Suzy, you raise a valid point. The Bible does indeed prohibit eating pork, as well as other animal flesh, as recorded. There is one thing that a lot of people sometimes don't catch.
What I mean is the context of the passage. Who is speaking? Who is listening? What is the topic and why is this topic being addressed? When was this topic addressed? As you can see, there are a lot of variables to consider.
In this case, God is speaking to the nation of Israel, as they're in the wilderness or desert, between Egypt and what was called Canaan in those days. God gave these dietary laws and other laws to Israel in order to keep them a pure and holy nation. God wanted them to be different than the other nations. So this was mandatory and binding upon the nation of Israel as part of the Law of Moses.
Now, after reading Leviticus, turn to the Book of Acts, chapters 9 and following. Peter has a dream where he sees all kinds of animals, clean and unclean according to the Law, and hears, three times, a voice saying that nobody should call something "unclean" what God made clean. Besides, Jesus Himself said that it wasn't what you ate that made you unclean but what you did.
In summary, unless you are a member of the nation of Israel, living under the Law of Moses, and--by the way--keeping ALL of the Law, then the Leviticus passage doesn't apply to you. If you don't want to eat ham, pork, bacon, sausage, pepperoni, or any other meat from swine, then don't eat it. Nobody will fault you. It's just that Christians are not, repeat NOT, under the Law of Moses. We should be following the Law of Christ which is to love God and your neigbor.
