Subsequent week, The us commemorates a grim anniversary: It was on January 22, 1973 that the Supreme Court docket opened the doorways to legalized elective abortion-on-demand with its determination in Roe v. Wade.

The historic teaching of the Christian faith is that personhood starts at the instant of conception. Consider some prices from a widely varied team of theologians:

Clement of Alexandria, church father (circa one hundred fifty – 215 Advert): “Abortion is killing human daily life that is under God’s care, design and providence.”

John Calvin, Protestant Reformer: “…the unborn, even though enclosed in the womb of his mother, is presently a human being, and it is an nearly monstrous crime to rob it of life which it has not but begun to enjoy.”

Orthodox Church in The usa: “Because we imagine that every single of us is willed to be, by God, we are not able to accept the belief that the humanity which starts off at conception is accidental, or has no price … Each and every existence is valued infinitely by God. This contains the lifestyle of the unborn child.”

And previous but undoubtedly not the very least, the media’s favorite “liberal,” Pope Francis:

Amongst the vulnerable for whom the Church wishes to care with distinct enjoy and worry are unborn kids, the most defenseless and harmless amid us. Nowadays attempts are produced to deny them their human dignity and to do with them what ever 1 pleases … the Church cannot be predicted to alter her place on this question.

Guarding the unborn and their susceptible mothers has always been, and often will be, essential to Christian faith. The Apostle Peter, in 1 of the earliest sermons ever provided, referred to as Jesus “the Prince of Life” (Functions 3:15). Let us keep doing work to honor that wonderful title as we rejoice and defend the valuable life He creates.
