Extracts from this document...


"ABORTION IS ONE OF THE GREATEST EVILS, IN THIS MODERN DAY, FOR A CHRISTIAN TO COMMIT" In my opinion Abortion is a head of the rest when it comes to being the greatest of all evils. Even though I believe this, I can understand and see how other people may find it hard to come to terms with my opinion. They may believe that other great evils for example crime and war may be as evil or even a greater evil. I will show in my coursework part C why I think abortion is the greatest of evils and should be taken very seriously. In our world today abortion is only increasing to be the greatest of all evils. The abortion rates are on the increase, which I think goes against a lot of what God intends us to do in life and what not to do.

As a Christian the killing of a unborn child in the womb is 100% murder as to us the child is living and can feel pain. as God has made up its future to live through life. No person on earth should have the power to take away life as it is God who is the only person to give life and also take it away. Even though abortion is a great evil we got to consider the facts that there is other evils in the world such as crime, way, divide between rich and poor and disease. These evils should also be examined and us humans should get together and use are unique supremacy an stand up against these evils and vanquish them so there is evil no more.
