"'Anti-Abortion' is Only the Beginning"



"LCMS congregations and leaders ought to encourage prevention of unintended pregnancies"  Rev. Jerry Kieschnick, LCMS President, in the March 2009 President's Journal

What, exactly, do you mean by that, Rev. Kieschnick?

Perhaps if more people ask we'll get an answer. Copy and paste the following text in a personal email to president@lcms.org
Rev. Kieschnick,

In your March 2009 President's Journal you said "LCMS congregations and leaders ought to encourage prevention of unintended pregnancies".

What, exactly, do you mean by "unintended pregnancies"? Also, please explain how you would recommend congregations and leaders should encourage their prevention.

I would like your permission to publicly share your reply.

Thank you,

Your Name

He doesn't answer my mail or phone calls. I tried with the Issues, Etc. cancellation.

I'm quite certain there was a lot more email in his inbox regarding the Issues Etc. cancellation than what he is getting regarding this statement.

Rob Olson said...

Yep.

I wish he would have said something like this: "We need to promote chastity among our members so as to keep the marriage bed holy and prevent unintended pregnancies" type statement.
