Tertullian on Abortion

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 6:30 AM

"In our case, murder being once for all forbidden, we may not destroy even the fetus in the womb, while as yet the human being derives blood from other parts of the body for its sustenance. To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing;  nor does it matter whether you take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to the birth.  That is a man which is going to be one; you have the fruit already in the seed."

Tertullian
