The PCA and Abortion


I lead the Life Chain in my area. An Orthodox Presbyterian church in our area participates but Presbyterian Church in America churches say they are pro-abortion. Both denominations subscribe to the Calvinist theology of Sola Scriptura. So, where can I find a copy of the Bible from each denomination so I can determine the difference and the reason for the different positions on abortion?


Thank you for your inquiry. I am a bit confused by your question, having formerly been a minister in the PCA. While I was a minister there, the PCA General Assembly adopted a very strong statement against abortion which is available on their CEP Bookstore website here. I hope that you have mistaken a church from a different "Presbyterian" denomination for this PCA church. Both the PCA and OPC have clearly stated that we believe the Bible to prohibit abortion.
