Encouraging Pastors to Speak Out on Abortion

ve8QAd   |   October 01, 2002

The pro-life message is often most effectively communicated when a pastor speaks on the matter to his congregation. The clergy have a great deal of influence on their members and can greatly impact their thinking and actions on issues like abortion, euthanasia, cloning and embryonic stem cell research.

It is often said that if America’s pastors would assertively address the issue of abortion from their pulpits, this modern-day-holocaust would likely be a grim part of our nation’s past.

Dayton Right to Life understands the importance of pastors speaking out. As a result, this Ohio Right to Life chapter has developed a new projected called “Pastor Praise.”

The chapter encourages individuals in the greater Dayton area to notify them when a pastor effectively preaches on the sanctity of innocent human life. Dayton Right to Life responds with a personal hand-written note of thanks and encouragement. They also enclose an appropriate lapel pin featuring a cross and dove with the ten-week baby feet pin.

This new project has had some very positive outcomes. Not only is the pastor thanked for his pro-life sermon, the lapel pin is a constant reminder to him and his congregation of the plight of America’s unborn babies. Further, a positive relationship is established with an influential member of the community. The pastors become familiar with the local pro-life group as a source of information and educational materials.

The response from area pastors has been totally positive, which encourages them to conduct future sermons on these critical issues of our day. In addition, they may also encourage other clergy to speak out from their pulpits. If you’d like more information on “Priest Praise”, contact Dayton Right to Life, 425 N Findlay St, Dayton, OH 45404. Phone 937.461.3625.
