Will God Forgive Me For My Abortion?

It’s easy to think that you’ve done something so terrible that God would never forgive you. After all, abortion is murder, and what sins are graver than murder. Does God forgive murderers?

Good news. Yes, he does!

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9

You see, the good news is that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). There is nothing so grave that we can do as sinners, that we can’t repent and turn to Jesus Christ for his love, mercy, and grace.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:1

God didn’t send his son to die on the cross to save righteous people. He came to save sinners (Mark 2:17). And yet, the Bible says there is nobody righteous–not even one (Romans 3:10). There is nothing you can do to earn a righteous place with God, but at the same time, there is nothing you can do to out-sin God’s grace and mercy. Without Christ, your “good works” are like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). Yet his death, burial, and resurrection was completely sufficient to cover all of your sins, including abortion.

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. -Psalm 103:12

And he will never stay angry with you if you repent and believe in Jesus Christ for your forgiveness.

Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity. And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. – Micah 7:18

If you want to receive God’s mercy, let go of your sin, and trust Jesus. For a presentation of the Gospel, click here.
