WELS Resolution on Abortion:


          Wheras,

                                    1)   The Holy Scriptures clearly teach that the living yet unborn are persons in the sight of God
                                            and are under the protection of His Commandment against murder, Ex 20:13, Ps 5:15,
                                            Ps 139:13, Jer 1:15, Luke 1:41-44, and
          Wheras,

                                    2)   our hearts are grieved over the millions of unborn who are being murdered each year through
                                            the sin of willful abortion: and

          Wheras,

                                    3)   our Synod has historically testified against abortion, except when it is medically necessary to
                                            save the life of the mother, therefore be it

          Resolved,

                                    a)   That we encourage our Synodical periodicals as well as our pastors and teachers to continue
                                            fervently and faithfully to testify against abortion, and be it further

          Resolved,

                                    b)   That we continue to urge our membership to make God's will in this matter known to our
                                            fellowmen whenever the opportunity present itself, and be it further

          Resolved,

                                    c)   That we encourage our membership to express their concern and compassion for distressed
                                            pregnant women by supporting the development of alternatives to abortion programs which
                                            are consistent with God's Word, and be it finally

          Resolved,

                                    d)   That we more zealously preach the Gospel of Christ which alone can change the wicked
                                            hearts of men and turn them from sin to righteousness.
