One of the key issues with abortion is the question of whether or not the fetus is a person.

Although the Bible does not directly address abortion, it tells us that conception is a gift of God. God creates a baby in the womb of the mother and has a plan for its days. David relates his sinful nature to the time of his conception, and tells us that God's care begins at that point in life.

There is a law regarding accidental lose of a child's life -- Ex. 21:22.

What the Bible says about a fetus.

  • It is called a child -- Matthew 1:20
  • It has a conscious awareness -- Lk. 1:36, 41, 44
  • The sinful nature is imparted at conception -- Ps. 51:5

How God relates to a fetus.

  • God cares for a conceived child -- Isa. 46:3
  • God forms a child -- Ps. 139:13-15; Isa. 44:2, 24
  • God plans a child's life -- Ps. 139:16; Isa. 49:1; Jer. 1:5; Gal. 1:15
