GENERAL COUNCIL MOTION REGARDING THE UNBORN
October 24, 2008, Victoria, British Columbia
52nd General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church (founded 1873)
Forasmuch as the Reformed Episcopal Church has affirmed the teaching of God’s Word that abortion is the taking of an unborn human life, and inasmuch as we have recognized the duty of all faithful Christians to work to protect the unborn and restrain the sin of abortion on demand, we hereby move that the General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church direct the clergy and laity of the Reformed Episcopal Church to make a political candidate’s position on the Sanctity of Human Life the highest priority in discerning for whom to vote regardless of political party represented or office being sought.
[This motion passed unanimously, enthusiastically, and soberly. A season of prayer followed for God’s mercy on the unborn, on those pregnant out of marriage, on those who have had abortions, and to have godly politicians.]
