But in fact, the welfare of a mother and her child are never at odds, even in sexual assault cases. As the stories of many women confirm, both the mother and the child are helped by preserving life, not by perpetuating violence. Sadly, however, the testimonies of women who have actually been pregnant through sexual assault are routinely left out of this public debate. Many people, including sexual assault victims who have never been pregnant, may be forming opinions based on their own prejudices and fears rather than the real life experiences of those people who have been in this difficult situation and reality.(1) This how they think in society.
God Says to Love Our Children.
Titus 2:4 — Young women should be taught to love their children. But an unborn baby is a “child,” and a woman who has conceived is a mother even before the baby is born. The Bible tells us how we should act toward those we love (I Cor. 13:4-7), and this teaching definitely does not allow us to kill them (Rom. 13:8-10). We have clearly established that abortion is wrong without even (thus far) examining passages specifically dealing with murder. Abortion does fit the Bible definition of murder. But even if it did not, it would still be sinful because it is unloving, a lack of appreciation for God’s blessings, and a gross abuse of our stewardship to raise our children as God directs.(2)
Why not trying to see it from the baby’s percepective?
Let’s just begin this with ”if”
If the baby (the fruit of love) which is coming out of actually a sin, is born.
If he/she came to life. The mother never wanted him/her. She might even think of dying thrice than giving birth to him. As a matter of fact, her family already showed her hell. Then, here comes the society who would never stop blaming her from a mistake that only god knows whether he will forgvie her or not. Again, finishing with the same probability, that the woman followed the bible’s thought and had the baby.
Aren’t she in fact, raising him/her with all that tension, violence, and pain she had been through? Let’s suppose that she won’t. How would her excpect that her baby live after? He/she will directly think of revange. I am not talking about ecceptions here. I am talking about a society that tightly goes with religion. This society where shame is brought by having a girl. This society may look open-minded in surface, but deep inside, this society is fundamentally conservative. It is how it is. Let’s just be honnest to our seleves. Even puritans before, cursed the woman Hestler Prynne for her sin and never asked her for the wrong guy. They screwed her and put an ”A” in her breast just because at that time, she didn’t have means to do abortion and hide her mistake.
Now, society evolves. People tend to say that they accept differences and sometimes wrong deeds. However, they keep trying to hide that mock gaze, they always succed on showing it. In the Tunisian society or any other society, wrong is wrong. Or esle, could someone here tell me what is the difference between humans and animals?
I just wonder why when we have temporary solutions for sins, we concider the solution itself a mistake?
I know it is partial, but can anyone for a minute put himself/herself on the shoe of that poor and innocent child who was refused first by his/her dad then his/her mommy and even his/her family then society later on?
Don’t you think that the choice of abortion in itself is a refusal and denail of having the baby?
Why do they still argue about life and death? What if the baby decides to die than seeing the day of the funeral of his/her mother?
Let’s just face it, abortion in mostly all cases, is the best thing to do than cursing a life of an innocent child!
The abortion debate asks whether it is morally right to terminate a pregnancy before child birth, I would say the right question would be whether it is right to decide on behlf of the mother and the baby himself!

2 thoughts on “What the bible says about abortion VS. Reality”
I think that abortion is needed only if there is conflict
I had to do it once… I really wanted the baby but I thought of all what you ve been saying in your last part and yes … I did it… I would never regret that
