Abortion: A Rational Look at An Emotional Issue

January 22, 2011 marks the 38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. On January 3rd, the 112th United States Congress will open with newly elected representatives in the Senate and the House of Representatives joining the incumbents. This is an important opportunity to influence our nation’s leaders on the critical issue of abortion.

To coincide with both of these dates, Ligonier Ministries will send R.C. Sproul’s Twentieth Anniversary special edition of Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue to every member of Congress.

Abortion is an important issue regarding disability, as 90% of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. Doctors are not always educated on how to best discuss options with parents facing the decision of whether to continue the pregnancy of a baby diagnosed with a disability, and many assume that the parents would not want to continue the pregnancy. Regardless of whether abortion is legal or illegal, there is much that can be done in terms of how a doctor discusses such sensitive issues with parents and making sure that all parents in such a situation are given adequate and up-to-date information.

If you feel led, please make a donation to help the Ligonier's meet their goal of raising. $6,000 to fund this effort. Every $10 donation will send a book to one of our representatives.
