A coalition of pro-life doctors and organizations filed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit in federal court last week, charging that the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the abortion pill violated federal policy and placed the lives of women at risk.
The fight for life is shifting into a new season in which every community is on the front lines. This means you and I are on the front lines as well. We need to make the logical case for life wherever we can. We need to support ministries that support pregnant women considering abortion. And we need to pray daily for a spiritual awakening that would expose the darkness of deception to the light of truth.
A week of major Election Day losses for the pro-life community was capped Thursday with one more defeat: Montana voters rejected a measure that would have required medical care for infants who survive abortion, according to a call by the Associated Press.
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.
