Two years before the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, the largest Protestant group in the United States made a powerful statement on abortion.
The Southern Baptist Convention wanted to make it legal.
The members of the convention listed in a 1971 resolution when it should be allowed: “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.”
So, God is obtuse when it comes to abortion? Or is this just another case of Protestants making it up as they go?
Answer seems pretty simple, really.
