Living Out Christianity in Front of Abortion Clinics
This is an update on our local Abortion Clinic and the broader issue of silent prayer at clinics across the country.
A Biblical Christian Perspective
Abortions and the clinics that support them, have always been a hot-button issue in this country. Roe-v-Wade was built on the false premise that the Constitution provided federal authority over states’ rights. When that view was recently overturned, states are now tasked with deciding these guidelines.
Many progressive Christians challenge the notion that the Bible is clear on abortion. Others reject the Bible entirely. They focus instead on the blanket love Jesus has for everyone, including a women’s rights. They miss the reality that Christ includes the unborn as the most vulnerable of all His children. If one objectively looks at the Scripture, God is very clear that He sees the unborn as one of His children (BCW Article here). However, since we live in a sinful world where one often has to decide between the lesser of evils rather than pure good vs evil, there are situations where the life of the mother should take precedence. Christians need to respond as an advocate for the unborn, but with grace and love toward those who disagree (BCW Article here).
