Churches back abortion bill in Malawi

Due to the high records of rape cases in Malawi, the Malawi Council of Churches (MCC) has dropped their full weights to support the amendment of the abortion law that permits women to terminate unwanted pregnancy.
The bill which is still under review was triggered after a high number of women got pregnant from being raped and died while attempting to terminate pregnancies through unsafe procedures.
In a statement released by the chairperson of the Malawi Council of Churches (MCC), Reverend Alex Benson Maulana he explained that the church will continue to preach against abortion but will appreciate the government to consider the circumstances of a rape victim who wishes not to keep the pregnancy.
‘We will continue to preach that abortion is a sin but we appreciate government efforts to address maternal mortality caused by unwanted pregnancy. Most women who are raped or impregnated will have a choice whether to keep the pregnancy or not'.

The MCC is an umbrella organization formed by 25 Christian churches.

Which side of the bible do they read mbok

Liuz Babz said...

while rape n sexual abuse is highly disapproved of, the bible doesn't justify aborton except where the mother's life is at risk. They should work more on tackling the problem with the law and education rather than supporting abortion as the reaction

I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child because she's been raped or poverty happened , how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...

How can churches in Malawi bow to satanic pressure and support evil.let me ask here;what are they really aborting? Pls Malawian govt.should do more to curb the rate of rapes in the country and more so Malawian church's should in a matter of urgency reverse the "wicked" support to abortion.
