Pastor and author Tony Evans is encouraging Christians to embrace a "womb to the tomb" agenda in light of the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, saying the body of Christ must "come alongside" women with "spiritual and tangible support."
American evangelical leaders rejoiced Friday over the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Mississippi, which overturned Roe v. Wade. Many took to social media to recognize the work of those who labored in the pro-life movement over the last fifty years. They also brought attention to the work that needs to be done now that the issue has gone back to the states and called on Christians to serve vulnerable mothers and families. Here is what nine evangelical leaders had to say about the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
With patient instruction, moral courage, generous hearts, care for women in crisis, and a little political resolve, the worst effects of Roe can be mitigated and the lives of many unborn Americans can be saved.
