Book Summary of Abortion by R.C. Sproul


Abortion on demand, legalized over fifty years ago, continues to divide the American people. Labyrinthian theological, ethical, and legal issues arise in the course of the debate. Answering difficult questions requires a well-thought-out and compassionate response.

Heated rhetoric and blatant slogans do nothing to move the discourse forward. In today’s fragmented society, we need clear and concise answers that deal with the sanctity of life, when life begins, and the civil government’s proper role regarding abortion. “There is widespread disagreement about whether abortion on demand is right or wrong, but it cannot be both.” (p. xxi)

Abortion entangles many societal ills and remains deeply divisive as calls to autonomy and women’s rights undergird its acceptance. Scripture, civil law, and natural law contend that abortion is the unjust taking of innocent life. The sanctity of human life begins before the womb with the God who knew us before conception. 

Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue addresses these concerns and lays out a compassionate response to those who have had or are considering an abortion and gives a firm, clear call for a renewed respect for the unborn.
