Brandy's Corner

Does your church have a policy on Social Principles? You may want to look. If it does please pray for direction. Here's what my church, The United Methodist Church has to say:
Our belief in the sanctity of unborn human life makes us reluctant to approve abortion.

We recognize tragic conflicts of life with life that may justify abortion, and in such cases we support the legal option of abortion under proper medical procedures

Providing the care needed to maintain health, prevent disease, and restore health after injury or illness is a responsibility each person owes others and government owes to all, a responsibility government ignores at its peril.

We believe it is a governmental responsibility to provide all citizens with health care.

Every person has the right to a job at a living wage. Where the private sector cannot or does not provide jobs for all who seek and need them, it is the responsibility of government to provide for the creation of such jobs.

We support the right of all public and private employees and employers to organize for collective bargaining into unions and other groups of their own choosing.
TR says: So they are staunchly supportive of collective bargaining but only "reluctantly" supportive of abortion. Wow, that's some courageous moral leadership.
