In 1973 the United States Supreme Court ruled that a woman has a legal “right” to an abortion. In other words, the law protects a woman who wants to kill her child, as well as the doctor who actually does it. Just because it is legal, does not make it moral.
Life was created by God (Genesis 1:26-27). It is sacred to Him, and the unlawful termination of it brings consequences. Cain was condemned by God for killing his brother Abel (Genesis 4:9-12). God told Noah that one who killed another would forfeit his own life (Genesis 9:6). This included life in the womb. If a man caused a woman to lose her child, God said, “life for life” (Exodus 21:22-25). The New Testament teaches the sacredness of life as well as the Old. Simply put, murderers will go to hell (Revelation 21:8).
Abortionists (murderers) may have protection from the state, but they are not shielded from the prosecution of heaven. If they wish to avoid the consequences of their sin, they must repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38).
