Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Nazi foe, on abortion

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who spoke out against the Nazis and was executed by Hitler:

“Destruction of the embryo in the mother’s womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately  deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Ethics, 175 – 176
