@Zomvee’89 – Jewish law says it isn’t a child until it takes its first breath. Jesus never said anything about abortion, but hung around with prostitutes, so one presumes he was aware of the process, and said nothing.
If you really want to get Biblical here, it behooves one to actually READ the thing.
Exodus 21:22-25: “When men have a fight and hurt a pregnant woman, so that she suffers a miscarriage, but no further injury, the guilty one shall be fined as much as the woman’s husband demands of him, and he shall pay in the presence of the judges. But if injury ensues, you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.” In other words, forcing a miscarriage does not require the “life for life” requirement. (Of course, Jesus struck all that down with HIS law, but, hey, let’s go all in.)
Ecclesiastes 6:3-5: "If a man beget a hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he. For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness. Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known any thing: this hath more rest than the other.” In other words, better to die before birth than live an unhappy life.
Numbers 3:39-40: “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Count all the firstborn Israelite males who are a month old or more and make a list of their names.’” This is even beyond birth – a month beyond birth.
Genesis 2:7: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” This is the source of the Jewish law that one is not considered a living soul until you take your first breath.
Numbers 5:27: An actual abortion process is described as necessary if a woman cheats on her husband, performed by the priest!
