I’ve written dozens of times on the hijacking of the pro-life movement to advance socialism. The progressive Evangelical “pro-life from the womb to the tomb,” as they call it, has been adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and used by Evangelicals to spread the notion that in order to truly be pro-life, one must support not just Christian charities, but government programs designed to equalize the quality of life for all people around the world.
In an article I wrote previously, I demonstrated how modern Evangelicals today have adopted this mindset about the pro-life movement. “And these men, like Russell Moore and Tim Keller, have popularized and cloaked in Christian garb such Marxist ideas as mass immigration and redistribution of wealth to the point that most Christians simply won’t notice the subversive poison inside the rhetoric. And many will swallow it whole without giving it a second thought; after all, it’s Christian-sounding so it must be true, right?”
Below is the kind of response that I received from rank and file Southern Baptists:
Of course, after listening to the video from the ERLC conference below, it will be undeniable that what we said in that article was accurate and true.
In 2016, at the ERLC’s Evangelicals for Life Conference—which was headed up by the ERLC’s Russell Moore—one speaker, Ron Sider, an ecumenical social activist and author of Catholics and Evangelicals for the Common Good, gave an impassioned speech on what he thought it meant to be pro-life. In that speech, he compared the egregious sin of abortion to things like smoking, climate change, government vaccine programs, racism, and capital punishment. He then urged Evangelicals to take up these causes in order to demonstrate a truly biblical, pro-life ethic.
