Neal Grose recently expressed his opinion on abortion basing it on Exodus 21: 22-25. Here are the verses from the New International Version:
22: "If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined whatever the woman's husband demands and the court allows."
23: "But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life,"
24: "eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,"
25: burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise."
If you rely on this passage from the Bible and not some Liberal blog, then it is very easy to understand. How is the "humanness" of an unborn child being questioned here? It plainly gives the unborn child the same rights as any child. The text does not say "she" or "her" if the mother was the only one hurt. As far as the unborn child being the property of the father, Wow! If you said "Heavenly Father," I would agree. I take the verse to mean the baby's father is the head of the family and would handle legal actions.
Verses 23 -25 tells me that anyone responsible for the death of the mother or the unborn child should receive the death penalty. Abortion is not by accident; it is premeditated murder. There is no way I could vote for any politician who favor of abortion.
Ya"ll can support it by voting for Barack Obama if you want to, but understand that vote supports taking the life of God's creation. Check his voting record, especially in Illinois.
