Family Research Council

Abortion

Family Research Council believes few things are more detrimental to human dignity than the practice of abortion. A child in the womb is a distinct, developing, whole human being. Each time a mother decides—or a father pressures—to end such a life, it is a profound tragedy. God is the author of life, and the taking of life through abortion constitutes an assault on the image of God imprinted on every person (Psalm 139:13-16).

Abortion not only ends the life of a human being, it can cause grave physical harm to the mother and emotional harm to both the mother and father. We support the pregnancy resource center movement, which seeks to come alongside women, men, girls, and their families to provide accurate information, education, emotional support, and critical resources and referrals.
