United Methodists Quit Abortion Coalition

United Methodists have voted to require church boards and agencies to withdraw immediately from an organization that advocates for abortion on demand. Delegates from across the 12.1 million-member denomination adopted a proposal concluding affiliation with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC) on a vote of 425 to 268 (61 percent to 39 percent) during their quadrennial General Conference meeting in Portland, Oregon.

Two United Methodist agencies, the General Board on Church and Society (GBCS) and United Methodist Women (UMW) are coalition members of RCRC.

  1. Milton says:

    Somewhat encouraging that at least in this one vitally important issue, a church seemingly hell-bent on plunging completely off the liberal Gadarene cliff has pulled back at the edge of the precipice. May God bring them back to their faithful roots entirely.
