Abortion – A Religious and Moral Look at the Issue
Recently laws were passed in New York and Virginia allowing abortion through the time of delivery, and in come cases, immediately after delivery. In response, the legislatures and Georgia and Alabama, this week, passed laws that prohibit abortions after six weeks, the time a heart-beat is typically detectable in a fetus or unborn child. What are the religious and moral arguments for and against abortion? What, if anything, does the Bible say about the issue? An important verse from the Didache, a book in the “Apostolic Fathers,” directly on point is discussed, as well as the teachings of the Restored Church of Jesus Christ on the subject.
