One of the seven things which Jehovah emphatically states that He hates, yea He abominates, is “hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:16-17). Psalm 106 provides a crystal-clear commentary on this heinous, abhorrent act. It conclusively demonstrates that the practice of infanticide—regardless of whether it be prior to or after a child’s birth—is abominated by the Holy One of Israel.
It is written: “They served their idols which became a snare to them. They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. Thus, they were defiled by their own works and played the harlot by their own deeds” (Psalm 106:26-39).
When the blood (i.e. the innocent blood) of sons and daughters is shed, it is done out by idolators who pollute the land and defile themselves. Abortion is the sacrament of the modern god called Self and the goddess called Feminism. It is a moral pollutant and severe spiritual stain that defiles. It kindles the wrath of God and provokes His abhorrence (Psalm 106:40).
What a horrific blight is the shedding of innocent blood.
