"...The church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth."
I Timothy 3:15
Abortion is morally wrong because it is morally wrong to murder a person made in the image and likeness of God
(Gen. 9:5-6; Ex. 20:13; 21:12, 14, 22-23; 23:7; Lev. 24:17; Num. 35:31; De. 5:17; 27:25).
From the moment of conception, an unborn baby is a distinct person made in the image and likeness of God. God forms a person in the womb, not a non-person.
(Job 10:8-12; 31:15; 34:19; Ps. 139:12-19; Is. 49:1,5; Jer. 1;5).
David was a person from the moment of his conception (Ps. 51:5). Job was a person from the moment of his conception (Job 3:3). John the Baptist was a person while in his mother's womb.
(Luke. 1:13-17, 39-44)
The Lord Jesus Christ was a person while in Mary's womb (Mt. 1:18-25). God calls some people to His future service while they are yet in the womb. (Isa. 49:1,5; Jer. 1:5; Lk. 1:13-17; Gal. 1:15-16)
In the New Testament, the same Greek word ("brephos") is used to describe an unborn baby inside the womb as is used to describe a person outside the womb.
(Lk. 1:41,44; 2:12,16; 18:15; Acts 7:19; 17:28-29; II Tim. 3:15; I Pet. 2:2)
Abortion may be legal according to man's laws, but it is still cold-blooded murder according to God's law. God hates "hands that shed innocent blood" (Pr. 6:17).
So must we.
