When Evangelicals Were Pro-choice

Jonathan Dudley of CNN looks at the history of the evolving evangelical stance on abortion. Contrary to widespread belief, many evangelicals were initially pro-choice, a position that eventually shifted through considerable political efforts. Dudley writes, “But before casting their ballots, such evangelicals would benefit from pausing to look back at their own history. In doing so, they might consider the possibility that they aren’t submitting to the dictates of a timeless biblical truth, but instead, to the goals of a well-organized political initiative only a little more than 30 years old.”
