Fond du Lac Chapter


The Holy Bible, God's revelation to man, is not silent on this issue.

God's infallible Word (2 TIm 3:16) reveals to us what is truth and what is falsehood.


Here is what God says about life:

Paul, inspired by God, wrote in Acts 17:25 b, "...He gives to all life, breath, and all things."

As God gives life we have not the authority to take it away. We do not have justice in mind here. As some do believe the Lord gives government the authority to carry out justice and put men/women found guilty to death. (Romans 13:4)


"Behold, children are a heritage (blessing) from the Lord." Psalm 127:3


Job speaking of his servants:

"Did not He (God) who made me in the womb make them. Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?" Job 31:15


"Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother's breast. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God "(Psalm 22:9-10).

'''For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be "(Psalm 139:13-16).

"This is what the LORD says—he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you..."(Isaiah 44:2).

"The word of the LORD came to me, saying, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:4-5).


Gods creates life in the womb. The child does not become more vauleable to God or man when he/she is fully formed or out of the womb. Life is precious at the time of creation. Look at the science page to see the evidence of when life begins.


  "Whoever sheds man's blood. by man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man." Genesis 8:6

Refer to John 19:11; Acts 25:11; Rom. 13:4 For clear NT support for this punishment.




 "You shall not murder" Deut. 5:17

From the Merriam Webster Dictionary murder is defined as, "to kill (a human being) unlawfully and with premeditated malice"



There is the thought that pro-life people are hypocrites because many believe in capital punishment. The belief that innocent pre-born life deserves protection and the belief that people convicted of crimes punishable by death should have justice carried out by their death are not hypocritical. 


 "If men fight and hurt a women with child, so she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the women's husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judge determines. But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe." Exodus 21:22-24

John MaCarthur's Bible commentary says, "Significantly  for the abortion debate, the fetus was considered a person; thus, someone was held accountable for its death or injury."



" not put an innocent or honest person to death..." Exodus 23:7b

Here The Lord describes who should not be "put to death". Although, no man is innocent in God's Holy eyes for it says in Romans "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" and "the punishment for sin is death", God  is revealing the terms of man to man justice. There is no justice in killing an innocent or honest person. That would be called murder, not justice. Abortion is murder.



"Speak up for those who cannot speak themselves..." Proverbs 31:8-9

God values human life, that is why he demands justice for evil done towards human life. He charges us to speak for those who can not defend themselves, those who are weak. Who is weaker or more speechless than a pre-born baby?

Quotes Concerning Christianity  and Abortion 


"In the past, some people have mistakenly speculated that perhaps the body might be in the process of formation for some time, and then 'God breathes a soul into it.' They had it backward. The life that is present forms matter into a body for itself' (Joseph Breig, "Life Forms Matter," The Catholic News, Jan. 24, 1974, p. 8).


"For all the talk of freedom and self-determination, the abortion movement is at its heart a movement denying rights to a silent segment of humanity and soliciting public sanction, support and subsidy to its own cause"

(Donald P. Shoemaker, ABORTION, THE BIBLE AND THE CHRISTIAN, Hayes Publishing Co., 1976, p. iv).


The following quotes are from Mother Teresa:

"Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants."

"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."

"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters" 

 "Please don't kill the child. I want the child. Please give me the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted, and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child, and be loved by the child. From our children's home in Calcutta alone, we have saved over 3,000 children from abortions. These children have brought such love and joy to their adopting parents, and have grown up so full of love and joy!"

"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even his life to love us. So the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love - that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion. "
