Abortion, the topic that nobody wants to talk about, but everybody has an opinion on. Abortion is a touchy subject for both Christians and non-Christians alike. There have been various debates between pro-lifers and pro-choicer’s over the past decade. Personally, as a believer, I believe that abortion is completely wrong.
When arguing about whether or not abortion is wrong, one of the first arguments made is the fact that the baby is unborn. Yes, the baby is unborn, but so what? Does that not make it a living, breathing human being? At what point do you consider it a “human”? “Do not murder” is one of the Ten Commandments. God commands us to not murder but little do you know that each time you abort a baby, you are committing a murder. Think of this, if abortion, the killing of an unborn baby is not murder, then why is it called a double homicide when a pregnant woman is murdered?
The Bible also makes it clear that our bodies are not our own. Our bodies belong to the Lord, and we are too be using them to glorify the Lord in all we do. 1 Corinthians 6:12-13 says, “You may say ‘I am allowed to do anything.’ But I reply, ‘Not everything is good for you.’ And even though ‘I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything…But our bodies were not made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies.” By having an abortion, we are not taking that into consideration. We need to be responsible in how we treat our bodies as well as others.
Many girls want to get abortions because they are accidently impregnated by their boyfriend. First off, sex before marriage is wrong. The Bible states this in 1 Corinthians 7:2 and says, “But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband”. This verse states that sexual relations are only to happen between husband and wife, making pre-marital sex a sin. Many non-Christians out there may not know this, but you are lucky because God has already forgiven you, past, present and future. Isaiah 1:18 says, “No matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you as white as sand”. No matter the sin, you need to repent your sins to the Lord and He will forgive you.
