Abortion—Is an Unborn Child a Person?

by Tom James on 07/06/18

In regards to the crucial ongoing debate about making abortion legal or not...


Consider the prior theological question: is the fetus a Person?!?

Please consider these points:

  1. If there is a Supreme Being (i.e. God) who gives each human being on the Planet Earth Personhood (or a soul), then each one of us the power to collectively create a democratic form of government, formed “by the people and for the people.”

  2. Since this Personhood is God-given, it must be the same for everyone.

  3. So a baby in the womb is a Person.

  4. Therefore, to abort it is an act of murder!

If, on the other hand, there is no God, then:

  1. We are not Persons.

  2. We are animals, only.

  3. We are a nation of laws, which are made by the powerful, the elite. We have no inalienable rights. We have no rights to a democratic form of government.

  4. The question of the right to abort a fetus is a legal one, as is euthanasia, torture, slavery, due process, freedom of speech, worship, etc., etc.

If you have the power to CHOOSE your governing body, then you have a God-given ability to CHOOSE whether to abort an unborn child! So CHOOSE whether you believe in a God-given choice, or an atheistic freedom to kill and enslave whomever one pleases!
