New Survey Shows 93% of Sermons on Abortion Took a Biblical Position Against Killing Babies

Abortion is not a major sermon topic in most American churches, but when it is discussed, most pastors teach that unborn babies are valuable human beings who deserve to be protected, according to a new Pew Research Center report.

Few U.S. sermons mention abortion, though discussion varies by religious affiliation and congregation size

Abortion remains a contentious issue among U.S. Christians. But when millions of churchgoers file into the pews each week, what do they really hear? A new Pew Research Center analysis finds that just 4% of sermons shared on U.S. church websites in the spring of 2019 discussed abortion even once – and when they did, it was rarely mentioned repeatedly.
