The real truth is you cannot convince her.
only the conviction of the Holy Spirit will save this baby.
Tell her the truth she is killing a baby. pray for her and with her try to show her the sin that created this life is not a choice its a baby and she must now live with the reality of that sin and it is not the babys fault, and if she chooses to kill the baby she will sadly, have to live with that for the rest of her life. I know too many women have to live with that knowledge. and live in agony of their souls.
Abortion kill babies and women every day.

Abortion is murder. God said, "Thou shalt not kill." Jesus Christ said, "But whosoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." Matthew 18:6 Jesus said also, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me: for of such is the kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 19:14 Jesus told us to love our enemies, bless them that curse us & do good to those that hate us & pray for them (Matt. 5:44). He taught us not to hit our enemies when they hit us (Matt.5:39. Unborn babies never did anything to hurt anyone-would we treat them worse than how we are to treat our enemies?

Take the abortion quiz here on ChristiaNet and possibly show your sister what the Bible says.

I think that she has enough stress on her as it is, and that you should let her live her life.
You don't give us any details on this question. Why is she having an abortion? Was she raped? Was she raped by a family member? Why is she thinking of abortion?
While I don't advocate punishing a child for what a rapist did, I would like to know more details regarding this query.

Excuse me...but how can anything not be of God? Did God not create sin, to create the very existence of no sin? If your sister wants an abortion you have no say in the matter. Do not make her feel guiltier by saying an abortion is not of God! Abortions are neither bad nor good. If somebody wants an abortion let the person have the abortion! Do not manipulate their lives by saying what is Godly and what is not Godly! If your sister does not want a child than maybe you should consider your sister's life instead of the unborn child's life, that has not even lived yet! How can you take away life that has not lived? I tell you this: If that child is not born by your sister, it will be born by another. Allow your sister to do as she wishes.

God says He formed us in the womb. If He formed us, we are His people. The moment that spark of life exists, that baby is a human precious in the sight of God.

Ask her if she has picked out a name for the baby yet. It is much harder to kill something that you have named than something you haven't.

Why? How old is your sister?Where are the parents and what do they think of this? Where is the father of this unborn child?So many unanswered question in your post.
Does she know that abortion is not only murder but it can be fatal to her as well. Abortion is a surgical and dangerous procedure. There are so many risks involved. Does your sister understand all of this? If not, she needs to speak to a counselor, or someone who can make her understand these facts.
Abortion is not birth control. Abortion is wrong and against the ordinance of God. The act iself may be worse than having the baby.
This is a very difficult position for your sister to be in. God bless her and you,too.

Most of all, she needs to know that God would be glad to honor her and support her. And you can show her how you care for her and love her and her child and desire to share with her in having her baby. This would be the main thing > to encourage her with what is *right*, not to just show her what and who is wrong.
However > ones who threaten not to support her are in fact *anti*-choice. If ones hold their friendship "hostage", in order to coerce her, this is psychological terrorism, plus anti-*love* > she can discover real love with her child >
With Jesus, she can learn how to love with her child > "learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (in Matthew 11:29)

To a woman, the baby is PART OF HER BODY that will be forever (for a lifetime) "IN HER IMAGE". Therefore, when a woman chooses to "destroy" that "forever self image", a VERY serious decision is being made for the rest of her life (look up "psychological effects of abortion" online).
So, of course God doesn't want abortion to happen, but God doesn't want us to "LIVE FOR Him" (we can choose the OPTION to LOVE HIM), He wants us to make just and wise decisions that will be good for us so that we can have a happy life.
Giving the baby up for adoption would be the best idea because your sister is definitely not ready to be a parent at her age.

Ask her how it was that her baby was formed inside of her. Then read to her Psalm 139:13-16 and explain to her that there's no accidents with God. That it's his work, not some magic biological cocktail that creates children.
Ask her what her face looked like BEFORE he parents were born, and explain to her that God knew and loved her even then!

Is she a Christian? If not, then pray for her salvation, and for the Holy Spirit to convict her.
