                                                                          1. In Genesis God said " humans rule over the fish in the sea, the birds of the air..."

                                                                          2. Abortion

                                                                                    2. Sometimes there is a genuine reason why abortion must be done

                                                                                        1. Jesus would have shown sympathy and would have been forgiving as he greatly admired women

                                                                                          1. Most Christians would disagree as it is playing God
                                                                                            1. Against God's original plan - not natural
                                                                                              1. "Hannah had no children for God had closed her womb"

                                                                                                  1. Can be the most loving thing to do to give a couple a child.
