it begins during conception. In conception, human DNA exists in the zygote.
By 6to 8 weeks, the baby in the womb had very complex organs.
The first recordedevidence of induced abortion is found in the ancient Egyptian Ebers Papyrus from ca.1550 B.C. There are ancient Chinese records of abortions against royal concubinesfrom between the years of 515 B.C. and 500 B.C.
It's easy to see in the Bible that Godknew or comprehended the destiny of nations (including the paths of people) formthe womb. In Exodus 34:5-7, the verses call God as merciful. The Hebrew word formerciful in that passage is called rachum. Rachamim is Hebrew for mercy. Now, thispassage confirms an aspect of God being merciful. This character was to the prophetMoses on Mount Sinai. Ironically, racham is the root word for the Hebrew word forwomb called rachum. So, in the Hebrew language, the womb was a place of mercy.This is where a child was formed in the image of God and it was born from. Thewomb is a holy place. Exodus 21:22-25 is a verse talking about abortion. Beforegoing forward, here are the verses:
"....Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he ishis money.22 ¶ If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, andyet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman'shusband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,25 burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe..."

as pro abortionists maintain
), this textand no text in the Bible condones abortion at all. This text conclusively prove thatthe death of an infant is evil and a penalty ought to be required. Another view ofthese verses is that abortion is wrong and is equated to murder. This text refers to anaccidential injury, while abortion is purposeful destruction of innocent human life inthe womb. The Torah doesn't issue the death penalty for accidental death normally.The text doesn't even dehumanize the unborn, but outlines punishments for a crime.From the Bible, God knew the plan of Jeremiah before being formed in the belly ofthe womb.
God hates the shedding of innocent blood. (as found in Exodus 23:7,Proverbs 6:16-19, Isaiah 5:20-21).
To abort a baby is to kill an innocent. Abortion isthe epitome of shedding innocent blood and murdering human beings. The Law ofMoses says clearly: "...Thou shalt not Kill..."
