Responsible Parenthood (81339-C2-R25)

Amend Resolution #25: Responsible Parenthood as follows:
    We affirm the principle of responsible parenthood...
   When through contraceptive or human failure an unacceptable pregnancy occurs...

Rationale

Supporting abortion as a back-up method of contraception is inconsistent with the stand in ΒΆ 161J of our Social Principles, which states that “We cannot affirm abortion as an acceptable means of birth control.”
