Support Crisis Pregnancy Centers (81327-C2-¶161.J)

Amend ¶161J as follows:  
The beginning... We particularly encourage the Church, the government, and social service agencies to support and facilitate the option of adoption. (See ¶ 161.K.) We affirm and encourage the Church to assist the ministry of crisis pregnancy centers and pregnancy resource centers that compassionately help women find feasible, non-violent alternatives to abortion. Governmental laws...

Rationale

While government policies may vary, such ministries dedicated to compassionately and ethically helping women helping women facing unplanned or unwanted pregnancies find feasible alternatives to abortion are a valuable ministry of fulfilling Christ’s call to compassion, mercy, and non-violence, and so should be affirmed by our Church.
