(02/10/2015) "In 2015, 34% of Americans say they are satisfied with current U.S. abortion policies. This is the lowest percentage since Gallup first asked the question in 2001. …. Americans who say they are dissatisfied with current abortion policies were asked a follow-up question to learn if they are dissatisfied because they want current abortion laws to be stricter or less strict. This year, of those who are dissatisfied, twice as many prefer stricter rather than less strict laws: 24% want stricter laws, while 12% want current abortion laws to be less strict."

(02/02/2015) The "Director of Civil and Human Rights” for the United Methodist Church Board of Church and Society, Bill Mefford, posted a picture to Twitter [on January 22] mocking the pro-life marchers. Mefford ... ridiculed the marchers by posting a picture of himself standing before them with a sign saying “I march for sandwiches.” Following the uproar, he apologized on his Twitter account the next day - and then deleted the account.

(01/27/2015) "Pro-choice leaders ... maintain that legal abortion is now a fact of life, and that one in three women will seek the procedure at least once in their life. But pro-life leaders cite fresh polling data from Marist College in New York as more evidence that most young Americans do not favor abortion and will not sustain the status quo. According to SFLA [Students for Life of America], the Marist poll data on millennials shows that 59 percent think abortion is 'morally wrong,' 58 percent think abortion 'does more harm than good,' and 64 percent think the abortion rate is 'higher than it should be.'"

(01/20/2015) "Revelations of NARAL’s latest alliance with local government to eliminate all options besides abortion in Montgomery County [Maryland] illustrates abortion’s allegiance to a vision centered on the almighty self. …. But that’s not the reason NARAL and their political friends are trying to shut down and discredit pregnancy help organizations. NARAL’s main mission is to protect the abortion industry’s bottom line—their profit margin. And, since the “goods and services” they are peddling are deadly to at least half who enter their facilities, any sort of competition poses a real and imminent threat. …. And this is why we pose such a threat to NARAL and company. It’s not just that we are their competition. It’s that we are winning."

(01/13/2015) "When the topic of abortion is covered in the media, it generally tends to play into the liberal theme of “a woman’s right to choose” or circumstances where abortions may be deemed “necessary” – which makes this [December 14, 2014] Boston Globe story on prenatal screening inaccuracy leading to unnecessary abortions all the more interesting. …. as Beth Daley of the New England Center for Investigative Reporting relayed in the Globe, those prenatal screening tests that so many doctors, physicians, and women rely on, are oftentimes inaccurate. As a result, these inaccuracies are causing many women to seek abortions for babies that have no chromosomal or genetic condition."

(01/06/2015) You are invited to attend the ANNUAL LIFEWATCH WORSHIP SERVICE at 9:30 am on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at the United Methodist Building, 100 Maryland Avenue in Washington, DC.

Rev. Stallsworth's Annual Letter

2015 MODEL RESOLUTIONS FOR YOUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE (pdf)  (doc)

Our Mission:

Out of obedience to Jesus Christ, the Taskforce of United Methodists on Abortion and Sexuality (TUMAS) will work to create in church and society esteem for human life at its most vulnerable, specifically for the unborn child and for the Woman who contemplates abortion.  Therefore, TUMAS's first goal is to win the hearts and minds of United Methodists, to engage in abortion-prevention through theological, pastoral and social emphases that support human life."

Jim Caviezel Speaks on Abortion
