Transform Your Church
Is abortion a divisive issue in your church?
It doesn’t have to be!
Abortion needn’t be a divisive issue in your church. New evidence reveals that most (not all) abortions are unwanted or coerced. Some are forced. Many among us are still at risk or already hurt. Share new evidence with your church leaders. Ask your pastor to preach about this issue. Open doors to help, unity, hope and restoration.
Discussions about abortion are often strident and polarizing. Some pastors find preaching on abortion difficult because they fear angering or dividing their congregations. Others avoid the issue because they believe it is mostly a political concern. Pro-lifers are often frustrated at the perceived lack of leadership on this issue, and concerned that silence can leave those facing crisis pregnancies more vulnerable to abortion, especially coerced and unwanted abortions.
Women, men and families who have been directly or indirectly involved in abortion often feel unable to speak about it, expecting either dismissal or condemnation from others. They may have been hurt by thoughtless remarks or media rhetoric that only added to their pain. As a result, many sit in the pews feeling silenced and alone — or end up leaving the church altogether.
It doesn’t have to be this way!
