Why is the Bible pro-choice?

A pregnant woman who is injured and aborts the fetus warrants financial compensation only (to her husband), suggesting that the fetus is property, not a person (Exodus 21:22-25). 

The gruesome priestly purity test to which a wife accused of adultery must submit will cause her to abort the fetus if she is guilty, indicating that the fetus does not possess a right to life (Numbers 5:11-31).

God enumerated his punishments for disobedience, including "cursed shall be the fruit of your womb" and "you will eat the fruit of your womb," directly contradicting sanctity-of-life claims (Deuteronomy 28:18,53).

For rebelling against God, Samaria's people will be killed, their babies will be dashed to death against the ground, and their pregnant women will be ripped open with a sword (Hosea 13:16).

Jesus did not express any special concern for unborn children during the anticipated end times: "Woe to pregnant women and those who are nursing" (Matthew 24:19).

    It isn't pro-choice, pard.  It is against abortion, as the fines or death penalty inflicted on the fighters show.

    Pro choice is about giving the choice to the pregnant woman to decide for her own body.

    In all of these things you wrote, things are done to the woman without her choice. She isn't given body autonomy.

    But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.

    Sounds like if the baby in the womb dies, the person that caused it will die too.

    In numbers it does not say the woman is pregnant due during the ritual. It does say that if she is found guilty she wouldn’t be able to conceive.

    Hosea and Deuteronomy are speaking about prophecies.

    Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
