Why Abortion Is Wrong

Abortion has divided our society like few other topics in recent history. The Bible places the highest importance on human life. God treats it as sacred and invaluable—and that’s because He created us “in His own image.” This is why the Bible identifies an unborn baby as being fully human.

The Bible says, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb” (Psalm 139:13-15).

Some people don’t believe abortion is wrong because they see it as a solution to a problem. How can we solve one moral problem by allowing another, especially murder? That’s exactly what unrestrained abortion is.

God created all life and He sustains it. He has given each of us the breath of life and it’s our responsibility to protect what was given by the Father in heaven. This is why the question about whether abortion is right or wrong is so significant. No man or woman has the right to steal from God or destroy the creation of life that belongs solely to Him.

In God’s great love, He gives life that bears His image. Determining if abortion is good or bad goes well beyond the question of whether people have the right to terminate the life of a child. The real issue is whether people will insist on living according to worldly standards that oppose God’s law. True peace comes when people surrender to God and allow Him to guide their lives according to His loving righteousness.

People who oppose God’s law often think it’s unnecessarily restrictive and difficult, but it is actually there because He loves us and wants to protect us, just like these children. God wants us to love each other, too. The Bible says, “If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law. … Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law” (Romans 13:8,10).

Whether you are hurting because of a decision you made in the past or you’re struggling with a choice now, please know first and foremost that God loves you.

Are you ready to experience His love and see how deep it goes?

Step 1 – God’s Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life.

The Bible says:

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

"I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
John 10:10

What keeps us from having the life God planned for us?

Step 2 – The Problem: Our Separation from God

God created us in His image. He gave us a will and the freedom of choice; we choose to disobey Him and go our own way—which is called sin. This separates us from God.

The Bible says:

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Our choice to sin separates us from God. People have tried many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God.

The Bible says:

"There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death."
Proverbs 14:12

"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear."
Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God... except one.

Step 3 – God’s Bridge: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. When He did He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between us and God.

The Bible says:

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God."
1 Peter 3:18

God has provided the only way back to Him. You must make a choice.

Step 4 – Our Response: Receive Christ

We must trust and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The Bible says:

"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
John 1:12

"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
Romans 10:9

Which side are you on? The side with Christ or without Him?

Here is how you can accept Christ into your life:

We suggest a prayer like this one:

"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
