Ensign, November 1998, pg. 71; “Abortion is an ugly thing, a debasing thing, a thing which inevitably brings remorse and sorrow and regret…While we denounce it, we make allowance in such circumstances as when pregnancy is the result of incest or rape, when the life or health of the mother is judged by competent medical authority to be in serious jeopardy, or when the fetus is known by competent medical authority to have serious defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth.” – Gordon Hinckley
Genesis 9:6; “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.”
So is abortion okay or is it not? When people write or call in defending the Church to tell me the Christians should work alongside the Mormons on moral issues I always share this example with them.
