This Open Letter From The Uniting Church Proves That Christians Can Support Abortion Rights

NSW is currently in the midst of a push to decriminalise abortion, and as you’d expect, many Christian churches are busy releasing outraged statements on the issue. The Uniting Church, however, has released a very different kind of open letter, throwing its support behind decriminalising abortion, and explaining why that stance is compatible with Christianity. It’s worth a read.
The letter manages to retain a lot of the nuance that is often lost in heated debates on abortion: affirming the Christian belief that life is sacred, but also acknowledging that this belief does not mean Christians must oppose abortion.
