| The case that liberal theologians make to support the right to abortion emphasizes the fact that the Bible says nothing specifically about abortion. They suppose that if God gave us no specific guideline in regard to the issue, we must base our position on a humanist worldview.
Did God leave us in the dark? Some people enjoy the darkness like a gray security blanket to protect them from accountability. If they don’t know, they must be innocent.
People performed abortions long ago, even in Old Testament times. If the Bible does not specifically prohibit something, does that mean that the Bible permits it? The Bible gives guidelines that affect many topics without needing to address them specifically.
The Bible also says very little of crisis pregnancy. Women in the Bible wanted to have children. They didn’t let college or career get in the way of that desire.
I only need to point to one verse in the Bible. Jehovah told his prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” This is one of many verses in the Bible which refer to someone’s existence before birth. God does not say that he formed your body in the womb and placed your soul inside later. He says that before he formed you in the womb, he knew you. Jeremiah 1:5
