In the Bible, Exodus 20:13, God gave mankind the Commandment, 'YOU SHALL NOT KILL'. This means that we are not kill the unborn child, the baby that is already born, the young child, the teenager, the middle- aged and the elderly. We are not to kill anyone. In the Bible, life is considered to be sacred from the moment of conception up through a person's physical death and beyond into eternal life in Heaven. The Greek word for baby as recorded in the Bible is brephos. In Luke 1:44, the word brephos is used to denote the unborn baby, "As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy." In Luke 2:12, 16, this same Greek word is used to denote the baby Jesus after His birth. In Luke 18:15 the Greek word brephos is used to denote an infant or small child. In 2 Timothy 3:15 the Greek word brephos denotes a child. In all these passages we see that the Bible makes no distinction between born and unborn children. The unborn child is looked at as being just as human and special as the child that is already born.

Scripture tells us that God creates the baby, forms the baby in the mother's womb and tenderly watches over the baby while the baby is maturing. In Psalm 139:13-16, the Bible says, "You created every part of me; you put me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because you are to be feared; all you do is strange and wonderful. I know it with all my heart. When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother's womb, when I was growing there in secret, you knew that I was there-you saw me before I was born. The days allotted to me had all been recorded in your book before any of them ever began".

In Genesis 9:1-6, the Bible says, "Be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth...I will demand an account of every man's life from his fellow man...for in the image of God man was made." God is going to hold all of us responsible for how we treat the unborn child. Clearly from the above verses and many others GOD VIEWS ABORTION AS BEING AN ACT OF MURDER---A DIRECT VIOLATION OF HIS COMMANDMENT.


The following excerpt was taken from The Catholic Catechism by John A. Hardon, S.J., Copyright (c) 1975 , used by permission of Doubleday, a division of Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc.:

"The Moral Issue.

On the level of morality, Roman Catholicism has always held that the direct attack on an unborn fetus, at any time after conception, is a grave sin. The history of this teaching has been consistent and continuous, beginning with the earliest times and up to the present.

The Church's teaching on abortion is just that; it is doctrine the Church proclaims on the prior assumption that the magisterium is empowered by Christ to proscribe and prescribe in any area of human conduct that touches on the commandments of God, whether derived from nature or from supernatural revelation. Arguments may be given and reasons offered to support the Church's teaching; but the ultimate "reason" why Catholics obey this teaching is the authority given the Church to command obedience in Christ's name. If this seems like "arguments made by an external judge," the Catholic faithful will answer, "We must put aside all judgment of our own, and keep the mind ever ready and prompt to obey in all things the true spouse of Christ our Lord, our holy Mother, the hierarchical Church."
