Is the option to have an abortion acceptable with God when a woman is pregnant as the result of a rape?
Human life has both a divine origin and a divine purpose. (Gen. 1:27; Job 33:4; Ps. 100:3-5) Throughout the Bible we see reflected God's deep respect for life. He lovingly urged humans to treasure their lives and to respect the lives of others as sacred. Someone who took the life of another human, even a babe in the womb, was both guilty and accountable.—Gen. 9:5, 6; Ex. 21:14, 22-25.
