  3. Abortion is killing an innocent person.
  4. Killing innocent persons violates the fifth commandment (Exodus 20:13).

Some characteristics God attributes to the unborn: (more…)

They report supernatural events that took place in fulfillment of specific prophecies and claimed that their writings are divine rather than human in origin.”
