In the summer of 2019, local Birmingham pastors began to unite and speak out against the expansion of abortion in our city with new energy and a true burden for the preborn. Out of that unity came a bold statement of faith: The Birmingham Proclamation.
With over one hundred local pastors, clergy and ministers signed on, this Proclamation expresses clear opposition to abortion in the state of Alabama and the city of Birmingham, especially in the case of a new Planned Parenthood being constructed downtown. (To find out more about local efforts to stop that Planned Parenthood, click here.)
The Proclamation also calls for unity among churches and encourages the Christian community to continue being a refuge for the preborn and their mothers and fathers.
To further facilitate that unity, we invite pastors, clergy, ministers, pro-life leaders and praying citizens from across the nation to sign your name to The Birmingham Proclamation!
Our hope is that this Proclamation will serve as a model for other cities across America, inspiring each to declare their city “a sanctuary for preborn children and pregnant mothers.” If you are a pro-life leader interested in seeing that happen in your city, contact us!
