God Destroys Fetuses?

God destroys the fetuses of those who do not worship him.

This is not the only feticidal passage in the bible, but it is the worst:

"You shall acknowledge no God but me. . . . You are destroyed, Israel. . . . The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open." (Hosea 13:4, 9, 16 New International Version)

    That's not God doing the destroying. That is a prophetic warning from God, to His people who had covenanted to worship only Him, that because of spiritual harlotry, a vicious nation would arise to destroy them by the sword. The soldiers of that cruel nation would dash their children to the ground and rip their pregnant women open. 

    God's own people had followed the ways of the pagans and even sacrificed their own children to Baal at Topheth in the valley of Ben Hinnom.

    Even so, God also foretold judgment on the destroyers still to come. "But all who devour you will be devoured; all your enemies will go into exile. Those who plundered you will be plundered; all who make spoil of you I will despoil. But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds' declares the Lord, 'because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no-one cares."
