An unforgetable decision: Abortion

Our Bodies?
Those who favor the legality of abortion assert that a woman has the right to complete authority over her body. If a woman is carrying a child inside her, and she doesn’t want him there, then the woman, so they say, has the right to remove him — that is, abort him.

Are children totally the result of the desire of their parents?

Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die..
From the time of conception the human embryo is distinct from his mother. The mother’s body would reject the fetus as foreign tissue and abort the baby except for the existence of the placenta, which separates the child from his mother while in her womb.  

If the life growing in the mother doesn’t belong to her, what right does she have to take innocent life?

19 ¿O ignoráis que vuestro cuerpo es templo del Espíritu Santo,ñ el cual está en vosotros, el cual habéis recibido de Dios, y que no sois vuestros?, 20 pues habéis sido compradoso por precio; glorificad, pues, a Dios en vuestro cuerpo y en vuestro espíritu, los cuales son de Dios.p

: “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

We don’t have the absolute right to do whatever we wish with our bodies.
