All the nonsense arguments we love to hate.

Anti-choicer quotes the bible? Quote it back.

Exodus 21:22-23 If an attack on a woman causes a miscarriage the attacker must pay a fine. If he causes serious damage to the mother it’s “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”. This indicates that a fetus does not have equal standing under God’s law.

Leviticus 27:6
Monetary values are assigned to lives according to age and gender. Lives under one month old have no value.

Numbers 3:15 Similarly states that infants under one month do not count as people in the census.

Numbers 5:21-21, 27-28 A potion given to the Israelites by God is used to determine paternity. If the father is not the husband, an abortion occurs. god clearly places no value on a fetus that is not the result of union between husband and wife.

Genesis 38:24 God’s law states that if a woman is pregnant and is to be executed there is to be no waiting for the fetus to be born. It is counted as part of the mother and she burned to death with it still in her womb.

Job chapters 3 and ten both have Job lamenting that he was ever born, and wishing that he had been miscarried.

Ezekiel 37:8-10 even defines “first breath” as the absolute beginning of life.

[thank you Rabble Anon and tehsunshine for laying them out for quick reference].

Even the Vatican State isn’t “pure” when it comes to abortion.

Furthermore God values consent when it comes to carrying a pregnancy, at least when it comes to Jesus.

EDIT: I forgot Hosea 13:16 which is a prophecy about Samaria that says “their pregnant women ripped open”, so if you’re a Sinner your embryo/fetus means nothing in the eyes of God.

    Exactly @ Hannahology; i’ve mentioned several of these to the theists that tout Anti-Choice rhetoric at my College.

    Seems like there are more quotes in the bible supporting abortion and infanticide and the murder of women.
