Explain how Christians might put their beleifs about abortion into
Many Christians beleive that it is their duty to be a stweard of the
Earth and all its inhabitants as taught by the Bible. They also
beleive that an unborn child falls into this catagory, because of this
many Christians turn their faith into action by joining a pro-life
organisation. However, there are also Christians who are pro-choice,
meaning they beleive that the pregnant women should have the right to
decide whether she wants a child or not.
To take action for their beleifs a pro-life Christians could do many
things or join many different organisations, or they could just be
open about their view in disscussions. The main organisations against
abortion are Life and SPUC (the Society for the Protection of Unborn
Children), these organisations are both very openly against abortion
and beleive they are life saving organisations.
SPUC feels that ‘Abortion denies the most basic of human rights--the
right to life--which is justly due to each member of the human family’
This shows how they feel that abprtion is know different from
executions and murder, from this it is easy to see why many pro-life
Christians join such organisations. They could also go on marches to
demonstrate their beleifs in a large group and try and get their
government to change its policies. A Christian’s beleifs could also
affect they way they vote, instead of voting for who they usually do
they could look out for candidates who anti-abortion. This in turn
could bring about the end of such easily obtainable abortions.
They could also stop unwanted pregnancies before they occure by
organising and giving proper sex-education talks to young people in a
church, youth center or school. They could offer alternatives to
abortion by becoming baby-sitters or even foster-carers to a lesser
extent, this would mean that if the parent wanted to abort the baby
because she felt that she wouldnt have time, the Christian could help
her to raise the child.
