|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.
