Bible Quotes: AS OCR Religious Studies

This is basically a load of bible quotes which can be used for the issues (abortion, genetic engineering, IVF/right to a child, euthanasia and war and peace) in the AS OCR ethics (religious studies) exam. They can also be used for other religious exams, but I focused on ethics. Not all of them are there but it took me ages to find relevant ones in the bible, so I hope they help :)
