Does The Bible Say Abortion Is Wrong?


Can you give me the scripture pertaining to the wrong of abortion? Thanks


The arguments over abortion really stem from a disagreement over when life begins. The pro-abortion side insists that life begins at birth, making abortion a medical procedure similar to removing an unwanted growth of tissue.

Those opposed to abortion are convinced that from God’s point of view life begins at conception and therefore the commandment against murder (Exodus 20:13) applies to the pre-born.

Some scriptures that support life beginning at conception are Psalm 51:5-6, Psalm 139:13-16, and Jeremiah 1:5. Taking God at His word leads us to the inescapable conclusion that abortion is the unlawful taking of an innocent life.
