Early Church Teachings on Abortion

Compiled by Randy Alcorn

“You shall not kill an unborn child or murder a newborn infant.” — Didache

“You shall love your neighbor more than your own life. You shall not slay the child by abortion.” — Barnabas [c. 70-138], Epistles

“For us [Christians], murder is once and for all forbidden; so even the child in womb, while yet the Mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful for us to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder...He is a man, who is to be a man; the fruit is always present in the seed.” — Tertullian, 197, Apologeticus

God Has Exclusive Prerogatives Over Human Life And Death

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13)

I Wish Someone Had Told Me…

I Wish Someone Had Told Me...

  • That the first time I had sex, I would get pregnant.
  • That the “man” with whom I shared that first “intimate moment” would choose not to father his own child.
  • That the “man” who seemed to “know what was best” would actually be encouraging me to make the most regretful decision of my life, as well as his.

If an unborn baby is better off in God’s presence, then why do Christians consider abortion a crime against the unborn?

* If...this life is a vapor,

* And...it’s infinitely better to be with God in heaven,

* And...babies (including the unborn) and children who die below that elusive age of accountability go to heaven (as I believe)

* Then...why do some Christians consider abortion such a crime against the unborn?

Life Issues: Distraction from the Great Commission or Part of It?

Over the years I’ve often been told that human life issues, such as abortion and euthanasia, are not what the church of Jesus Christ is to be about.

Mother Teresa’s Speech

If we remember that God loves us, and that we can love others as He loves us, then America can become a sign of peace for the world.

Our Bodies, Our Souls: Rethinking pro-choice rhetoric

I had an abortion when I was a single mother and my daughter was 2 years old. I would do it again. But you know the Greek myths when you kill a relative you are pursued by furies? For months, it was as if baby furies were pursuing me.

Partial-Birth Abortion: What Did the Supreme Court Endorse?

Abortionists, feminists, the president of the United States, many congressmen, and the Supreme Court have defended partial-birth abortion, one of the most chilling medical atrocities in human history.

Partial-Birth Abortions — What’s the Big Deal?

President Clinton vetoed a 1995 bill which would have banned partial-birth abortions. Congressional supporters of the right to life vowed to override the President’s veto. In September 1996, they finally failed to do so.

Partial-birth or D&X abortion is a particularly horrific form of late-term abortion, in which the child is delivered live until only the head remains in the birth canal.

The abortionist then uses a pair of scissors to rip a wound in the base of the living child’s skull. He inserts a tube into the wound and sucks the helpless child’s brain out with a vacuum pump. The now-dead infant’s skull collapses and the body is removed the rest of the way from the mother.
