"WHEREAS, Christians in the American society today are faced with difficult decisions about abortion; and WHEREAS, Some advocate that there be no abortion legislation, thus making the decision a purely private matter between a woman and her doctor; and WHEREAS, Others advocate no legal abortion, or would permit abortion only if the life of the mother is threatened; Therefore, be it RESOLVED, that this Convention express the belief that society has a responsibility to affirm through the laws of the state a high view of the sanctity of human life, including fetal life, in order to protect those who cannot protect themselves; and Be it further RESOLVED, That we call upon Southern Baptists to work for legislation that will allow the possibility of abortion under such conditions as rape, incest, clear evidence of severe fetal deformity, and carefully ascertained evidence of the likelihood of damage to the emotional, mental, and physical health of the mother." -Resolution On Abortion, adopted at the SBC convention, June 1971
"Religious liberty, human equality and justice are advanced by the [Roe v. Wade] Supreme Court Decision." -W. Barry Garrett, Baptist Press, (circa 1973)
"A person's a person, no matter how small." -Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!, (c) August 1954
