Against (RC and Evangelical): Life starts at conception, foetus made in God's image and is alive 10 commandments Catechism - 'horrible crime - violation of child's rights' God has plan for everyone - shouldn't interfere if because of disability - goes against all living disabled Double effect - if one has to die, save mother - intent wasn't to kill baby

Wrong but circumstantial (C of E): if it's the most loving thing to do Life isn't at conception Sanctity of life is broken during war, why not in abortion

Against but lesser of two evils (methodist): Jesus treated with love - must do same Free will Medical advances detect disabilities to prevent suffering Christianity is based on justice - backstreet abortions if law changes - people would suffer more
