Our Official Position

"Our belief in the sanctity of unborn human life makes us reluctant to approve abortion." If one is reluctant to jump off a building, you did not jump. So this is not approved by United Methodists.

beyond 'Pro-Life" vs. "Pro-Choice"

Looking beyond the 'right vs. wrong' division of the issue; it seems that the primary effort is to support "Pro-Birth". However. demanding that the child be born carries an expectation of support of healthcare/prenatal care for the mother, as well as fully supporting education of that child to mature to adulthood and be able to become a productive member of society. Abortions were taking place long before they became 'legal' and will continue after they are declared 'illegal' and snitching on your neighbor becomes the norm. Reverting to back-alley 'clinics' maintained by cigar-smoking 'providers' in bloody aprons with coat hangers is not a desirable outcome. The words of Matthew 7:1-2 in 'The Message' are very challenging; viz. “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging." i.e. "Judge Not!"
