The bible says that abortion is murder.
But is it murder?
Is abortion murder?
And if so, how does that apply to women?
As a scholar, I know first-hand that there are multiple ways that the bible has used the word “murder.”
And I know that a woman who is raped is a victim, too, and that she is entitled to the protection of the law.
But what is it about abortion that has made it a murderer?
In this article, I’ll try to answer that question.
I’ll also try to offer some perspective on what abortion is and isn’t, and how that might impact the law of murder.
