Q. 1. Where in the Holy Bible does it say that abortion is condemned?

A. 1. First of all, the Holy Bible does not specifically have the word abortion in its text. This does not mean that it does not condemn abortion.

The Bible's condemnation of abortion in two phases. In phase one, it refers to God knowing each and everyone at conception. In phase two, it refers to murder being condemned by God.

The following biblical quotes indicate that life begins in the womb at the moment when God forms humans.


"When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that there is a miscarrige... ...the one responsible shall be find what the woman's husband demands, paying as much as the judges determines." [Exodus 21:22]

"Did not he who made me in the womb make them? And did not one fashion us in the womb?" [Job 31:15]

"Your hands fashioned and made me..." [Job 10:8]

"Yet it was you who took me from the womb; you kept me safe on my mother's breast." [Psalms 22:9]

"For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; and I know very well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was bein made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth." [Psalms 139:13-15]

"Thus says the Lord who made you, who formed you in the womb and will help you..." [Isaiah 44:2]

"Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb..." [Isaiah 44:24]

"When Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and exclaimed with a loud cry, 'Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.'" [Luke 1:41]

"And the angel of the Lord said to her, 'Now you have conceived and shall bear a son; you shall call him Ishmael, for the Lord has given heed to your affliction.'" [Genesis 16:11]

"Isaac prayed to the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his prayer, and his wife Rebekah conceived. The children (twins) struggled together within her..." [Genesis 25:21-22]


When the Holy Bible refers to "you have conceived and shall bear a son," it means that the mother already has a child within her womb. The Bible does not say, "you might conceive a son."

Since the child already exist within the womb, to abort such a child is to commit murder.

Finally, the Bible teaches that "Thou shall not kill." See Exodus 20:13, Deuteronomy 5:17, Matthew 5:21 and Romans 13:9.
