The pro-life community has Scripture and history on its side in opposing abortion, theologian Albert Mohler says in a new podcast.
Mohler, the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., also says he believes “faithful Christians” cannot be pro-choice.
Mohler made the comments while discussing Georgia pastor and U.S. Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, who describes himself as a “pro-choice pastor.” Warnock is pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
“Can religious people be pro-abortion, or in this case using the language that they prefer, ‘pro-choice’? Well, the answer is of course religious people can, but I would argue that consistent Christians cannot,” Mohler said in Monday’s edition of The Briefing. “… I do not believe that one can be a faithful Christian and do anything other than uphold and contend for the dignity and sanctity of every single human life, including the life of the unborn.”
