Reverend admits to the “sanctity of unborn life” but is still pro-abortion

The Seattle Times said:

“… A salute is due a local group of Christian, Unitarian and Jewish clergy for coming together in a recent collective expression of support for choice on the matter of abortion.”

Pro-choice clergymen Reverend Bruce Parker, district superintendent for the United Methodist Church:

“said his church supports the sanctity of unborn life, yet is “equally bound to respect the sacredness of the life and well-being of the mother, for whom devastating damage may result from an unacceptable pregnancy.”
