Bible Passages Relating to Abortion
Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything. And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man.
When Job lost all of his property and the lives of his children, he conceded that the life that each of his children had was a gift of God and was God’s to give and take.”The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised” (Job 1:21b)
“There is no god besides me. I put to death and I bring to life…”
“You shall not murder”
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, “When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth and observe them on the delivery stool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live.
Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.
“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.”
(IF HATE IS MURDER, CAN ABORTION BE ANYTHING LESS?)
Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.
Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty. (May want to include the one innocent who was made sin – 2 Corinthians 5:21)
The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” (Whether Cain hid or buried his brother, Abel, God knew that human blood was shed, a life was taken. Murder, in whatever form it takes, cries out to God for justice.)
