  1. So… abandon the pro-life movement completely? I’m not following on this one.

    1. Nope, not at all, but let’s not pretend that this issue hasn’t been politicized as of late by Conservatives who use the Cross to gain office.

  3. Sure you do. It’s why you post just as many vehement posts about their failed policies and tactics… lol

  4. It was within a year or two of Roe v. Wade that an outside guest spoke against abortion at a Baptist church where I was volunteer group leader. The presentation was complete with disturbing photographs. I remember thinking, “Just because it is visually disgusting that doesn’t make it wrong.” It was reading “Abortion and the Early Church” (1982, Intervarsity Press) that clarified my thinking on the issue. I’m against it.

  5. It doesn’t take much of a Google search to find that article lacking. Try 1866 and before then, not the early 1980s.

    ” … psychological science has now fully demonstrated the fact that life exists contemporaneously with conception. Consequently, designed abortion, even at it’s earliest period, is actual murder, with it’s full weight of guilt”. “Designed abortion therefore, … is a crime against soul and body”.

    The Evangelical repository and United Presbyterian review. 1866. Page 18.

    1. But, does that line up with what was going on with the Evangelicals in the 20th century? Note the change of course in the 1920’s with fundies in the US going underground
