WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT ABORTION?
By Dr. Michael J. Bisconti
Question>† Does the Bible say that abortion is a sin?
Answer>† The Bible says that abortion is a sin when one has no moral reason for it.† In the absence of moral reason, one must follow moral principle or moral irresisaction (see the Pneumiatric Mental Health Dictionary).† The moral principle that might apply is that one must favor the possibility of life over the possibility of nonlife.† This is equivalent (not identical) to saying that one must favor life over death.† The moral irresisaction that might apply can only be known by someone who is personally involved in the situation.
Question>† Does the Bible provide anything else that would help us to determine whether abortion is a sin?
Answer>† See Abortion: The Smart Pro-Life Position and Isnít There Proof The Unborn Child Is Alive? and The Abortion Pages.† Also, see Dr. Biscontiís 2008, revised and expanded edition of his The Scientific American Abortion Encyclopedia (link not yet active).
