Re: The Bible regarding life at conception
In general, abortion is wrong. We know this as a gut feeling.
The Bible is not clear as to when a human life begins. We can argue about that.
The Bible does not say that abortion is a sin. Though we know it's wrong.
So, when should the Govt. have the power to step in and make it illegal?
As I understand it, the Supreme Ct. looked at the three trimesters and said that a woman has her choice in the first trimester. The Govt. can say "no" to abortions in the third. I'm not sure about the 2nd trimester. In any case, it seems that giving people the freedom of choice in the first and maybe the second trimester is a reasonable compromise given that the Bible does not say that life begins at conception.
