Beyond Today Magazine

May—June 2021

For the last year the world has dealt with the scourge of Covid-19, a disease that has dominated the headlines as well as our individual lives. Yet a far deadlier plague infects our world, exacting a far greater death toll and ruining far more lives. That plague is abortion—the deliberate killing of the unborn in some the most horrifying ways imaginable. How does God—the giver of life—view this taking of the most innocent of life? How does abortion affect those who have one? You need to understand the biblical perspective on these important questions, and you’ll find answers in the pages of this issue of Beyond Today.
