Even if the Bible teaches that a preborn baby is alive, should we still try to impose our religious views on secular society?
Abortion is not a religious issue but a moral one. We can’t say, I’m personally opposed to murder or rape because the Bible forbids it, but I don’t want to impose my biblical values on others. That’s because murder and rape are moral issues, not personal religious ones. Some say that abortion is a decision made between a woman and her doctor, but don’t forget that a third person is involved—the unborn baby. Who will speak for the child? Who will protect the one who is unable to save herself?
We need to remember Proverbs 24:11–12: “Rescue those being led away to death. . . . If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this,’ does not he who weighs hearts consider it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?” We must never learn to tolerate abortion, and we must use all of our rights as citizens to work legally to protect the unborn.
