I believe, at least for a Bible believing Christian, the abortion issue is pretty straight forward. There is not a lot a bobbing and weaving that needs to be had. It's murder. It's murder of an innocent human--a baby, the most vulnerable and needing of protection . . . and it's often murder for convenience and/or for profit. There is not much difference between the pagans who use to throw their live babies into the fires of Moloch in order to get, ie., a better harvest, better luck, prosperity . . . and one who hires a professional baby murderer to slice and dice, crush, burn, poison a tiny baby, because it's going to be too expensive and burdensome (it will affect prosperity) to keep it alive and around. . . .
When is it okay to murder an inconvenient person? Because of rape? No. The resultant child is still innocent and a "wonderfully and fearfully" made unique creation of God.
Should a mother be punished for murdering her baby? Certainly the "doctor" should be. And we do punish a mother who murders her baby once it is born. . . . And it is not any less human or any less alive when it is in the womb, so, yes, to be consistent, it seems not such a far out notion to punish all involved with the murder of an innocent baby human being. . . .
Those who couch their "pro-life" stance with various "exceptions" (except, I would say where the mother's life truly is in danger, which is quite rare) . . . are basically saying, "yeah, well . . . sometimes it's okay to murder." Murder is the unlawful, premeditated killing of another human being. It is unlawful in God's eyes whether the degraded state recognizes it or not.
Planned Parenthood is founded by the racist, hateful, murderous bigot, fascistic Margaret Sanger. It is a front for eugenics and always has been. Anyone who supports it's heinous designs and calls themselves a Christian . . . is either a liar (by calling themselves a Christian). . . or an exceptionally uneducated fool on the subject, plain and simple. And any Christian worth his salt is going to have had already researched such an important issue long ago in their walk (in my opinion, anyway). . . .
Is there a commandment not to be poor? Not to make "bad deals"? Do economic issues out-trump those of life, murder, genocide?
There IS a commandment "Do Not Murder."
We would not support Auschwitz because, besides gassing/murdering/torturing "undesirables" they also produced some nice lampshades and developed interesting scientific experiments. Nor should anyone (calling themselves a Christian) support PP because it does a few "good things" for women.
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with
social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most
successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious
appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the
Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out
that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." --Margaret Sanger, Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.
Article 4. No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no
man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit…
Article 6. No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth. --Sanger, “America Needs a Code for Babies,” 27 Mar 1934
