In anticipation of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearings on the “fetal heartbeat” bill set for August 12 and 13, the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board is circulating an “I Stand for Life” petition that is garnering signatures from Baptists across the state who believe life begins at conception and abortion is wrong. Currently, more than 4,200 have signed the petition.
About this new initiative, TBMB President & Executive Director Randy C. Davis says, “We want to let this committee—and the full legislature when it reconvenes—know that Tennessee Baptists stand for life and that we want laws in our state that protect the lives of precious unborn babies.”
FACT certainly applauds efforts like this in the Body of Christ to broadcast the pro-life message to both our state legislature and our culture.
