Beginning of Life

Abortion

Official Statement: from various resolutions of the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship

"The FBF urges the continued condemnation of the sins of abortion . . . through preaching and writing, although this course of action becomes increasingly unpopular with the masses and difficult under the law." (1992 Resolutions[1])
"The FBF believes that abortion involves the taking of human life . . . and that using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion on demand in a health care package will be another nail in the coffin of the United States of America." (1993 Resolutions[2])


Healthcare & Medicine

Access to Healthcare

Official Statement: from 1994 Resolutions[3] of the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship

"The FBF stands fully opposed to a mandatory and universal government-controlled health "care" program. Not only is socialized medicine contrary to our Christian principles and American values, but it will lead our country in the wrong direction. The expansion of a humanistic, central government over the personal lives of its citizens is not in the best interest of the nation. It is neither the business nor the right of government to decide who or what shall or shall not be covered; these issues are the responsibility of the individual and family. Furthermore, Christians should not be financially liable for the medical treatment necessary to accommodate lifestyle choices of the ungodly. We encourage healthy debate on insurance reform, and issues such as overuse of elective procedures, malpractice claims and coverage, but it all must remain in the free market system. The solution has never been and should never be in governmental control and regulation. May our Lord provide us with wisdom as we seek His will to help others." (1994 Resolutions[4])

End of Life

Physician-Assisted Suicide/Euthanasia

Official Statement: from 1994 Resolutions[5] of the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship

"The FBF holds human life sacred and is in opposition to "assisted suicide" and other "death with dignity" practices. The "right to die" position is ungodly, unscriptural, and essentially humanistic. The ultimate claim to our lives belongs not to ourselves or the state, but to God." (1994 Resolutions[6])
