There are, however, serious religious ramifications. I believe God is smiling at the moment. I do not believe for a moment that abortion should be legal. We are created in the image of God, and all human life is sacred. Especially here in the United States where couples wanting to adopt a baby have to go through massive amounts of red tape, and then when they realize that the wait and red tape is too long, they end up travelling to China or Africa or some other part of the world to adopt from where the process is easy and quick. It would behoove us to repeal Roe vs. Wade and make adopting an American baby as easy as applying for a credit card or taking a trip to the doctor's office. Indeed, many infertile American couples wait years to adopt while pregnant women not wanting to keep their baby hurry to organizations such as Planned Parenthood to get an abortion. It is a sad tale of death by bureaucracy.
There are serious consequences of murder, and abortion is murder. The relevant scripture is here:
"Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" Genesis 1:26
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." Psalm 139:13-14
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward." Psalm 127:3
"I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb" Jeremiah 1:5
"Whosoever sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man." Genesis 9:6
"You shall not murder” Exodus 20:13
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations" Jeremiah 1:5
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16
"And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” Luke 1:41-44
"And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger." Luke 2:12-16
Needless to say, I would encourage the repeal of this act. It will save a lot of human lives.
