United Methodists Revise Population Resolution

May 11, 2012 • Family Planning, Daily Email Recap

You may be interested to know that the General Conference of the United Methodist Church has, during its recently concluded convention in Tampa FL, revised its resolution on Population. It is a bit stronger than the previous one in terms of acknowledging that Genesis 1:28 is not a commandment of indefinite duration…

The call to action section of the document begins by asking all United Methodists to access educational opportunities that focus on the issue of population and its inter-relatedness to other critical issues such as poverty, disease, hunger, environment, injustice, and violence, and to promote these opportunities in the local church. The document also urges that United Methodist medical facilities around the world to provide a full range of reproductive health and family planning information and services.
