So riddle me this. Let’s assume the following to be true:
1) All humans born into the world are under original sin. (That is, they will go to hell if they don’t accept Jesus as their personal savior.)
2) Unborn babies have souls.
3) God will forgive any sin for which we are truly sorry. (That is, if we’re really sorry and confess our sins — and also believe in Jesus — we’ll go to heaven.)
If all of that is true, then why aren’t all Christians pro-abortion?
It works like this. Any fetus that’s aborted before birth doesn’t get born into original sin. Maybe it goes to purgatory for a bit and then goes to heaven, or maybe it just hangs out in purgatory, or maybe it just gets thrown into the reshuffle pile and gets to try again. In any case, no original sin, no hell. Christians are very specific about that whole “BORN into original sin” thing.
