Anonymous asked: A little ammo here for you:
If an attack on a woman causes a miscarriage the attacker must pay a fine. If he causes serious damage to the mother it's "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". This indicates that a fetus does not have equal standing under God's law.
Monetary values are assigned to lives according to age and gender. Lives under one month old have no value.
Numbers 5:21-21, 27-28
A potion given to the Israelites by God is used to determine paternity. If the father is not the husband, an abortion occurs. god clearly places no value on a fetus that is not the result of union between husband and wife.
God's law states that if a woman is pregnant and is to be executed there is to be no waiting for the fetus to be born. It is counted as part of the mother and she burned to death with it still in her womb.
Thanks anon. We’ve mentioned that there was biblical support for abortion before on this tumblr but the article mostly dealt with the verses most people interpreted as being against abortion, but these scripture citations are great! I try to keep religion out of my abortion debating, but I can’t deny how great these are for incorporating religion into it.
Maybe using these will help a hyper-religious 12-16 year old reexamine their stance.
