WASHINGTON, D.C, Oct. 13, 2015Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, commented on Planned Parenthoods announcement today to stop receiving federal reimbursement for costs of fetal tissue programs.
Planned Parenthood’s announcement is an acknowledgment of what they have denied all along, Moore said. They traffic in human organs from non-consenting victims. This is essentially Planned Parenthood’s way of saying We never did this and we won’t do it again. It is time for the United States government to hold this predatory corporation accountable.
The Southern Baptist Convention is Americas largest Protestant denomination with more than 15.8 million members in over 46,000 churches nationwide. The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is the SBCs ethics, religious liberty and public policy agency with offices in Nashville, Tenn., and Washington, D.C.
