Many religious people consider this to be a political issue while many politicians consider this to be a religious issue. I want to mention that according to what the Bible says, it seems that God also has something to say about this issue.
In Genesis we read that God created man in His image and breathed into him the breath of life. Man is not just another animal but a unique creation of God that not only was made in His image but received the breath of God to receive life.
Psalm 139 tells us that God saw us being formed in our mother’s womb and from the moment of conception God had a plan for our life. Ephesians mentions that we are God’s workmanship or masterpiece and that He has things planned for us to do.
Proverbs 6:17 tells us that God considers hands that shed innocent blood as being something He hates.
How much more innocent can you be than to be an innocent unborn baby? God does not hate the sinner but God does hate the sin. God wants us to “Choose Life”. To truly “Choose Life” is to choose to accept Jesus Christ as “the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
“Choose Life”? You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land
(Deuteronomy 30:20). If you have been wounded by abortion or any other sin God offers forgiveness and healing through Jesus Christ. God loves you and wants you to “Choose Life”.
