I can’t figure out what other Christians mean when they say they are against abortion on religious grounds. The Bible clearly does not afford a fetus the same legal status as human being (Exodus 21:22-23). God even gives Moses instructions on how to perform an abortion of sorts (Numbers 5:11-31). Finally, the Bible repeats the theme that God breathes life into us. Based on this, it seems that life is not Biblically considered to begin until birth. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not pro-abortion by any means. It still *seems* disgusting and wrong to me but I have nothing Biblical to base this gut feeling on. And by the way, thank God not all sins are illegal or I would probably be rotting in prison.
How many who love never come nearer than to behold each other as in a mirror; seem to know and yet never know the inward life; never enter the other soul; and part at last, with but the vaguest notion of the universe on the borders of which they have been hovering for years?
