Christian Views on Abortion

Christian Views on Abortion

There are a number of Christian views on abortion. Do oyu have a Christian view on abortion? As a Christian single, have you, or would you ever consider an abortion? Do you even have a well thought out Christian view on abortion?  Having own biblical view on abortion, dating and pre-marital sex can help save you  from  making some very bad and painful decisions in your dating life, as the following email we received from a sister in the Lord shows.

The following is a personal story of a Christian single girl who ended up getting an abortion. Instead of judging her, I ask that you pray for her, and write her with your encouragement and advice. I am not compromising her identity, but only sharing an email address because she is seeking help form other single Christians:

“I dated this guy for almost two years. Everything was almost perfect throughout. We even prayed and went to church together. However we knew we were still struggling with premarital sex and tried to abstain from this. Well, it wasn’t to long before I became pregnant this spring and did the unthinkable as a Christian women.

I am still struggling trying to forgive myself and was hoping that the guy would comfort me through my personal struggle. He only neglected me and started cheating on me (of which he was doing the entire time in our relationship without me knowing). I felt betrayed and angry. I tried to be the best woman I could be throughout our relationship but he still hurt me and cheated on me behind my back.

He eventually told me he didn’t love me anymore and broke up with me in April. I thought real true love sticks by you whether you are right or wrong. I know that I was wrong in having an abortion and I pray every day that God forgives me. But how can someone that told me they would marry me and would stick by me always, leave me in the worst state of my entire life?  How can God let me still be in love with him when I continue to “pray without ceasing” that He destroy my feelings for this guy?

The guy is is out dating someone else and is happy not thinking about what I am going through, BUT I am trying to stay single to work on my relationship with God and to practice abstinence to prevent history from repeating itself. Why do I have to still hurt especially when I am trying to be a doer of the work instead of a hearer? I am so depressed right now that I can’t even think. My Christian brothers and sisters, someone, please explain this!

Bible Verse of Day:7.30.09

~And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God~1 Corinthians 6:11

      Dear friend,
      i went through the same thing. Healing will take time but eventually you will heal. I know it might be hard for you to come to terms with the abortion being that you were a christian and you knew it was not God’s will- i went through it too. I prayed and searched for scripture on forgiveness, then i accepted that i steped out of God’s will, so i came back to him with a repentful hear and lay myself at His feet, and now for me- THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION!! The devil tries to remind me of what i did. I simply say to him- yes i let you lie to me and i fell for your tricks and made a mistake i cant reverse BUT the God of second chances, the Lord who forgives and cleans me white as snow, the Lord who restored, the Lord who saves has done forgiven me, cleansed me, and now i am whole and full and walking in forgiveness. God does not hold it against me. But remember you have got to take yourself to Him and repent and allow healing to take place and forgive yourself as well.
      Today i am enjoying my walk with the Lord, forgetting what is behind and expecting and experiencing His mercies everyday. I am able to abstain and i am practising secondary virginity till God brings my husband.
      I will say a prayer for you my dear sister.

        Dear sisters in Christ,

        I, myself am going through something very similar. I was seeing a guy for3 years and pretty much through my yeasr in university. During this time I had been flirting with fornication and had sexual encounters with him on numerous occasions.

        A year ago, myself and the guy had split up. Durin gthis period, I had a dream that I was pergnant and had given birthto a baby girl with my ex. The dream felt so strong in my sprirt that I felt as though the next time I have a sexual encounter with him ( whether in a few months or even years) I wil become pregnant.

        A year after I had that dream, I reconciled with my ex boyfriend. He had promised things would be different and that we would now be togther exclusively. On one particular night, I forgot about my dream or feelings and for teh first time since my dream had had sex and as expected, fell pregnant.

        As a christian young woman ( 23) I was so sure it was a sign and that my child was a blessing. I was determined to keep my child and inform my family. 6 weeks after I had inforemd my ex of my decsion. I found out from anotehr friend he had got another girl pregnant. The otehr girl was already 3months pregannt and was also keeping her baby.

        I panicked and in a motion of sorrow, loneliness and fear I abortd my baby. I was convinced I could mvoe on and as I hadjust graduated would be able to start my lfie fresh and meet my husband at the right time.

        6 months later, I am still regretting my decison. I now suffer from depression and find it too hard to even leavemy house, I weep on my own at night and beg God to forgive me. I keep thinkingof the child I aborted and how my life should and would have beem iregardles sof my ex boyfriend. I live in shame and feel so condemed. I am searching for scriptures to confort me and am so desperate for God’s forgiveness. I have now pledged to not have sex again until I am married and will talk against abortion to anyone.

        Please pray for me!

          My sister u don’t need to pray repeatedly for forgiveness of sins. The blood of Jesus is so powerful that just a single touch in the holy of hloies was enough for the atonement of sins. God is not like man who forgives u but still keeps record of ur offence, for he says that i will remember their sins no more.Once u v repented and sought 4 4giveness u’r a free woman. As for ur ex b frank abt ur feelings abt him and discuss it w God sincrely. I’m sure God will definately give u a helping hand so that u can also 4give him d same way He 4gave u. Finally give no room 4 the devil 2 accuse u once God has set u free and enjoy ur sweet fellowship in Christ and God will bring the right person to u in due season
          Hoping 2 hear ur testimoney soon. Ps 51
