When I read this my immediate thought was, "Wow, this is big, I mean really big!"
When abortion was legalized in individual states, some required counseling before the procedure. Methodist ministers were often among those signing off so women could kill their babies. The Methodist Church was a FOUNDING MEMBER of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice for heavens sake! A pro-life Methodist minister friend of mine who later became a Catholic talked about promoting life at one of their general meetings several decades ago. She was a pariah.
And now...well...what can one say? The times, they are a-changin'! Let's thank God for this positive step and work harder to expose the brutality of "choice" and the unnecessary victimization of both mothers and children.
