I don't think that a person who is pro-choise is a Christian and here is why. First of all we are all made in the image of God and given a free Will. The Bible says that your body does not belong to you, that it belongs to God. Do women have a right to abort something that belongs to God? God knows all things and He knows your body even to the number of hairs you have in your head. If you abort a baby (since life starts at conception) then it is killing a life that God created.

One of the Commandments says ",Thou shall not murder", and that is what abortion is. A Christian would follow the Word of God before that laws of men. No matter where you are in this matter, you can repent, accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and follow Him and know who He is through reading and understanding His Word the Bible. He will give you Eternal Life and write your name in the Book of Life.

Jesus Christ is the only Way, the Truth and the Life. The only way to Eternal Life. If you don't know Him, with all the things happeni ng in this World, this is the time to know the Creator of the Universe.

As stated by others, the Bible is clear that God views those who are in the womb are human beings (Jer 1, Psa 139). From the moment of conception, there is a continuum to a fully formed baby, and there is no point at which one could say there is a clearly defined break. Man has made up laws which place one person’s rights above those of another, which is no different than what happened when certain people were deemed “not human” and therefore could be disposed of without consequence.

A person’s DNA is enough to identify them as a unique person and can subject them to capital punishment if they are linked to crimes like murder. It is at the moment of conception that a person’s DNA is formed; yet those unborn with that unique DNA are not regarded as human beings with commensurate rights to life in many countries. This disconnect, I believe, is part of the “darkened in their understanding” referred to in Eph 4:17-19 which unbelievers are caught. John MacArthur says this results in intellectual futility, ignorance of God’s truth, becoming spiritually and morally calloused, and depraved in mind. The only solution to this is a renewal of the mind that comes with life in Christ.
