The Word of God is clear: a child in the womb is a person already, fashioned by God, fearfully and wonderfully made, even able to leap for joy. And so we stand our ground in the fight for the sanctity of life—fighting with compassion, with honor, with wisdom and truth, with endurance, and with prayer.
In the sixth commandment, God forbids murder. This determines our response to the tragedy of abortion. But this also reminds us that anger and hatred toward one another are serious sins in God's sight. Forgiveness and life are only to be found in the perfect one who was murdered for our sake, Jesus Christ.
