YUBA CITY, California, September 8, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The founder of the national Life Chain, which is set to take place October 2nd, is urging Protestant pastors to confront the “spirit of child aversion” that was created by the embrace of contraception.
Royce Dunn, president of Please Let Me Live, issued an open letter to pastors in July urging them to take concrete measures to “end the American Holocaust” of abortion. The devoted Baptist is calling for “a new mindset” towards procreation that is open to God’s gift of fertility.
In an interview, Dunn told LifeSiteNews that the “spirit of child aversion,” the desire to avoid bearing children, is “the uppermost key to the killing of children in America.”
He said that at the bare minimum, pastors should be warning their faithful about abortifacient contraceptives, “so that women in the pews and at the pickets won’t be aborting children unaware.”
“If enhanced, [the contraceptive] desire leads to abortion, and today in our nation a holocaust endures for which the church is substantially accountable,” he writes in his letter.
“The pulpit, of necessity, must voice the word it has long avoided and perhaps feared most. The word is contraception,” he writes. While pastors avoid the subject, “year by year Christians use contraception freely because they do not desire a child or additional children in their home.”
