An aide of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General-overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Johnson Odesola says that as Christians, abortion is not allowed, regardless of the circumstances which may warrant it.
Odesola, the Special Assistant on Personnel and Administration to Pastor Adeboye, made the comments at the monthly prayer and thanksgiving service organised for pregnant women at the RCCG, National Headquarters, Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos.
The monthly programme tagged, ‘Shout of Joy’, was a convergence of thousands of pregnant women.
He said, “You can prevent pregnancy but once the egg and the sperm meet and is formed, anything that suggests that it should be terminated is against God’s word. The option of abortion is an option preferred by medical professionals but as Christians, we believe in miracles and that God is able to take away every problems.”
Speaking further, he advised that even in a situation where the life of the woman is at risk, abortion is still not an option.
“There is nothing God cannot do even if the life of the woman is at stake; pray for a divine intervention and God who created the universe knows what to do in any situation we find ourselves as we look up to him in faith,” he added.
