God Gives Life and He Can Take it Away

I neither agree nor disagree with this statement, for I believe that
it has relevance in only certain circumstances.

I can understand why many Christians would think this statement as
true as many biblical passages show this. I also think that it is a
fundamental belief of Christianity to believe that, "God gave life".
There are many passages in the Bible that say this, like in Genesis 1:
27, 28 andGenesis 2: 7:

"So god created man in his own image, in the image of god he created
him; male and female he created them. And God said to them, ""have
dominion over every living thing that moves upon the earth.""

And-

"Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a
living being"

Some Christian churches do believe that only, God has the right to
take life away. They may think that under very special circumstances
it is allowed to take away life, to permit abortion.

All Christians believe that life is sacred and every attempt should be
made to try and protect it. However some Christian denominations
(except The Roman Catholic Church) agree that within certain
circumstances it is all right to abort (or terminate) the foetus.

I agree with abortion being carried out, but only within certain, very
serious circumstances. I think that the worst possible way in which
abortion can be used is when it is used as a form of contraception. If
this is done repeatedly it can destroy the possibility of ever having
children in the future and moreover would be risking the life of the
woman. I also disagree with the concept of abortion, because even
though I am not Christian I regard life as a very important, probably
the most important gift that God can give to human beings.

I believe that abortions should only be carried out only before the
first 25 weeks. Unless there is severe deformity that is detected or
that the mother's life is in danger. Beyond this time the foetus is
said to feel pain and certain other emotions. An abortion beyond this
time, I believe is immoral and should be avoided. The argument against
the set amount of time allowed for an abortion would be "when does
life begin?" This is because we define life as "the period between
birth and death". Some people see birth as beginning at the actual
