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, “For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works … My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret” (Psalm 139:13-15).
Some people in our society don’t believe abortion is wrong because they see it as a solution to a problem. We must never reason out that we can solve one moral problem by allowing another, especially murder and that’s exactly what unrestrained abortion is. We have a duty to show others what God says about living with self-control and being responsible for our actions, as God defines them.
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 debate about whether abortion is right or wrong eventually leads to the definition of a holocaust. 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 wrong 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 will often think it’s unnecessarily restrictive and difficult, but it is actually there because He loves us and wants to protect us. The Bible says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).
Are you ready live God’s way and discover the peace that comes with it?
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"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."
