  • I believe that the souls of aborted babies go to Heaven.

  • I was told by my mother, that any person be it born or unborn is sent to the universe to be reborn. once they have carried out their duties on earth they become one with the universe ( or heaven). So yes i do believe, but I believe they are reborn into others. every new life is a soul of an ancient past.

  • I believe their souls get reborn in another person, because they never got a chance to live.

  • If you believe they have a soul, then it should be believed they have an afterlife. Maybe all souls are whole in heaven, regardless of age on earth. Certainly the most innocent of us all; infants, children, and fetuses would have the best afterlife.

  • i guess my question would be..Is there a difference between a soul and a spirit? idk if there is. but when i think of a persons spirit leaving their body...i know that that person has memories and this may be why we see ghosts..maybe some ghosts come back to places that they remember. A fetus though, their brain was probably never fully developed..they were never born to have any kind of memory of anything. I really don't know. ..maybe they could be soul-less spirits.

  • I don't see a difference between soul & spirit. I do however believe in reincarnation, so I would simply see those who are aborted as just moving on to another life rather than an afterlife...

  • I believe they will reincarnate for another try at fulfilling their goal. Hopefully, this time with a person that will give them the chance to do it.

  • Yes, aborted babies have an afterlife. They don't cease to exist, and they don't reincarnate into another person. I don't know what it's like. I do trust in God's mercy.

    Answer by flatlanderjenn at 1:02 PM on Oct. 25, 2010

  • Yes. I believe they are born to someone who has died who couldn't have a baby in heaven.
    BEcause I believe heaven is where all your dreams come true, whether it's created by a holy god or not. I believe dreams come true for any good person who goes to heaven.

  • I think these questions cannot be answered by us, mere mortals, and that we will know the truth after we die.
