Nigerian Pastor criticized for saying you can abort a child conceived in rape

According to several reports, ChrisOyakh Chris Oyakhilome, who is pastor of the multinational Christ Embassy International Church in Lagos, Nigeria, believes that it would be unfair for a woman who had been raped and became pregnant to then be forced to carry that unborn child to term. He also believes that there is nothing against what he suggests in the Bible and therefore would not be going against the law of God.

Apparently, during a question and answer session this month about Biblical principles at his church, Oyakhilome said that the Bible does not mention anything about it being compulsory for a woman who is forced into intercourse to continue to have that child. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome posted the message above on his Facebook page on Sunday, March, 2014.

The senior pastor of Christ Embassy answering the question ‘Can a baby that is a product of rape be aborted?’ said the decision is left for the woman to make.
