A recent religious survey among members of a very large Lutheran church body yielded the following results:

Sixty-five percent answered that they believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases.

As one who has been a Lutheran all of his life (66) years I was taught the following from the Bible and still believe them to this day:

  • The fifth commandment says "you shall not kill," which translates into any abortion is murder.
  • Life begins at the moment of conception which translates into any abortion is murder.

Just because the current law allows abortions does not mean that abortion is okay. As a Lutheran Christian I follow what the Bible says and its says that abortion is murder.
