  • Religion isn't the one "talking" to it's members. It's other people.

  • Yes. Especially if the woman has come to the church for support and help in deciding on what decision she should make. Although I'm a Christian and against abortion as is the church I attend, we wouldn't turn our backs on someone in this position...we'd pray for you , answer your questions, help you see why God doesn't approve of abortion, and then...we'd just simply love you. Abortion is not an answer to any pregnancy other than victims of abuse, but if God won't turn His back on you...why should I???

  • Yes, They should speak out against it. and help those in need. Not to turn their backs on any of them no matter the pain or confusion.

  • Yes. It is important for churches to be involved in current events and issues and to take a spiritual stance on them. Churches should be helping Christians apply God's word to their every day lives, including political issues.
