tough stuff. but the OT is just as much a part of the bible as the NT is.<quoted text>
Show how that scripture you're speaking of even applies to abortion first. Even on the rare chance that it does, Old Testament scriptures, or laws do not apply to Christian beliefs.
I don't like to even bring religion into the abortion argument, because it is very subjective in it's interpretations.
Jesus dId NOT abolish the old law aka the OT. in fact he said he came ti FULFILL it. as in Matt 5:17-18
 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
this is the SAME phrasing in both the KJV and the Douay-Rheims bible.
as well as this:
 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
meaning if you do NOT live according to the OT as well as the NT. according to Jesus and the Bible. no hope for ya......
