Abortion Views – I believe everyone was created in the image and likeness of God and that every soul, from the moment of conception to natural death, was created for a specific, unique, and unrepeatable purpose. Human beings were created to be in community; to depend on one another. The duty we owe others corresponds to the degree they depend on us. A baby in the womb is dependent on the mother alone. Only she can provide the necessary environment for the thriving of that child. Therefore, a mother has a unique duty toward her child until, at minimum, the child is born and it’s possible for others to take over. Abortion violates that duty and injures the mother, the father, and the child by denying each the dignity owed to them as human persons.
