Every day in the United States 3,500 babies are murdered. Chances are there is an abortion clinic close to your home or church. Abortion has been promoted mainly by Planned Parenthood as simply being women's healthcare and only a woman's choice. However, abortion is murder and legalized child sacrifice. You can do something about abortion in your city.
Many Christians would object to abortion ministry as not being their calling. However, there are countless church activities which we attend without every asking ourselves if we were called to attend it. Were you called to go that conference last week or that potluck last Sunday?
Following in the footsteps of former abolitionist movements, we aim to end one of the greatest human miseries and moral evils ever to be entrenched in our world. Human beings are created in the image of Almighty God, the very Creator of the universe. The weakest and most helpless among us have been subjected by this wicked culture to accepted, legal, and systematic destruction. We are simply attempting to answer the question: What does Christianity look like in a culture that practices Child Sacrifice? And put our answer into action.
What is an Abolitionist? Abolitionists are those who adopt an uncompromising spirit in the face of prevailing injustices and boldly declare that they will not go with the multitude to permit evil (Exodus 23:2). They are those who refuse to sit idly by while oppression, violence, and vice run rampant in their culture (Isaiah 10:1-4). Abolitionists are driven by a desire to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with their God (Micah 6:8). Abolitionists are not interested in merely abstaining from evil themselves, but are committed to exposing evil and bringing it into conflict with the truth of Christianity (Ephesians 5:11). Abolitionists seek to bring justice to the fatherless and help to the helpless (Isaiah 1: 16-17). ABOLITIONISTS “TAKE NO PART IN THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, BUT INSTEAD EXPOSE THEM.” At the root of all abolitionist movements you will find the presence of two interrelated theological propositions. The first is that human beings are created in the image of God and created to reflect that image. The second is that the Creator himself became a man in order to rescue mankind from sin, self-destruction, death, and eternal separation from God. The work of abolition has been carried out over the centuries in obedience to the Biblical command to love one’s neighbor as themselves and glorify God with all one’s heart, soul, and mind.
Abolitionism is the expression of vital Christianity in a culture that enslaves and murders image bearers of God and the neighbors we are commanded to love (Matthew 22:37-39). Abolitionists have attempted to “rescue those who are being taken away to death” and “hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter” (Proverbs 24:11-12). Abolitionists have been committed to the practice of “true religion”: caring for the fatherless, assisting widows, and keeping themselves unstained by the world (James 1:27). Abolitionists boldly engage in the work of fighting evil head-on, but they also commit to helping those caught up in the injustices they seek to remove from the culture.

Abortion and Abolitionism
"When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide My eyes from you; yes, even though you multiply prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are covered with blood. Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from My sight Cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow."
Abortion is sin. We believe it is the responsibility of the Christian church to rescue those being taken away to death (Proverbs 24:11) and to expose the evil of abortion (Ephesians 5:11).

It is our responsibility as Christians to reach out to the lost and dying world, to expose evil and defend righteousness. We do this by the power of the gospel which is the only means by which someone can be truly saved from their sin and healed from their iniquities. Love is our motivation in our attempt to reach the women who believe abortion is their "choice".
"For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Jesus, Paul, the apostles, the early church fathers and apologists were all bold in their proclamation of truth. Our calling is the same. Approximately 3,500 babies are murdered each day, we are not called to sit back and relax but to be bold and speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Just as the abolitionists of the nineteenth century sought to abolish the evil of their day, human slavery. Abolitionists today seek to abolish one of the greatest evils of our day, human abortion. Human beings are created in the image of Almighty God, the very Creator of the universe. The weakest and most helpless among us have been subjected by this wicked culture to accepted, legal, and systematic destruction.
