Q. Why are we against abortion when the aborted baby goes directly to Heaven, never having been made to choose whether or not to believe in Jesus as it’s Savior? When my mother was pregnant with me she went to an abortionist to have the pregnancy terminated, only to change her mind at the last minute. Knowing the grievous sins I committed in my life, and the sins I caused others to commit, it would have been better if she had just gone ahead and terminated her pregnancy.
A. We are against abortion because it is a violation of God’s commandment against murder, the premeditated taking of another person’s life (Exodus 20:13). No matter what kind of mess you think you’ve made of your life, no one has the right to deprive you of it, not even you. In fact the perceived quality of a person’s life is irrelevant to the issue, since no one can predict what direction a life will take.
