“Evil … Shameful … Demonic…”
That’s what Hillsong pastor Stephen Carl Lentz said about the new, radical New York abortion law. He stood strong in condemning the legalization of killing healthy babies up to the moment of birth.
Unlike other Christians, pastors and church leaders – who are turning their backs and being silent – Pastor Lentz spoke truth, even knowing he would be criticized.
I’ve been critical of Lentz in the past for running from standing firm on cultural issues during TV interviews.
But he stood strong this time.
He also called out Christians to do more than just be pro-life.
Question: what are you and your church doing in promoting adoption and in providing crisis pregnancy counseling?
Here is Pastor Lentz’s complete statement.

Found this old photo recently, and I remember it taking me years to process that these LITTLE PEOPLE, had come into our world! A miracle, without a doubt. And I’m saddened and angry that we are now a state that has made it legal to have an abortion even into the last day of a pregnancy. I spent hours talking to lawyers and people who hold opposing views on this issue. Although it is layered and there is language in it that some are claiming will protect mothers in peril, the only way I can describe where we are and where this is all headed..is evil, shameful and demonic. I dont use those words lightly, but they are applicable here. Some have said this is strictly a “women’s rights issue.” i dont disagree. We simply believe that WOMEN IN THE WOMB deserve the right to life, deserve the right to breath. Laws like this say unless you have a voice, if somebody deems you “viable/non viable” you have no protection. Psalm 139, tells us otherwise. I have hope still, that God will help us raise our collective voices, to see this change. This cannot stand. …I know @hillsongnyc and many many other churches and organizations have been working hard for years to create options and help for those dealing with a pregnancy that is overwhelming for many reasons. And we will continue to do so. I’m also aware that often “pro-life politics”(while also supporting the death penalty, of course) have been quick to condemn abortion and the people that have them and then be invisible and hypocritical when it comes to helping women in need, in poverty, those who cannot gain access to proper medical care and creating policies that can help those that dont choose abortion. Those are facts. But this law, isn’t about politics. This is about generations of babies that have no defense. Despite this dark day, our future is STILL bright because we know where our help comes from. #occupyallstreets
