Actress Alyssa Milano has now marshalled the Bible and science to support her pro-abortion position. Unfortunately, she is wrong on both accounts. The Bible and science, rightly understood, are totally pro-life.
Tweeting on April 1 (with no apparent irony intended), Milano said, “I love God. I believe in God.
“But I don’t believe my personal beliefs of which we can’t confirm should override scientific facts and what we can confirm.
“‘If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?’ John 3:12”
As for Milano’s love for God and belief in God, that is between her and God. At least she is not denying His existence. That’s a step in the right direction.
As for her quoting the Bible, while the words are taken out of context and, in reality, work against her, I’m glad that she feels that quoting the Bible is important. We agree!
It’s just that she could not have chosen two worse witnesses to defend the “right” of abortion. To repeat: both the Bible and science, rightly understood, are pro-life.
Let’s start with Scripture.
First, the Word teaches that God carefully and lovingly formed us in the womb (Psalm 139:13-16).
Second, it teaches the personhood of the baby in the womb (Luke 1:41-42).
Third, it teaches the potential destiny of each child in the womb (Genesis 25:23; Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 1:15).
Fourth, it teaches the importance of caring for “the least of these,” the most vulnerable and hurting (Matthew 18:1-6, 10; 25:31-46).
Fifth, it teaches us to stand up for the innocent being led to slaughter (Proverbs 24:11-12).
Sixth, it teaches us that God hates the shedding of innocent blood, especially of babies (see, for example, Jeremiah 7:30-34; 17:1-6; Proverbs 6:17).
(For those who have had abortions or participated in abortions, I should add that Scripture also teaches that Jesus died for every sin we have committed – including the sin of abortion – and offers us forgiveness through the cross.)
