The Almighty does not instruct us to be anti-abortionists. The Bible indicates a contrary position, specifically Exodus XXI (RSV): "22. When men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that there is a miscarriage, and yet no harm follows, the one who hurt her shall be fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. "23. If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, "24. eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, "25. burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe." That means the death penalty for killing a pregnant woman during a riot, but only a fine if one kills a fetus. The life of a fetus is not human life, according to the Bible.
