Many Christians are staunch anti-abortionists because, well, God just loves little children. After all, the bible says a lot of stuff about how god made us, like Isaiah 44:24:
“This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself.”

So apparently god’s a little artsy-craftsy and his hobby (when he isn’t stretching out the heavens and spreading the earth all by himself) is forming little fetuses in women’s wombs. So there you have it. God loves little babies and it is a dire sin to have an abortion and destroy his handiwork.
What amazes me about all the Christian pro-life movement is the complete denial of the countless babies and pregnant women that god has smote over the centuries as recorded in their bible. First of all he wiped out the entire human race except for Noah, Mrs. Noah and their six sons and daughters-in-law. Drowned them all like unwanted kittens. He clearly didn’t give a rat’s ass about those babies, even though as an all-powerful being he could have easily found a less heinous solution.
And let’s not forget about the tenth plague which was the death of the firstborn of Egypt in Exodus 11:4-6:
"Thus says the LORD: About midnight I will go forth in the midst of Egypt; and all the first-born in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sits upon his throne, even to the first-born of the maidservant who is behind the mill; and all the first-born of the cattle. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has never been, nor ever shall be again.“
He (God) clearly didn’t give a rat’s ass about those babies, even though as an all-powerful being he could have easily found a less heinous solution.It sounds like he is sort of proud of this plague, doesn’t it? The really sick thing is that god admittedly hardened Pharaoh's heart so he wouldn’t let the Hebrew people go and ruin all god’s fun. So this is another example of god killing babies, and, I am assuming, unborn babies as well. Wow! What an awesome god they serve. Not!
1 Samuel 15:3 god says,
“Now go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him; but put to death both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.”
Again god has absolutely no regard for the sanctity of human life—not even infants. How can Christians cite god as a source for being pro-life? Clearly they haven’t read their own bibles.
My personal favorite Bizarro bible scripture is Psalms 137:9,
“ Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.”
Eeeewww! This is supposed to be inspired by a loving, perfect, just god? I think not. There are just too many inconsistencies in the bible to take the book seriously. If it doesn’t fit you must just quit (Sorry Johnnie for the paraphrase). So the next time you want to mess with a Christian's mind, ask them to explain why a god who is so against abortions can so callously and easily kill millions of babies without a blink of his celestial eye? God made them in their mother’s wombs so he could have a little fun and kill them shortly thereafter? And we wicked humans are supposed to be the sinners who need saving by him?
