Would you consider abortion in the following situations?

(1) There’s a preacher and wife who are very, very, poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she’s pregnant with number 15. They’re living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending she get an abortion?

• If so, you have just killed John Wesley, one of the great evangelists in the 19th century.

(2) The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. They have four children. The first is blind, the second is dead, the third is deaf, and the fourth has TB. She finds she’s pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you consider recommending abortion?

• If so, you have killed Ludwig Von Beethoven, one of the world’s greatest composers.

(3) A teenage girl is pregnant. She’s not married. Her fiancé is not the father of the baby, and they live in an occupied country dominated by a foreign power. Would you consider recommending abortion?

• If you said yes to the third case, you have just declared the murder of Jesus Christ!!
