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).

Abortionists view the carnage of abortion on a daily basis. Many of them feel ambivalent.
“There are many aspects of medicine that may not be particularly fun or enjoyable or pleasant, but I have an ethical obligation to do what’s best for my patients and not take my own personal convenience into consideration.” - Dr. David Grimes, Abortionist
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.
We have a friend who is considering being a surrogate mother and we have some concerns. Do you have any thoughts on this?
Is there a place where one crosses the line related to life issues? Life belongs to God, not to us.

There are two victims in an abortion—one dead, one damaged. If you have been damaged by an abortion, this appendix is written for you. And if you are a man who has been involved in an abortion decision—whether it concerned your girlfriend, wife, daughter, sister, friend, counselee, or parishioner—it is also for you.
Naomi Wolf looks to her conscience in responding to the attempts of society to rationalize and justify her abortion:
We don’t have to lie to ourselves about what we are doing at such a moment. Let us at least look with clarity ...

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."

On page 63 of the 5th edition of Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?, you mention a physician as stating that breastfeeding can cause abortions similar to hormonal contraception. You then quote a Dr. Hayes as stating that ovulation does not take place during breastfeeding, unlike the Pill, which can allow ovulation. I've come across some research done about 15 years ago that does document a fair number of ovulations during breastfeeding (see bottom of page). This research seems to indicate that in the few cycles immediately postpartum for a non-lactating mother and a few cycles when menstruation begins for a lactating mother, there is a possibility of an ovum being fertilized but not implanting due to inadequate corpus luteum. This is not direct evidence that breastfeeding prevents implantation of a zygote, but it is evidence that it could happen, probably with greater frequency than that with hormonal contraception.
