Texas “Churches”: Abortion “A Moral and Social Good”


Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis: What is abortion—a hideous evil or “a moral and social good”? Well, that depends on your starting point, God’s Word or man’s word! Sinful human beings, who are in rebellion against God and ignore his Word and look to their own selfish, dark hearts for “truth,” will affirm darkness instead of light, death instead of life, and call good evil and evil good (Isaiah 5:20).

The state of Texas has been in the news recently because lawmakers have enacted a “heartbeat bill” that bans abortions after a heartbeat can be detected (usually around six weeks’ gestational age). This is, of course, a good step in saving unborn lives, but it doesn’t go far enough as every person is fully human from the moment of fertilization, not just when a heartbeat can be detected. But a coalition of 25 “churches” in Texas believes the opposite and is fighting to “eradicate stigma around reproductive freedom in Texas . . . one congregation at a time.”

Three Guiding Principles

Any congregation that wants to join the coalition (so far most of the “churches” are Unitarian Universalist, with some Presbyterian and one Baptist congregation as well) must affirm the following three principles:

  • “We trust and respect women.”
  • “We promise that people who attend our congregation will be free from stigma, shame, or judgment for their reproductive decisions, including abortion.”
  • “We believe access to comprehensive and affordable reproductive health services is a moral and social good.”

What is important to see here is that before the Antichrist makes his entrance on the world stage a falling away comes first.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” 2 Thess. 2:3 KJV
