Exodus 21:22-25, Leviticus 24:17-21. An infant under the age of one month is considered to be worth less than an adult Leviticus 27:1-8, Numbers
3:15,28,34,39,40,43. Also, God once punished David by killing his newborn son (II Samuel 12:14-19); so apparently the right-to-life of the infant is
Sanctity of life, born or unborn, is denied in many places. Two examples: “Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and
spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling....” I Samuel 15:3, “they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed
in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.” Hosea 13:16
A lot of the discussion on abortion has to do with “illegitimate” pregnancies. An adulterous woman is to be killed Lev.20:10; with no mention of
an exception if she is pregnant. And “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even unto the tenth generation..” Deut. 23:2.
So according to the Bible neither the fetus nor the born child is worthy of much consideration.
Some quotes that anti-abortion people use out of context: “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee..” Jeremiah 1:5 This is claimed to show
that the “soul” starts at conception. But reading the entire chapter it's clear that the god is talking specifically to Jeremiah, not to the
entire human race, as he is telling him that he was born to be a prophet.
“...he hath blessed thy children within thee.” Psalms 147:13. Again, this is supposed to mean that human life begins before birth; that a fetus is
the same as a child. But read the rest of the psalm, and see that thee refers to the city of Jerusalem, not pregnant women!
Sorry, I can quote scripture to, a church going man for more then 2 decades! Mwahahahahaha!!!!!
