Human beings are made in the image of God, set apart and unique from all other creatures. (Genesis 1:27, Genesis 9:6, 1 Corinthians 11:7, James 3:9, Psalm 8:3-8). The child in the womb is as real and valuable a person as those at any other stage of development. (Genesis 25:22, Psalm 139:13-16, Luke 1:15, Luke 1:41) Therefore, to unjustly take the life of an image-bearer of God is murder. God forbids murder in his law, stating that human beings are so valuable, that to take their life unjustly affords a death sentence at the hands of the civil magistrate (Genesis 9:6, Exodus 20:13).
2. Abortion is an Issue of National Sin
The Bible says that those who hate God love death (Proverbs 8:36), and that God hates the hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16-19). Abortion is the sacrifice of children in the womb as a result of the sinfulness of the human heart. (Lev 18:21; 20:2, 3, 4, 5; 1 Kgs 11:7; 2 Kgs 23:10; Jer 32:35). When evil is left unpunished amongst a people, the responsibility for the sin passes from the individual to the nation. The only remedy for this scourge is first repentance within the church (1 Peter 4:17-18) and within the country (2 Chronicles 7:14, 19-22, Ezekiel 14:6). God may be merciful and relent from sending calamity upon a people that sheds innocent blood.
3. Our Message is the Gospel
Abortion is not merely a political issue, it is a moral issue that is irrevocably tied to the violation of God’s Holy Law (Exodus 20:13). This law testifies to the conscience of the sinner that they have offended the God they already know exists (Romans 1:18-20). Therefore, the call is to repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins and peace with God. Women are not victims of circumstance, but violators of God’s law in need of his grace (Matthew 4:17, Luke 24:45-47, Acts 2:38, 17:30, 20:21, Romans 3:23-25, Romans 5:1).
