In today’s world all you need to do is say the word abortion and it is sure to open a conversation. Sometimes that conversation can get quite heated and even turn into an argument. I find this to be true for several reasons, including: (1) One or both (all) parties are uneducated on the subject, (2) At least one person in the conversation has some experience in either having an abortion or being very involved in the abortion or pro-choice movement, (3) At least one party is very involved in the pro-life movement.

Abortion: əˈbôrSH(ə)n/ noun: abortion; plural noun: abortions “the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.”

With this in mind many Christian quotations against abortion can be found. Here are just 15 Christian quotes against abortion.

Featured Quote: “Legalized abortion is a national holocaust; an affront to our national character; a contradiction of established principles subscribed to from the beginning of Western Civilization; an insult to the principles of our Declaration of Independence; a bane of our national spirit; and a stench in the nostrils of Almighty God.”  ~ Chuck Baldwin

“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 dependent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners.” ~ Mother Teresa

Christian Quotes Against Abortion

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

“More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of fifty states statutes protecting the rights of unborn children. Abortion on demand now takes the lives of up to 1.5 million unborn children a year. Human life legislation ending this tragedy will some day pass the Congress, and you and I must never rest until it does. Unless and until it can be proven that the unborn child is not a living entity, then its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness must be protected.” ~ Ronald Reagan

“When we consider that women are treated as property it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit.” ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“For thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; And in thy book all my members were written, Which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” ~ Psalm 139:13, 16

“How many others suffered in silence, too ashamed and too afraid to speak about their pain? The world wouldn’t let them grieve for children they had aborted. How could they when the rhetoric said there was no child? How does one grieve what doesn’t exist? No one wanted to admit the truth.” ~ Francine Rivers

“Pro-life advocates don’t oppose abortion because they find it distasteful; they oppose it because it violates rational moral principles. The negative emotional response follows from the moral wrongness of the act.” ~ Scott Klusendorf

“Thine hands have made me and fashioned me Together round about; yet thou dost destroy me. Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; And wilt thou bring me into dust again? Hast thou not poured me out as milk, And curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, And hast fenced me with bones and sinews. Thou hast granted me life and favour, And thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.” ~ Job 10:8-12

Christ died that we might live. This is the opposite of abortion. Abortion kills that someone might live differently.” ~ John Piper

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” ~ Deuteronomy 30:19-20

“Just because Congress passes a law and says it’s all right to do a certain thing does not mean that it’s all right to do it. Abortion is still just as wrong today as it was the first day of January, 1973.” ~ Shelton Smith

“Thus saith the LORD that made thee, And formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; And thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.” ~ Isaiah 44:2

“State officials must know that we are serious about stopping abortion, which is a matter of clear principle concerning the babies themselves and concerning a high view of human life.” ~ Francis Schaeffer

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: And the fruit of the womb is his reward.” ~ Psalm 127:3

Final Thoughts

As a Bible believing Christian one should be against abortion because to abort a baby means to kill the baby and God is against blood shed of the innocent. Therefore, Christians should not support a woman’s “right” to choose to kill her unborn child because doing so would be killing a human that was created in the image of God (Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139:13-16, Exodus 21:22-25, Genesis 1:26-27; 9:6).
