Resources: abortion & the bible

Since abortion ends the life of a real, although unborn, person, and that person goes to heaven, in what form do they exist in heaven?

Your question about what the resurrection body of an infant might look like, is one that the Bible is not quite specific on. Much caution should be exercised as we try to discern an answer that is compatible with God’s revealed truth. I believe we can come to a position that is satisfying and does not contradict Scripture.

Scripture on the Shedding of Innocent Blood

Scriptures on the shedding of innocent blood.

“Do this so that innocent blood will not be shed in your land, which the LORD your God is giving you as your inheritance, and so that you will not be guilty of bloodshed.” (Deuteronomy 19:10)

Biblical Perspectives on Unborn Children

The Bible teaches human beings are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27; James 3:9). Not just Adam and Eve, but each individual since has been personally created by God (Malachi 2:10). Personhood is never measured by age, stage of development, or mental, physical, or social skills (Exodus 4:11).

Abortion in the Bible and Church History

There is a small but influential circle of prochoice advocates who claim to base their beliefs on the Bible. They maintain that “nowhere does the Bible prohibit abortion.” Yet the Bible clearly prohibits the killing of innocent people (Exodus 20:13). All that is necessary to prove a biblical prohibition of abortion is to demonstrate that the Bible considers the unborn to be human beings.

Do you think that Leviticus 17 is a biblical basis for belief that life begins at implantation?

These passages are not attempting to teach a theology of when human life begins and should not be used in support of abortion at any stage.

 

When Does Each Human Life Begin?: The Answer of Science

Science confirms exactly what Scripture demonstrates, that there is a point at which human life does not exist and then is suddenly created by God. In Science this is known as the point of conception.

When Does Each Human Life Begin?: The Answer of Scripture

baby“The babies [Jacob and Esau] jostled each other within her [Rebekah].” (Genesis 25:22)

“In the womb he [Jacob] grasped his brother’s heel; as a man he struggled with God.” (Hosea 12:3)

Your hands shaped me and made me. Will you now turn and destroy me? Remember that you molded me like clay. Will you now turn me to dust again? Did you not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese, clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit.” (Job 10:8-12)

When does life begin according to your study of scripture?

I’ll cut and paste two portions from the book below. If you only want section specifically on breathing, go to 6f below.
     As to Scripture and beginning of life, I follow with excerpt from Appendix B: Abortion in the Bible and Church History. The portion concerning Jesus and John the Baptist in Luke 1 is especially revealing I think.

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)

Abortion is About God

Abortion is about God. To leave God out of the picture of abortion is to trivialize it. All things are trivial without God.
