      The constitutional dimensions of the abortion debate. Religious Groups’ Official Positions on Abortion A breakdown of 17 major religious groups’ views on abortion. The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod states that “[s]ince abortion takes a human life, it is not a moral option except to prevent the death of the mother.”. Abortion: A Moral Choice Carter Heyward My role here is to be an example of how one pro-choice advocate wrestles morally with the issue of abortion. My perspective on this issue is that of a feminist libera- tion theologian.

The clergy below represent many different religions and faith traditions, but they all agree that.
