This is as far as i got……
Every religion has human values and some controversy against bioethical issues, such as abortion. In the Christian faith, abortion is an ethical issue. â€œScripture clearly expresses the sanctity of human life. In Exodus 20:13, When God gave his people the absolutes of spiritual and moral living, he commanded, â€œYou shall not murderâ€ (ESV)â€ (Fairchild, 2018). The Bible fully supports the idea that abortion involves taking the life of a human being who was made in the image of God. In my opinion, abortion is very complex issue for woman, because she has to make the right decision for the motherâ€™s health, and future health complications of the newborn. Reading the scripture, I want abortion to be a black and white issue, but I donâ€™t feel it is. I do believe abortion is a sin, but God treats it like every other sin. When we repent and confess, our loving Father forgives our sins. In the case study discussed, there is a situation in which a fetus develops a rare condition that would result in deformity that would forever impact its quality of life. The characters discussed all have different beliefs that make the final plan of action difficult.
Christian View of Humanity
The Christian World View claims that humans are created in the image of God, and therefore we are worthy. This is compatible with the theory based on human properties. One has only to be human to have full moral status.
