Great Sermon! The Didache, a second-century catechism for young converts, states, "Do not murder a child by abortion or kill a newborn infant" [Didache 2.2]. Clement of Alexandria maintains that "those who use abortifacient medicines to hide their fornication cause not only the outright murder of the fetus, but of the whole human race as well" [Paedogus 2:10.96.1]. Yet the Southern Baptists Resolved in 1972 to "work for legislation that will allow the possibility of abortion." Unbelievably, the SBC still supports abortion "to save the physical life of the mother" (1999 Resolution) -- as if abortion could ever be necessary, helpful or loving to both mother and child regardless of the mother's dire medical condition. [http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/baptist/sbcabres.html] How can the SBC continue claiming to be Christian and still support abortion? In all honestly, if a denomination does not have even one formal written statement against abortion and abortifacients, how can they Biblically claim to be following Jesus? Finally, which denomination has come out loud-and-clear against the "HHS (abortifacient) Contraceptive Mandate"? Thank you for this important exhortation!
