Evangelical leaders are finding their voice to lead the campaign in support of life.
The pro-life movement has been gaining momentum after undercover videos were released by the Center for Medical Progress, showing the atrocities committed by Planned Parenthood. Additionally, a nationwide protest took place last Saturday to urge government to defund Planned Parenthood.
Evangelical leaders are emerging at the vanguard of the pro-life movement, showing that they are unafraid to take a stand for life and against Planned Parenthood.
The Christian Post lists 33 leaders who have let their voices be heard regarding their pro-life stance, although the author clarifies that the 33 evangelical leaders mentioned by no means comprise an exhaustive list.
Rick Warren, well-known author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California has tweeted, “More Americans have died by being aborted than died in all the wars we've fought combined. A generation of talent is missing.”
Todd Wagner, senior pastor of Watermark Church in Dallas, TX provided four steps he believes are the best way to protest against Planned Parenthood:
3. Love LIFE (everyone you meet)
4. Let others know truth-SPEAK UP
David Platt, president of the International Missions Board tweeted, “Abortion is not primarily a political, social, women’s, or children’s issue. It is a God issue.”
John Piper, Chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, who spoke at the largest protest on Saturday in St. Paul admonished in a tweet, “Before it is too late, let every knee in Planned Parenthood bow and confess, ‘Jesus is Lord!’ to the glory of God the Father.”
Still others who are being vocal about the pro-life issue include Christine Caine, Ed Stetzer, Eric Metaxas, Randy Alcorn, Franklin Graham, Ravi Zacharias, and others.
