Abortion: The Murder of Nascent People

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the Lutheran pastor who execution was ordered by Hitler in 1944, was as vehemently opposed to abortion as he was to Nazism. On page 175-76 of his work Ethics, Bonhoeffer wrote:

"Destruction of an embryo [an unborn baby less than 8-weeks old] in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon the nascent [developing] life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder."

Watch "180" now!
