Warning! Confessing Movement Petition On Abortion May Be Hazardous To Children
If you are concerned for the lives of children yet to be born and if you believe that every life is a gift form God of sacred worth, then be aware! The Confessing Movement within the Methodist church has recommended a petition to General Conference that suggest that rape and incest may seem to justify abortion and these abortions are "In continuity with past Christian teaching." To assert that rape and incest are justifiable reasons to abort a child and that this is in continuity with past Christian teaching is simply untrue!
Confessing Movement Petition # 18 Regarding the Social Principles Statement on Abortion
Psalms 139:13-14, "For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful. Wonderful are thy works!", is in continuity with past Christian teaching. The circumstances surrounding our conception, regardless of how tragic they may be, has nothing to do with the fact that God has made us. We have no right to "unknit" God's wonderful works!
I suggest that everyone:
We should not support petitions that comprise the Truth!
