Our Call to the Presbyterian Church

We call the Church to renew its historic and biblical stance of opposition to the destruction of innocent human life through abortion. We call the Church to renew its commitment to preserve and nurture life at every stage of development, from conception to natural death.

We call the Church to cease its approval of abortion; to withdraw funding of abortion and abortion advocacy; to remove the unlimited coverage of abortion from the Presbyterian Medical Plan; to discontinue participation in and support for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

We call the Church to support women in problem pregnancies in sacrificially compassionate and loving ways that allow both mother and child to live and be blessed by God. We call the Church to provide tangible help and a community of belonging for women and children in need. We call the Church to support and promote adoption and the many community pregnancy care ministries that provide alternatives to abortion.

We call the Church to hold up high standards of morality for the children in our congregations, and to nurture and support family life.

We call the Church to extend the means of grace to those involved in abortion, to lead them gently to repentance and to aid their full restoration of fellowship with their heavenly Father and with the body of Christ, the Church.

DavidDaleidenIn a outrageous act of injustice, David Daleiden has been indicted in the purchase or sale of human organs while Planned Parenthood remains free of charges. Daleiden is 27 year old investigative reporter who exposed Planned Parenthood's involvement in selling body parts of aborted babies through a series of undercover investigative videos. The videos capture conversations with high level Planned Parenthood employees discussing how they harvest organs from aborted babies, changing abortion procedures at times to obtain better specimens, and discussing prices.

Pastor, your congregation wants you to talk about abortion! Print E-mail

MFLpers camera 019webA recent study shows that abortion tops the list of issues conservative Christians want to hear about more often from the pulpit—bioethical issues too!

"Spiritually active Christians who hold politically conservative views believe that churches should be more involved in the political process. In particular, they are eager for their pastors to teach them what the Bible says about today's social and political issues."

In the report, "God's People Want to Know", the American Culture & Faith Institute of Woodside, California reveals data from a research study of mostly conservative Christians directed by George Barna. The study conducted in July and August of 2015 shows that 67% want to receive more information from their church about what the Bible teaches on social and political issues. Abortion tops the list!

Abortion: Christian Doctrine and Public Policy Print E-mail
Written by Richard John Neuhaus   

MFLphone photos 329web"The question is what, on the basis of the Word of God, does the Church believe, and what are the moral implications of that belief." ---Richard John Neuhaus

The difficulty the churches experience in addressing the abortion question is intensified by a confusion with secular politics. That is to say,we implicitly assume that decision-making in the Church should imitate the pattern of compromise and accommodation in the democratic political arena. The Church should concentrate on what it must say theologically and morally and, only when it is reasonably clear about that, move on to the question of what that might mean for Christian responsibility in the political arena

Life Support Prayer Ministry of PPL Print E-mail

Prayer-graphic March16sqPrayer should be our first and best effort in the fight for life.

It is to our shame that many of us do not connect abortion and prayer. For us who are so outraged by the church's position on abortion, we are prone to jump into a proactive mode that either kicks us into the high gear of politics, preaching, and picketing; or knocks us into the depths of despair, depression, and defeat. We need to hear the words of our Lord as he taught the disciples:

"Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up." And then he tells the parable of the persistent widow who was seeking justice from an unjust judge, and because of her constant plea, she was given justice. And Jesus applied the teaching, "And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly." (Luke 18:1-8)

Let us be persistent in prayer for this fight for life in the church. Please join PPL in this prayer effort. We believe our crying to God will bring about God's intervention all to His glory and honor.
