Many Christians believe that abortion is morally wrong because it involves taking innocent human life, which is supposed to be sacred. The Bible teaches that human beings are made in the image of God and have inherent value and worth.

Therefore, taking innocent human life is considered a grave sin in the Christian faith. Additionally, many Christians believe that life begins at conception and that the unborn child has the same rights and protections as any other person. As a result, many Christians believe that abortion is morally wrong and violates God's commandment, "Thou shall not kill."

God's Love is for Everyone, Repent, and You May Be Forgiven

According to Hibbs in an article in Calvary Chapel Magazine, God's love and grace extend to everyone, regardless of their past or current circumstances. As Psalm 139 states, every child is fearfully and wonderfully made at the moment of conception, with a unique DNA and purpose. While we may have scars and pain from our past, God can take those experiences to shape us into who He has called us to be.

He can heal our souls and give us a new purpose, just as He did for the author who found meaning and purpose through Jeremiah 1:5. For those who may be facing an unplanned pregnancy, the author encourages them to consider the life growing within them and to seek guidance from the Lord on the next steps.

Other people are not lucky enough to conceive a baby, and they may serve the purpose of caring for and supporting the child's development.

According to Christianity Daily, with the recent changes in U.S. abortion laws, it is expected that the use of medical abortions will rise as it becomes more accessible to obtain the pills through retail pharmacies. However, it's important to note that the availability of the medication may still be limited in states with restrictive abortion laws, making it difficult for individuals seeking to terminate their pregnancy.

The American College of Pediatricians' study on chemical abortions confirms the risks and potential complications, such as bleeding and infection. It warns against self-administering the drugs without a healthcare provider's supervision, in agreement with the criticisms of the FDA's recent decision to expand the availability of the abortion pill.
