From his Commentary on the Last Four Books of Moses:

For the fetus, though enclosed in the womb of its mother, is already a human being, and it is almost a monstrous crime to rob it of the life which it has not yet begun to enjoy. If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own house than in a field, because a man’s house is his place of most secure refuge, it ought surely to be deemed more atrocious to destroy a fetus in the womb before it has come to light.

Speaking of Calvin, I’m going to post a bit on his life sometime next week (hopefully).  Most people know a lot about what Calvin taught, but few actually know about his life.  I’m one of those people so I’m excited to learn a bit more with you.  A lot of people mistakenly have called Calvin a cold, mean-spirited man who hated non-Christians.  The exact opposite is actually true.  He intensely loved the world and wanted everyone to know about the saving grace Jesus offers.  Hopefully the coming post will dispel some of those false stories.

    1. uum… stories, quit listening to the people that hate his doctrine and so try to discredit his life. He was not responsible for this. Do some research Rev and while you’re at it, get a life yourself.
