The issue of abortion and the fight for life has been at the center of our national discourse for years, particularly after Roe v. Wade made abortion legal in 1973. Since then, pro-life advocates, many of whom are Christians, have been speaking out in defense of life. There is no doubt that many Christian leaders believe valuing life from conception is a core principle of Christianity.
Many in the Christian community have been encouraged by the progress made in the pro-life movement in the last few months. Many states have tightened restrictions on abortion and put laws in place that protect life. Ultimately, these Christian leaders believe that life should be protected as a gift from God. Here is what ten Christian leaders had to say on abortion and the issues pertaining to preserving life.
