Every Second Counts is a new series providing Biblical answers to various questions on this issue with urgency and clarity. Why is it wrong? This is a foundational question that believers need to be able to answer without being ashamed of the source of their authority: the Word of God.
Why Is It Wrong?
- Abortion is wrong because it is murder, which is a violation of God’s law.
- God commands us in Exodus 20:13 not to murder.
- Mankind is made in God’s image, so to assault a baby in the womb is to shed innocent blood.
- Babies in the womb can feel pain and have a detectable heartbeat.
- Abortion is wrong because God says so.
