A Christian's Response to Abortion



"The typical Christian response [to abortion] is that our sins have been (1) lack of political involvement and (2) lack of acceptance for unwed mothers. This is not correct. We are not all called to be lobbyists or politicians any more than we are all called to be preachers. Nor do we owe it to every unwed mother to provide her with money, a home, a day-care center, and a job (to say nothing of pushing her into this feminist careerist lifestyle). Mercy? Yes, for repentant sinners. Compassion? Yes, for those who ask for help. We do need to repent of our sins before God; but political naivete and a strong stand against fornication are not sins. Nor have they caused abortions."
