Churches lag on pro-life ministry

Students for Life's Institute for Pro-Life Advancement has released a new poll on discussing abortion within the church. Spokesperson Lisa Stover tells OneNewsNow a Gallup Poll found that 52 percent of women who have an abortion self-identify as Christians.

“And then in 2015 LifeWay Research found the number to be close to 70 percent, and they also found that 76 percent of those active, church-going women said that their church had no influence on their decision to abort,” she says. “And so this really shows that there's something lacking in our churches today.”

So if Christians attending church are not hearing the pro-life message and feel they have nowhere to turn within the church, she says, they tend to seek abortions.
