WELS Position Statement on Abortion:

…The Holy Scriptures clearly teach that the living yet unborn are persons in the sight of God
and are under the protection of His Commandment against murder;
Ex 20:13; Ps 51:5; Ps 139:13; Jer 1:15; Luke 1:41-44…

For you created my inmost being:
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the
earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in
your book,
before one of them came to be.

Ps 139: 13-16
