Abortion and Thou Shalt Not Kill

In the original Hebrew papyrus texts that became Exodus 20:13 and Deuteronomy 5:17, the bible says, “You shall not murder.”

“ Thou shalt not kill” is the Old Testament Greek translation of “You shall not murder” from the Hebrew texts. “Thou shalt not kill” can in no way, shape, or form be linked to abortion. Yet Christians cherrypick this passage and deliberately misrepresent the true meaning to propagandize the “abortion is murder” fantasy.

The Hebrew word for murder used in the Ten Commandments is "lo tir a." The Hebrew verb is also transliterated as retzach or ratzákh. Ratsakh means destructive activity: "to break, to dash to pieces." It also means "to slay, kill, or murder".

The context of “Retzach” means to kill a person outside of war, such as murdering an unarmed person. So, for example, retzach means to murder a neighbor over a dispute or kill a Sheppard to steal his sheep. You cannot stretch the imagination enough to apply retzach to abortion. "Thou shalt not kill" cannot be linked to a fetus or "unborn baby." It simply DOES NOT translate.

Moreover, abortifacients were commonly used before, during, and after the original manuscripts that became the Torah were written. Abortifacients were also commonly used before, during, and after the original manuscripts of the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Mifepristone is an abortifacient. The Hebrew Bible clearly defines when a person could be put to death for a crime: murder, incest, perjury in a capital murder trial, adultery, idolatry, bestiality, child sacrifice to pagan gods, cursing a parent, fortune-telling, and homosexuality. This is a somewhat detailed list. Physicians in every Mesopotamian city-state prescribed abortifacients. So why was abortion not mentioned?

Abortifacients were commonly used. “Retzach” cannot and does not translate to mean an abortion.
