This mission of End Abortion Now is grounded in the truth of Scripture. We do not derive our beliefs, strategies, and methods from secular norms, humanistic philosophies, or worldly wisdom. While biology, science, and reason are valuable tools to employ in the service of truth, they are not infallible.

The Word of God is the sole, inerrant rule for all of life. As such, it is sufficient to furnish the Christian for every good work, including the work of ending abortion. Scripture alone defines the problem and the correct solution for vanquishing this great evil of our age. Below are the Biblical pillars underlying the beliefs and message of End Abortion Now.

1. Abortion is Murder

From the moment of fertilization, all human beings are made in the image of God, set apart and unique from all other creatures. (Genesis 1:27-28, Genesis 4:1, Ruth 4:13, Ecclesiastes 11:5, Psalm 139:13-16, 1 Corinthians 11:7, James 3:9, Psalm 8:3-8).

God’s holy law forbids the unjustified taking of human life (Exodus 20:13). The child in the womb possesses the same value as those already born. (Genesis 25:22, Exodus 21:22-25, Luke 1:15, Luke 1:41). Therefore, to unjustly take the life of an image bearer at any stage of their development is murder.

2. Abortion is an Issue of National Sin

Child sacrifice not only brings eternal condemnation on unrepentant individuals but also the temporal judgment of God in history on entire nations (Jeremiah 7:30-31, Amos 1:13-14). All nations are accountable for violating God’s moral statutes (Isaiah 24:5-6, Proverbs 14:34, Psalm 9:17, Psalm 33:12).

The shedding of innocent blood places a curse on the land and invites divine wrath upon its inhabitants (Lev 18:21,25; 20:2-5, Psalm 106:36-41, 1 Kings 11:7; 2 Kings 23:10; Jer 32:35). National sins like abortion must be driven out by national repentance (Ezra 9:3-7, 2 Chronicles 7:14), beginning with the Christian Church (1 Peter 4:17-18, Ezekiel 14:6).

3. Abortion is a Gospel Issue

Abortion is not merely a political issue; it is a moral issue that is tied to the violation of God’s Holy Law (Exodus 20:13). It is an issue of Great Commission obedience to all that Christ has commanded (Matthew 28:18-20).

Furthermore, abortion is an act of false worship arising from a sinful heart (Romans 1:25, Matthew 15:19). Both creation and conscience testify to sinners of their guilt (Romans 1:18-20, 2:14-15), but the Word of God and His Spirit are needed to change fallen hearts and renew futile minds (Romans 10:14-17).

Men and women who knowingly and intentionally murder their own children are in need of the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, the call for them is to repent of their sin and trust in Christ for forgiveness, eternal life, and reconciliation with God. (Matthew 4:17, Luke 24:45-47, Acts 2:38, 17:30, 20:21, Romans 3:23-25, Romans 5:1, 2 Corinthians 5:20).

4. The Church Must Care for Mothers and Fathers Considering Abortion

It is the responsibility of God’s people to see to the care of the fatherless, the voiceless, and “the least of these” (Proverbs 24:10-12, Proverbs 31:8-9, Matthew 25:34-40, Acts 4:34-35). God Himself is a father to the fatherless and the protector of the widow (Psalm 68:5).

Therefore, his people are called to exercise the same compassion, rendering mercy and charity toward those in need. This is religion in its purest form (Mark 12:31, James 1:27). Related to those seeking abortion, this means that the church should be ready to minister the Gospel and material resources to families as they are able in the context of the local body of believers (James 2:15-17, Deuteronomy 15:7-8, Proverbs 3:27-28). 

5. Abortion Must be Criminalized

Abortion is a sin as well as a crime. The proper use of the law includes restraining immoral, public lawlessness (1 Timothy 1:8-11). God demands justice for the fatherless (Deuteronomy 27:19, Psalm 82:2-3, Exodus 23:2).

The standard of justice for his image bearers is the same regardless of their size, level of development, environment, or degree of dependence (Exodus 21:22-25). He hates partiality (Leviticus 19:15), acquitting the guilty (Proverbs 17:15), and using unequal weights and measures in judgment (Proverbs 20:10).

It is the responsibility of the civil government to protect human life and see to it that justice is carried out in accordance with the prescribed statutes of God’s law (Romans 13:1-7). Earthly rulers will answer to King Jesus for how they govern (Psalm 2:10-12, Revelation 1:5).

For these reasons, we call for the complete judicial end of abortion, not gradual restrictions that deprive the fatherless of the justice that God says is their due.
