Part 1: Abortion: Biblical stance for pro-life
Several passages throughout the Bible support the pro-life position on abortion. First the focus will be on the relationship that God has with the unborn. In Jeremiah 1:4-5 God calls to Jeremiah proclaiming “before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” These two verses focus on the relationship God has with human beings by showing how He knows them before birth. In Psalms 139:13-16 David is praising God for forming his inward parts, and knitting him together in the womb. This also represents the relationship that God has with the unborn and how He establishes the days of his children when those days have yet to start. Psalms 22:9-10 states, “you are

Genesis 9:6 states that whoever sheds the blood of man, by man must his blood shed because human beings mirror the image of God. Also the sin of child sacrifice is one of the leading reasons that the Assyrians take over the Kingdom of Israel and send the Israelites into exile. 2 Kings 17:17-18 further explains how the Assyrians remove the Israelites from the land for sacrificing their sons and daughters as offerings.

Wade happened several years later in 1973 therefore “fetal viability” would be at conception. The constitution requires that as individuals law shall protect our rights, but in Roe v. Wade they said that the unborn is excluded from the protection of the law. The unborn are actually human beings though who have a complete set of chromosomes needed to be a human at conception and a even a heart beat therefore they constitutionally should be protected under the law as well. Roe v. Wade is also constitutionally mistaken. Justice William Rehnquist stated in the disagreeing opinion, “the Court necessarily has had to find within the scope of the Fourteenth Amendment a right that was apparently completely unknown to the drafters of the Amendment.” This statement proves that point that the court made a huge reach in trying to say the 14th amendment allows a right to privacy that also contains the right to
