  • During the sermon, I regretfully did not finish the thought about ectopic pregnancies. I should have said that medical emergencies, etc. are their own situation and should be regarded as such. I was trying to say that these pregnancies are NOT reasons why we shouldn't do anything about abortion. Legislation, hospital procedures, et. al. should be crystal clear and not hinder for a moment or cause any delay of care especially when those moments truly matter. My apologies for the way I stated it in the sermon.
