in the bible that God says it's ok to kill unborn children.

But it is clear that He forbids KILLING.


"Thou shalt not kill." Exodus 20: 13

If the child's death is certain, either at the hand of his/her mother or at the hand of government employees, whose hands is it preferable that the blood be upon from a Christian's point of view?

It would be wonderful if it was that simple. But 38,000 or so different Christian denominations attest that the interpretation of verses written in the books of the bible is personal opinion.

And I suppose in your mind YOU and those who accept the same package of bible interpretations that you do are the only Christians qualified and authorized to judge which interpretations and understandings of scripture are "heresies" and "doctrines of devils" and which ones constitute "the full knowledge of God's Word?"
