Introduction

AO3 What Christians believe about life is up to them; they should not try to make others accept their position. Would a Christian agree or disagree? Give a reason for your answer showing that you have considered more than one point of view. I as a Christian respect the sanctity of life, but I also feel that each of us as Christians has the right to our own opinions. We decide how to run our own lives. When we were born we were given the right of 'free will'. God can only steer us in the right path of life but it is we as human beings who makes the ultimate decision by what we actually do with our lives and what we agree or disagree with. ...read more.

They probably thought it was the best thing to do at the time. They have probably regretted it ever since and the last thing they need is to be reminded of it by a judgemental Christian who doesn't have the slightest idea of what they went through making that crucial decision. As for the people who are considering the proposition of abortion we shouldn't enforce our personal opinion on them at a delicate time in their lives. We should talk to them and try to convince them to keep the child. Make them aware of the alternatives that are there for example adoption.

Conclusion

We as Christians could also give more support to this organisation. There is also a dispute between Christians about the topic of euthanasia. Is it right or is it wrong? In the eyes of the law and God euthanasia is wrong. But like abortion this is a topic that we can only have our own opinion on. Not everyone will agree with what each and every one of us believes. In conclusion, I give my opinion that both abortion and euthanasia are wrong because I feel that we should cherish life, not destroy it. But I also know that some people will disagree with what I feel, that I understand. I will never enforce my opinion onto anyone who disagrees with me because we all do have 'free will'. We only have to answer to God for our own actions in life, when our lives on earth are complete. Ciara Devlin 11F R.E Coursework Mrs. Talbot ...read more.
