Some Christians e.g. Roman Catholics are or will be against Abortion and Euthanasia, where as other Christians, such as Protestants, believe that in some circumstances, Abortion and Euthanasia are necessary. Their motto is that Abortion and Euthanasia is 'the lesser of two evils.'
This does not mean that they fully agree with Abortion/ Euthanasia because they actually discourage it rather than ban it so it is a sin.
The Catholic Church preaches that Abortion is wrong because their teaching states that life begins at conception. This is when a released ovum is fertilised. They believe that it is wrong to take a life, therefore, abortion is wrong.
Pro-life groups also agree and take to this view because they are 'for life' and believe that if we are given life or ownership of another, we are to respect and take full responsibility over it.
Protestants say that Abortion is sometimes necessary, because it is 'the lesser of two evils.' In the case of Rape, most people would agree with non-Catholic beliefs. Their thoughts would consist of some what the following; "How must she feel?" or "How can you expect her to keep the child of her attacker?"
