Equipping the Church on Abortion

Posted February 21 Mark Snee

I don't know of a more heated subject that brings about more enraged feelings than the word abortion. Research shows nearly one in four women will have at least one abortion in their lifetime.[1] That number includes women in our churches. Abortion is not an issue to be ignored in hopes that it will go away. In fact, God's Word tells us to "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Ensure justice for those being crushed" (Proverbs 31:8).

One in four women is a staggering statistic! In this video from February 17, 2019, you will watch a small panel of members of our church and community tackle some of the hardest points to discuss about abortion and those affected by it. We seek to equip the church to be ready to defend the defenseless as well as answer the following questions:

  1. What is the unborn?
  2. Are they actually human beings who deserve the same protection afforded to all born human beings under our Constitution?
  3. What should the Christian's response be toward this devastating and convenient way of "erasing" the mistake of an unwanted child?
