|Our Call to the Presbyterian Church (USA)|
We call the PC(USA) to return to its historic and biblical stance of opposition to the destruction of innocent human life through abortion. We call the PC(USA) to renew its commitment to preserve and nurture life at every stage of development, from fertilization to natural death.
We call the PC(USA) to cease its approval of abortion; to withdraw funding of abortion and abortion advocacy; to remove the unlimited coverage of abortion from the PC(USA) Board of Pensions Medical Benefits Plan; to discontinue participation in and support for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and to cease advocating for acceptance of abortion through the mission work of the church.
We call the PC(USA) 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, and we ask that the PC(USA) cease offering abortion as an acceptable option for families in crisis. We call the PC(USA) to provide tangible help and a community of belonging for women and children in need We call the PC(USA) to support and promote adoption and the many community pregnancy care ministries that provide alternatives to abortion.
We call the PC(USA) to hold up high standards of biblical sexual morality for the children in our congregations, and to nurture and support family life.
We call the PC(USA) 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.
