Whereas, the Word of God clearly condemns murder and states that He hates the murderer.  “You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13.  “These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:   A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.”  Proverbs 6:16-19); and

Whereas, human society has always recognized the taking of innocent life as murder; and 

Whereas, there has been an increase, especially among those who practice and support the taking of life by abortion, to further willingly support and perform  post-abortion infanticide; and

Whereas, this stands in clear opposition to God’s revealed will in His Word, is a departure from both our constitutionally recognized right to life and liberty and the societal view of morality throughout history among civilized nations; and

Resolved that the 83rd General Synod of the Bible Presbyterian Church, meeting in Tacoma, Washington, August 1-5, 2019, calls on the members of our various state and federal legislatures to reject laws which allow for the crime of infanticide, institutionally or otherwise; and be it further 

Resolved that the General Synod urges all Christians to protect this precious right to life for both the pre-born and the post-born, regardless of age.
