Psalms 137:9 reads "Happy he shall be that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Numbers 31:17-18 "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Let the Bible speak for itself.

Edited to add second verse

The Bible and its followers genuinely confuse me. I had to copy a lot of pages as a child [small Catholic school in the 90s, me with ADHD, nuns needing to punish] and had a good grasp on the material from a young age. So the first time someone told me abortion was about killing babies and against God's will my immediate response was a confused "I mean, not really? The Christian god kills a ton of children, babies, and pregnant people in the Bible." He specifically targeted them at multiple points!

But then I hear "well, when Jesus died it made a new convenant".

Okay, neat. Then why are you quoting Leviticus?

[Also the Bible was quite clearly written by multiple sources, translated and edited multiple times, and is kind of obviously drawing from shared myths and legends of the various regions that have been attributed to multiple deities] ["a great flood" oh gee, never heard that one before]

All you need to mention is God killing the first born of every egyptian and you can see how much he cares about children.
