Dear Myss Lafunky,
'I think I already know what your view would be, and you don't change your opinion on your view.
So, what do you think about abortion? Is it right or wrong? and why?
I think being a parent or potential parent brings a lot of responsibility.
What's your view about abortion? What does the Bible say about abortion?'
I have already provided an answer below and the individual is aware of the below response. However, I would like you all to shed some lights, I don't think I have sufficiently answered the above questions. I am open to learn.

To decide that one cannot look after a baby, it needs to be examined critically.
Medically, emotionally and spiritually, abortion has negative impacts, the guilt of killing a baby is likely to impact on one's emotion for life, what if something goes wrong with the ladies womb?, etc.
The Bible says that, before He formed us in our mother's womb, He knew us, while we were still in our mother's womb, He also knew us. There are people in the Bible that God spoke to the parents about the children that they will conceive and God told them about the purpose for the children's lives (e.g. Samson, John the Baptist, etc).
God also discouraged us from killing the innocent. The Bible says that cursed be to anyone who shed innocent blood.
Nonetheless, the decision is up to the parents or the parents to be. The decision may be more difficult if the baby was conceived through rape. However, some women still continue with the pregnancy and they give the baby for adoption.
