35 Years of Abortion

4dToday is the 35th anniversary of the Roe V. Wade decision to legalize abortion-on-demand (otherwise known as elective abortion). I recently taught an adult Sunday school class on the subject of abortion because I firmly believe that Christians are largely ignorant of the reasons why we believe that abortion is wrong. Sure, Scripture condemns murder. But how do we defend these beliefs with those that aren’t interested in hearing scriptural reasoning? The logic of the pro-life position is quite simple, it’s two premises and a conclusion. If the first 2 premises are true, then the conclusion is undeniable. Here’s the argument in a nutshell:

1) It is morally wrong to murder an innocent human being

2) Abortion kills an innocent human being

3) Therefore, abortion is morally wrong

  1. 1) It is morally wrong to murder an innocent person.
    2) A fetus isn’t necessarily a person.
    3) Therefore, abortion isn’t murder nor necessarily morally wrong.

  2. I have posted a reply in the latest blog entry. Thanks.
