Position Paper on Abortion (PDF Download)
A Position Paper is intended to set forth the “mind” of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church on a particular issue or subject. It is not intended to be a thorough theological statement nor a complete exegetical biblical study on the topic.
The purpose of such a Position Paper is to enable the EPC to make a statement to itself, the Christian community, and the world in general on a subject of recurring interest or one on which there is current compelling interest. Position Papers are not constitutional. Neither do they represent in-and-of-themselves “essentials” of the church.
The Position Paper on Abortion was adopted by the 6th General Assembly (June 1986) and amended by the 32nd General Assembly (June 2012) and the 33rd General Assembly (June 2013).
