In old testament scripture, the loss or caused miscarriage of a woman's unborn was not regarded as murder, nor ever was throughout the history of the Jews. 

Surely one of the prophets who decried the sin of God's people would have made some objections regarding this issue.  God who knows the end from the beginning did not make it an issue of murder for thousands of years.

i am not saying i am pro abortion, but this painful step ought not to be burdened with the onus of murder. Millions upon millions more conceptions and fetuses have been naturally miscarried, so then does God himself become guilty of murder?

Those who are most anti abortion seem to be most pro war.  So these abortions may have served to amass armies becoming fodder for the battle field, and this is preferred?

There's a very interesting article in the September Adventist Review. Its called "His Mercy Made Me Whole." Which is about abortion, which actually made me think even more about this situation. I think that there is a very fine line here, from this article I can see how easy it is for someone to be tricked into this by a total bastard like this pastor in the story!!
