There are few issues in our culture that are more contentious than abortion.
Some see abortion as a great evil; others count abortion as an important freedom; many have been deceived by the misleading language of the abortion industry; still others feel that abortion is an ethical gray area. Many assume that since the Bible does not contain the word “abortion” that it does not speak to this important issue.
But God is not silent on the issue of abortion.
On this episode of the Reasonable Theology podcast we look at what God’s Word says about the value of human life and whether the unborn count as valuable human life.
Along the way we will see that there is one central question in the abortion debate that must be addressed: Is the unborn a human person?
As apologist Greg Koukl rightly frames the issue: “If the unborn is not a human person, no justification for abortion is necessary. However, if the unborn is a human person, no justification for abortion is adequate.”
