Do you think God forgives those who've had an abortion?

Or do you think at some point you have to answer for it? Not trying to stir up controversy. I really want to know. I think there are alot of women who've had an abortion before ever having a child who were too young to really comprehend their actions.

  • Yes, if the person is really sorry then they can absolutely be forgiven. That's just how awesome God is. Even though sometimes people make terrible mistakes in life. He will forgive anybody if they're honestly sorry and not just saying it because they did something wrong.

  • No sin is greater than another, all of it is the same to Him. God forgives anything if we confess,repent, and ask for forgiveness. He wipes the slate completely clean. He's just that merciful. :-)

  • God will forgive them if they are truly repentant and if they confess what they have done as a sin against Him and ask for His forgiveness. 1 John 1:9

  • I am Catholic, and I was taught God will forgive those who ask.

    I have noticed that woman who are suffering from the pain of abortion tend to be more sorry for their actions. I have come across many woman who have been forgiven by God but can't forgive their actions.

  • According to the Quran, what we muslims believe to be the final revelation, every sin CAN be forgiven except the sin of associating partners with God and worshiping others. However this is at the complete mercy of Allah.
