As a pro-life atheist, I remain confused by ‘pro-choice’ Christians. They claim each of us were made in the image of their God and follow a doctrine that includes a commandment from that same God not to kill other humans, yet they advocate for doing just that. Even more baffling, they believe that the son of their God was delivered into our world as a prenatal child — a child they believe deserved no human rights.

A child they believe their mother should have had the right to kill on demand and without apology. Strangely, according to their beliefs, if Mary, the mother of Jesus (God himself?), had aborted him, they would not have been saved from their sins.

These Christians also believe they will be judged by their God upon death. How will they explain their support for the killing of millions of their God’s children, who, once again, they believe were created by him in his image?

If you are a Christian, please help us non-believers understand this seeming hypocrisy in the comments below.

A plea to win the hearts of those who choose to dehumanize our development and undermine our right to live.


  1. There is no Christian that is Pro Choice.
    As a Christian you are Pro LIFE!
    IF a person claims to be Christian and the say abortion is okay, then you know they are not really a Christian.

    I’m not sure which self-proclaimed Christians you are referring to. I am a Christian. I believe in the Holy Bible and the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ. If you truly want to know what a Bible believing Christian stands on as the Truth, read the Bible. We believe it to be the Holy Scripture breathed by God into the mind of man so it could be written down for us to follow as we walk in our Faith on this earth. Nowhere in the Bible will you find support for the Act of Abortion. God knew Mary had enough faith to carry His only Son all the way through to a natural birth. Otherwise, He never would have chosen her. When Jesus was walking to Jerusalem one day (as Israelites are required to return to that city at certain times of the year for Holidays and/or the collection of taxes), many people brought their little babies to Him for Him to lay His hands on them (pray for them). Jesus’ Disciples, aka most important followers, tried to stop them from interfering with His journey. But Jesus told them they should stop doing that and allow the children to come to Him. He said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭18:16-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬
    If Jesus actually tells His followers that His Kingdom belongs to the babies of this world, and that we should all have innocent, childlike faith, do you really think the Father of our Faith would condone abortion? It is the opinion of Bible believing Christians that He would not. There are other Bible passages that speak to this issue. I don’t think I should take the time or space to list them all here. I simply want to give you an idea of how the Christian Faith really stands on abortion. I could go on, but for your sake, I won’t. If you truly are seeking an answer to this question, pick up a Bible and read it for yourself. Start with the New Testament, you’ll likely find it more interesting. Then go back and read the Old Testament. You will see how the two are intertwined.
    I’m not an official in any church. I simply attend church and have studied the Bible for myself. So, I have no agenda here except for attempting to help you with your question. I gave you the information that came to my mind as I read your question. I hope it helps you in some way. God bless you in your inquiry into the issues that concern you.

    The original post by cultureshift was correctly referring to the Christian denominations called Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Episcopal and some other smaller denominations which do support abortion. This is NOT true of the Catholic or Orthodox Churches which oppose abortion 100%.

    Cultureshift’s post is entirely correct that Christians supporting abortion is a grave sin against God and a sharing in the sin of abortion.

    THOU SHALL NOT KILL (murder) is the fundamental and absolute prohibition of abortion. It is also the fundamental law of every civilized society that has ever been on earth, religious or not, atheist or not, it comes from God himself.


    1. It is entirely correct that Catholicism condemns abortion. In fact, if you look at a detailed examination of conscience (basically a guide to help you identify things that are sins that you should confess in confession), abortion is mentioned under the commandment to not kill. To participate or actively procure an abortion can result in automatic excommunication from the church.

    Absolutely agree Chris. You referred to one of The Ten Commandments written in stone by the finger of God Himself. There is No more direct evidence than that on where His church should stand on this issue!


  5. The only Christians that are pro choice are those that are 1) cultural Christians with no real faith and knowledge of scripture 2) those that are immature Christians like I was when I was 18, and afraid of being raped 3) those that think they are christin and twist And misinterpret scripture to fit there own adgenda and make their own god.
    THIS is one of the many reasons that theology is so inportant and for EVERY Christian, and not just the intellectuals. It is necessary to correctly understand and apply Scripture.
    It is either all truth and all relevant and no contradictions or it is all lies.
    Jesus was not a just a good teacher, he was either the son of God or a madman.
    That’s it.
