Watch pastor Josh Buice, whose church hosted our National Event this summer, take a bold stance on abolishing abortion at G3 where we were privileged to minister and continue to educate the church on her duty before these little ones. Below the video is the full transcript.

Do you consider yourself an abolitionist?”

“I do consider myself to be an abolitionist, for a very long time I did not. I would engage in what might be considered incrementalism, the idea of pushing back slowly against abortion.

But, as I read scripture, and as I looked at the way the “pro-life” establishment opposes the full abolition of abortion, I considered what Scripture says.

Here in the State of Georgia, you have a Heartbeat Bill that was passed. People seem to rally around that, it seems to be very popular. Christians seem to support it. The problem with legislation like that is highlighted in Proverbs 20:10 which says that unequal weights and unequal measures are an abomination to the Lord.

So what happens in states that adopt a law or pass a bill like that is that you create two classes of babies. One class that’s protected by law and another class of babies that is handed over to murderers. And so for me, it just became clear that this is what the Bible says.

We should stand for the fact that scripture teaches that life begins at conception, not at 6 weeks or 12 weeks or 13 weeks. When we have someone like former President Trump, who seems to be very bold on the issues and really not ashamed to be standing on principle or conviction, but he can’t seem to answer a question when it comes to the protection of the unborn, we as the church of Jesus Christ need to do just that.

And so for me, it’s not that I’m against anyone that would say I want to see a further advancement of standing for life in my state — but here’s the problem. In the state of Louisiana a few years back there was a bill that was placed out for consideration that had a great deal of support, and it was on the full abolition of abortion. And just before the vote, 70 pro-life organizations wrote a letter, including National Right to Life, that actually stood in opposition to a bill that would protect every life in the state. Guess what happened to the bill? It failed.

That is the pro life establishment. I reject that type of thing, I stand for the full abolition of abortion. I think we as a church need to stand up. I think if we as the church would stand up and speak up and be clear about that and educate the church about that, we would see this cause advanced across the nation.”
