SBC 2002 Resolutions

[ How to submit a resolution ]

Resolution No. 10

WHEREAS, Our Convention has a long history of affirming the sanctity of life; and

WHEREAS, President George W. Bush has reiterated his agreement with us in our historical efforts to save children from their deaths by abortion, in his remarks to this convention on June 11, 2002; and

WHEREAS, There seems to have been a diversion from this tragedy of abortion by the national tragedy of September 11, 2001; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That the messengers of the Southern Baptist Convention, in St. Louis, Missouri, June 11-12, 2002, respectfully request that the President make the passage of legislation banning partial-birth abortion a high priority in this administration. With the current and past support of such legislation and without the threat of a veto, we believe that now is the time to end this inhumane and horrendous practice.

FURTHER, That this resolution be delivered to the President, Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President of the Senate of the United States.
