Josh Brahm helping the local pastor prevent abortions

View descriptionShare

Josh Brahm is President of the Equal Rights Institute and has devised a single step which pastors and church leaders can take to prevent abortion.

He breaks down the fear and protectiveness many pastors feel, hoping to "do no harm" to those already impacted by abortion. For these pastors, Brahm comes alongside pastors to equip rather than criticize their silence.

In his article, One Thing Every Pastor Can Do to Prevent Abortions in their Congregation, Brahm provides a template for making church a safe place for those experiencing a problem pregnancy. Pastors and church leaders can learn to put abortion in context--Christians make up one-third of those having abortions each year. It is both common and yet shameful among Christians.

The solution involves regularly making announcements:

  • declaring the value of life before birth
  • refusing to promote abortion, whether directly or indirectly through gossip, shame or other passive rejections
  • celebrating the pregnancy with support, referrals to pregnancy centers, and even a baby shower in the woman's small group or where appropriate.

This is a comprehensive approach that every church can implement now. Read the article as well as ideas for the youth pastors to specifically help with younger church member.
