Aborting a Pro-Abortion Resolution

The United Methodist Church did something surprising, as reported by Jim Daly at Focus on the Family:

For 40 years the United Methodist Church has supported the Supreme Court's infamous Roe v. Wade decision—that is, until last week.

Delegates of the country's third-largest religious body voted 445 to 310 to repeal the official resolution supporting the case establishing a constitutional "right" to abortion during its General Conference. They also voted to sever its affiliation with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), an interfaith organization co-founded by the United Methodist Church.

If you are wondering what's wrong with RCRC in particular (aside from their use of "reproductive choice" to mean abortion), here's the deal, according to Daly:

The RCRC advocates for abortion without restrictions—the legal killing of any pre-born child for any reason at any point during pregnancy. The group even supports partial-birth and sex-selection abortion, and promotes rituals to bless the work of abortion clinics.

Bless the killing of unborn children? Well, the UMC perhaps has just turned its back on the sacrifice of children as the exercise of an implied God-given right.

Salvo opposes abortion at any stage of pregnancy, but any step in the right direction is encouraging. It took the UMC 40 years, like Israel in the wilderness? Keeping moving, UMC, to the Promised Land. •
