An Open Letter to Pro-Lifers About Rescue Operations

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

After attending a planning meeting for a rescue in my area, I thought it appropriate to write and explain why I cannot in good conscience participate in such a rescue. I have discussed this subject with some pastors and laymen, and at this point everyone just seems to be "tossed to and fro." I did some serious thinking and praying after that meeting and have come to the conclusion that I cannot do a rescue "in faith." I may be wrong, but I believe that such an avenue of action is not Biblical or prudent, Proverbs 24 notwithstanding. In an effort to help you think through the theological and practical questions relating to the current rescue rage, I am offering my thoughts on the subject.
