Abortion, Christianity, and Consistency

Abstract
I describe three major areas in which I argue that Christians’ belief that abortion is morally wrong is inconsistent with other important abortion-related main-stream Christian beliefs or actions based on those beliefs. The three areas are: (1) abortion and soul-saving; (2) abortion prevention and violence; and (3) abortion and the fate of frozen fertilized human eggs. I make no direct argument about the moral status of abortion itself
