Abortion is a sin, right?

II Kings 15:16 “All the women therein that were with child he ripped up.” Describing the actions of Israel’s King Meabem (Meahem). Abortion is a sin, right?

  1. Thomas, read on: II Kings 15:17-18

    17In the thirty-ninth year of Azariah king of Judah, Menahem son of Gadi began his ten-year reign over Israel in Samaria.

    18He did evil in the sight of the Lord; he did not depart all his days from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he caused Israel to sin.

  2. DT: Sorry but I didn’t really know where to post this but it’s regarding abortion.
    First, a brief intro: My country’s predominantly Catholic and the Church has “meddled” into political affairs time and time again. Now, they are “voicing” out their disagreement with a proposed Reproductive Health Bill. This health bill will ensure proper education on family planning and reproductive health and will make artificial contraceptives available to everyone.

    My question: One of the reasons the Catholic Church is against the bill is because church leaders say that using artificial contraceptives is the same as having an abortion. WHY IS THIS SO?
    This argument is just so baffling to me. I hope one of you or your regular readers can shed light into this. Thanks!

  3. Psychogoddess, you will never get a sensible answer to your question. In spite of all the scriptures to be found in the Bible such as 11 Kings, 15:17,18 quoted by Janice—and there are dozens of them—they have no meaning for those who equate a fertilized human egg cell with a fully developed, able-to-breath-on-it’s own, baby. No, better a baby be born into poverty, filth, disease, life-long hardship, sexual abuse and even slow death, than be aborted while still nothing much more than a some animal-like beginning of a fetus in a woman’s uterus. If the church, and that isn’t just the Catholic church, was to give up its strangle-hold on its believeing “flock”, what would popes, priests, bishops, ministers, pastors and other church leaders who would lose their positions, their power over their “sheep”, do for a living?
