running extremely high. As to what a Christians perspective should be on this
subject can be found in God's word.
Genesis 9:6-7 " Whosoever sheds a man's blood, by man shall his
blood be shed: for in the image of God he made man. And you, be you
fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply
The command is to multiply, have lots of children, to not want children goes
against what God wants.
Ezekiel 33:25 "Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God;
Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed8210
blood: and shall ye possess the land?"
= A primitive root; to
spill forth (blood, a libation, liquid metal; or even a solid, that is, to mound

Exodus 20:13 & Deuteronomy 5:17 " You will not murder."
Exodus 21:22-23 " If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so
that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief [not intentional]
follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will
lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief
follow [deliberate hurting of the unborn child], then thou shalt give
life for life,"
Deuteronomy 27:25 " Cursed be he that takes reward to slay an
Psalms 139:13-16 " For you have possessed my reins: you have
covered me in my mother's womb... My substance was not hid from you, when I
was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in your [the
Lords book] book all my members were written, which in continuance were
fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."

Romans 14:11-12 " For it is written, As I live, says the Lord,

1 Enoch (Ethiopic) 99:5 "And in those days the destitute shall
go forth and carry off their children, And they shall abandon them, so that

cast forth their offspring unlawfully."
3 Sibylline Oracles 765 "rear your own offspring and do not kill

circumstances that he alone has out lined in his word, and abortion is not
listed as one of them.
