By request: Scriptures and abortion

With the help of then-Christian Humor Guide Greg Hartman, I once put together a series of articles on Scriptures and abortion. Here they are for your perusal:

Exodus 21 and Abortion explores the scripture that gets batted about most by abortion supporters.

Scriptures on the Unborn Apply to Abortion looks at specific scriptural references to prenatal life.

Assorted Scriptures and Abortion looks at scriptures on justice and on dealing with crises.

Then a visitor on my forum made a post that led to Hebrew Words Give Biblical Reflection on Abortion, looking at the Hebrew words for "compassion" and "womb." Hebrew Words and Abortion Part II looks at the Hebrew words denoting violence. Then I moved to the New Testament and looked into Greek Words and Abortion.

I also looked at Biblical reflections on Who is the Enemy?

And, for something that people who hate obnoxious holy-roller prolifers can sink their teeth into: God's Instructions to His People.

Go to town, kids!

My favorites are:
Psalm 1273-5: Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the
womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children
of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not
be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

Psalm 106:3-37: Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,
whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with

Leviticus 20:4: And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from
the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

Proverbs: 24:11: If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and
those that are ready to be slain; Read 10 also

Genesis 3:15: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
