The Bible and Abortion

The late John Murray said, “Nothing shows the moral bankruptcy of a people or of a generation more than disregard for the sanctity of life.”[1] Abortion is an indicator of the moral bankruptcy of people in this generation and demonstrates the exceeding wickedness of sin. The Bible reveals that man is created in the image of God, and therefore to murder man is to assault the divine majesty.[2] The fact that man is created in the image of God is not true only of healthy adults, but is true of man in every phase of his life. Man is the image of God before the fall into sin (Gen 1:26-28), after the fall into sin (Jas 3:9), in the womb (see below), as a child (Lev 18:21; Eph 6:4), as one physically handicapped (Lev 19:14; Mk 10:46-52), as an elderly person (Lev 19:32; Prov 16:31; 1 Tim 5:1), and as having dominion over the animals (Gen 1:28; Ps 8:6-8).

The article is disturbing and rightly so.

Violence: Image and Action by Ian Clary

Yesterday morning my wife and I drove up the 401 listening to CBC’s “The Current” radio program. One of the segments involved a discussion of the recent arrests of five anti-abortion protestors at Carleton University in Ottawa. The arrests were made because the protestors displayed signs from the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) that depicted graphic images of abortion. The university would not let the protestors demonstrate in a more publicly trafficked area, instead they offered a place off the beaten path where few people would see them. The protestors felt that this was discriminatory, based on the content of their message, and decided not to follow the university’s request. Instead, they demonstrated in a main quad. The police were called in to remove the protestors, who were eventually arrested.
