To a Christians abortion is infanticide, written in the law of the Romans in Jesus’ times. But there is nothing in the bible to support against abortions beside that it has been practiced throughout recorded human history. However, there are quotes from the bible that support going against abortion. “I will say to God…’your hands shaped me and made me. Will you now destroy me? Remember that you moulded me like clay.

Although they believe on contraception they don’t to agree with medical science, the bible, religious and legal traditions. And then there is another group that have totally the opposite view Pro-Choice- They believe that an abortion doesn’t differ fundamentally from other forms of birth...
