It isn't mentioned in the Bible, but the principles are that murder is a totally unacceptable means of settling problems. It should be settled by the law but the law is lacking when it comes to unborn children. In Texas there is nothing to stop one from having an abortion in the second trimester. I think it is at the least very inhumane.
