In 2 Samuel 11 and 12, David committed adultery with Bathsheeba, and she conceived. To cover up the sin, David had Bathsheeba's husband killed, then he married her. Today people would simply have the baby killed before it was born! Why is it wrong to cover up by killing the innocent husband, but acceptable to cover up by killing the innocent baby?
Frequently man lives as if God did not exist, and even puts himself in God's place... He claims for himself the Creator's right to interfere in the mystery of human life. Rejecting divine law and moral principles, he openly attacks the family.

Dont confuse what is legal with what is morally right
Furthermore, the loosest possible view is that the passage requires a fine for killing the unborn baby. This view would not disprove the humanity of the baby, since not all killing of humans was punishable by death (see vv. 20,21). Yet it still proves the act is a sin of some kind, else why should the man pay a fine? So even the loosest view of this passage proves that abortion is wrong. The correct meaning, however, is that killing the unborn was killing a human individual.

Many visitors to our web site ask whether abortion is right or wrong
I believe if someone has a legitimate argument that causing a childto be born into a certain kind of life would be far worse for the childthan not allowing it be born at all, then it would be wrong for societyor someone else to make that child be born while doing nothing to try tohelp that child have a worthwhile life. And this is particularly true ifit is well within society's or that person's power to help the child havea worthwhile life. I think it is wrong to force someone to have a childthat cannot be properly nurtured without help, help that one then intentionallywithholds. It seems more rational, more right, and more compassionate tohelp a person prevail over the legitimate objections he/she has againsthaving his/her innocent child be born, if one wants her/him to have a child,than to require her/him to have the child that you then essentially consignto a life of needless suffering.

But again, we need not prove the presence of the spirit to know that abortion is wrong. Matthew 10:28 and Luke 12:4,5 describe killing as deliberately ending the biologic life of a human "body." Killing the body is as far as man can go, because he cannot harm the spirit. Hence, to prove that abortion is murder, we need only to prove that the unborn baby has a human body which is biologically alive. We have already proved this. Therefore, abortion is murder.
