Both Joe Carter and Al Mohler are wrong. If abortion is criminalized, then those who have any part in the premeditated murder of an unborn child should be punished accordingly. This included abortionists, nurses, receptionists, mothers, and fathers–and anyone else who either performs, provides, participates in, or encourages the premeditated murder of an unborn child.
What nonsense to suggest abortion should be criminalized, but there should be no punishment for the mothers who commit the crime.
The idea that women who have abortions are victims is one reason why the so-called “pro-life” movement is utterly impotent.
To women who have aborted their children: yes, you are a murderer. And, at the moment, the wrath of God abides on you. BUT, you can receive forgiveness for your grievous sin. However, you MUST come to God on His terms. You MUST repent and believe the gospel.
