The Bible on Abortion
A word to all who believe that the Bible is the word of God, there is no prohibition against abortion in the Bible, the Bible says absolutely nothing about abortion, not one word, so, if the Bible is the word of God, then did he just forget? Anti-abortionists claim that the sixth commandment, fifth if you’re Catholic, covers abortion but there are hundreds of enumerated prohibitions applied to other commandments, yet no mention of abortion when it comes the sixth, and most importantly, that is a theological rationale to what is a secular matter. No matter how much “they” wish it so the Constitution does not establish a theocracy, it purposefully avoids any mention of a god. Anti-abortionism is patriarchy couched in religious gibberish. It’s not about banning abortion per se, it’s about controlling a woman’s reproductive power, regardless of the stated rationale.
