A Dialogue Between a Prolife Christian Ethicist and a Christian Who is Arguing that Abortion is Not Off Limits for Christians

Aren’t people with religious convictions who want to end abortion violating the separation of church and state?
If we used the same logic of separation of church and state, we would not have laws against killing adults either, since the Bible says "Thou shalt not murder."

Present it in a way that is not offensive or accusatory.
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.
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).

The following guidelines have been developed by the pro-life activists of Vital Signs Ministries who have been engaged in these ministries for over 25 years. We make them available to others in order to give them a clearer understanding of what is involved in this aspect of pro-life ministry and to help them best honor our heavenly Father as we strive to serve Him together in this important witness.
