Recently the Southern Baptist Convention adopted a strong resolution opposing abortion.

The resolution states that abortion is murder, and “that the murder of preborn children is a crime against humanity.”

The resolution also notes that the U.S. Supreme Court overstepped its authority when it handed down Roe v. Wade and that abortion has cost the lives of more than 60 million unborn babies.

The Southern Baptist Convention is the largest Baptist denomination in the United States, and the convention has issued many different resolutions regarding abortion since the 1970s.

It’s great to see the Southern Baptist Convention continuing to take a decidedly pro-life position against abortion.
