Abortion—He Has the Right to Her Own BodyRoot Causes of Abortion

James 4:2.

Seeking to stop the slaughter of the unborn by merely declaiming abortion is like building a bridge by starting in the middle. James reminds us that we murder because we lust. Statistics tells us that nearly 9 of ten women who get an abortion in America are unmarried. That is telling.

Abortion & Related Sins
Too often we in the evangelical church have taken a binary approach to the problem. Either we separate the sin of abortion from all its related sins and give our time and attention there, or we decide it’s a heart issue, and our only hope is mass conversion. (Forgetting the hard truth that 1 of 6 abortions in America is procured by a professing evangelical.)

Feminism
Abortion, in the end, is a heart issue. And it is a good thing to seek its end. But in between these two poles we have the great evil of feminism. Now please don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying we have abortion because the women folk have gotten uppity. Nor that the central claim made by movement feminists, that “reproductive freedom” is the lynchpin of women’s liberation, is at fault, however foolish the idea might be.
