Please join NRB in praying for the strength, integrity, and security of the Supreme Court as the Court deliberates on matters of critical importance to our nation, including the issues at stake in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
“As Christians, we oppose the destruction of innocent life through abortion and desire to see the sanctity of life affirmed in our nation’s laws—including if this matter is referred back to the states in the near future,” said CEO Troy A. Miller. “However, we are alarmed by this malicious attempt to undermine the confidential deliberative work of the Supreme Court, and we pray for God’s protection on all Supreme Court justices as they continue in their public service.”
At our 2022 convention in Nashville, Tennessee, NRB’s Board of Directors approved a resolution renewing NRB’s historic position of affirming the right to life and calling on states to uphold the sanctity of life pending the ruling of the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson.
Whereas human life bears the image of God and, therefore, has intrinsic value and dignity (Genesis 1:27; 1 Corinthians 11:7a). Moreover, human life begins at conception—as Scripture tells us, “You knit me together in my mother’s womb,”—and every person is “fearfully and wonderfully made” by Him (Psalm 139:13-16);
Whereas nearly one million pregnancies are terminated every year in the United States, with a disproportionate impact on Black and Latino unborn lives;
Whereas a pending Supreme Court decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization could overturn Roe v. Wade, which would mark a historic turning point in the fight for unborn life;
Therefore be it resolved that NRB affirms the right to life of the unborn; NRB denounces the moral crime of demanding and celebrating abortion within American society; and NRB calls on states, pending the ruling of the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson, to pursue laws and reforms that uphold the sanctity of life, reduce abortions, and treat all human life with dignity.
Resolution approved by the NRB Board of Directors, March 8, 2022.
