I don’t know if most are aware of this, but the Salvation Army is Pro-Choice! Read their statement:
Note this point taken from the above statement:
“The Salvation Army believes in the sanctity of human life. Humankind was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). All people – without exception – are of value to him, holding a special place in his creation (Psalm 8:5), irrespective of age, gender, race, religion, health or social status, or their potential for achievement. The Bible makes it clear that human life is sacred: it is God who gives life (Acts 17:25) and God who decides when it ends (Psalm 104:29). In particular, the scriptural principle of the right to life of innocent human beings is firmly established (Isaiah 59:7, Jeremiah 22:3).”
“The Salvation Army believes that termination can occur only when
Carrying the pregnancy further seriously threatens the life of the mother; or
Reliable diagnostic procedures have identified a fetal abnormality considered incompatible with survival for more than a very brief post natal period.
Also, rape and incest are brutal acts of dominance violating women physically and emotionally. This situation represents a special case for the consideration of termination as the violation may be compounded by the continuation of the pregnancy.”
The Salvation Army allegedly has a connection with Planned Parenthood:
“Life Decisions International (LDI), a pro-life watchdog organization, keeps the pro-life community informed of companies and organizations that support the culture of death through direct donations to Planned Parenthood (PP) and support abortion through other means. For a fee, one can purchase their complete list of those organizations with permanent connections to PP. LDI also has an expanded “Dishonorable Mention” section detailing liberal groups that are associated with Planned Parenthood either through donations or joint programs. Salvation Army appears on that listing in addition to groups such as AARP, Lions Clubs, the American Cancer Society, Camp Fire Girls Inc., Girl Scouts, Kiwanis Clubs, the March of Dimes, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Rotary Clubs, and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
In an interview with Drew Mariani of Relevant Radio, Douglas Scott, founder of LDI also connects the “Executive Vic President of Salvation Army International with Planned Parenthood”. Further, Mr. Scott says that in some locations, “Planned Parenthood offices share an office with the Salvation Army”. In LDI correspondence with them, the SA quickly wants to change the subject and instead highlight, “all the good we do”.”
Please pray for the repentance of the Salvation Army. A group that professes charity and hope should extend the same philosophy to the unborn! Not assist in the actions of unlawful taking of life!
