  • Most don't believe in it, but there are groups who are not discriminating, or going to punish someone for doing so.

  • I don't know. I don't think it's just a religion thing. I don't agree with abortion and it has nothing to do with religion.

  • There are lots of pro-choice Christians. And there are those, like scout_mom said, that don't agree with abortion without having religious justification.

  • Savedmom2011 as for different kind of religion they all probaly have different views what do u think about abortion?

    Answer by Savedmom2011 at 4:46 PM on Mar. 31, 2011

  • It's been my experience that most Christians are against abortion in a religious context. Now whether or not they are politically prolife or prochoice, and whether they tend to judge those who have them or not, is a whole other matter. But I can't say for certain that ALL Christian denominations are religiously against abortion.

  • I can say I know people who say they're Christians and they've had abortions. While a specific religion (or denomination) might not support the idea, each individual ultimately makes that decision for themselves. How many people do you know go to such-and-such church but don't agree with all of it's teachings?

  • I'm with KelleyP77 on this. Most Christians I know are personally opposed to abortion, in the sense that they believe it is wrong and would not choose it. However, not all Christians I know are politically pro-life. I know quite a few who are politically pro-choice in the sense that they don't think abortion should be illegal under the law.
    I know for me, I'm personally pro-life in that I would not choose to abort a child that had a decent chance at life (where I might waver is with, for instance, a child with anencephaly or another condition incompatible with life... thankfully I have never been in that position.) However, politically I am very pro-choice because I am very strong on patient choice in medical matters... I don't think anyone's hand should be forced when making medical decisions for themselves- and the decision to undergo pregnancy/childbirth is a medical decision.

  • i was pro-life before i was Christian.
    But I AM PRO LIFE FOR ME... and would never try to take that right away from others -- we all have to live with the choices we make but should not force our beliefs on others.
