In Jeremiah 1:5, God says, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified you; and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” This verse is among the most frequently quoted Bible passages used to support the anti-abortionist misinformation campaign that the Bible condemns the practice. This misinformation is created through deception … by cherry-picking this bible passage and then interpreting it completely out of context in which it was written. In simple terms, Jeremiah 1:5 does not provide any reasonable grounds for the anti-abortion argument. Jeremiah 1:5 does not have anything to do with abortion at all.

To interpret Jeremiah 1:5 as applicable to anyone but Jeremiah, You’d have to believe that before your birth:

  • God singled you out,
  • Designated you as a "prophet to the nations,"
  • And destined you to write a new book of the Bible.

These facts align with the realistic context of Jeremiah 1:1-8. Jeremiah preached to the nations and wrote a new book of the bible.

Are you?

The anti-abortion misinformation campaign in Jeremiah 1:5 is deliberately distorted, cherry-picked misinformation. Jeremiah penned his own narrative, explicitly expressing that God had set him apart. This distinctiveness meant that Jeremiah was unlike anyone else in every conceivable way; he stood out. It takes a colossal leap of logic to conclude that Jeremiah said that God knew and chose him from the womb; therefore, God is opposed to terminating an unwanted pregnancy. There simply are no dots to connect the two. Unless you are writing a new chapter in the bible, perhaps there's a reason to reconsider your interpretation of Jeremiah 1:5.

There is no explicit or implied connection, not even a tenuous link to Jeremiah 1:1-8 and abortion. Hence, any self-flattering interpretation attempting to bridge the two is fundamentally flawed. Read Jeremiah 1:1-8 for yourself.
