Southern Baptists for Abolishing Abortion

A group of Southern Baptists has started an organization called Southern Baptists for Abolishing Abortion. While pro-life is a common position among Southern Baptists, John Smith, pastor of Evergreen Baptist Church in Cashmere, Washington emphasized this difference, “All other resolutions [in the SBC, about abortion] have stopped short of calling abortion for what it is, the murder of our pre-born neighbors and the call for its immediate end.” 

Derin Stidd, pastor of Harmony Baptist Church in Frankfurt, Indiana told The Resurgent, “...instead of celebrating legislation which regulates when, where, and how a baby can be murdered, our resolution calls for Christ-honoring legislation which seeks to completely and totally criminalize abortion without exception or compromise. In this regard, our resolution is the only anti-abortion call-to-action that is actually consistent with our doctrinal statement.”
