Contrary to Schwab column, the unborn are discussed in Bible

Sid Schwab in his May 5 column (“Trump’s abortion lies frustrate already fraught debate”) on abortion and he accused President Trump of lying about this greatly debated topic.

Schwab stated twice that the Bible is silent on abortion, but thankfully that is not true.

For those who believe God’s word and use it to determine what is right and what is wrong, I suggest that they check three scriptures. Jeremiah 1:5 says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” In Psalm 139:13 King David speaks to God saying “For you created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Matthew 19:17,18 quotes Jesus himself answering the question about how we can have eternal life saying “Obey the commandments” and He gave “Do not murder” as an example.

Thanks for letting me set the record straight.
