That's bad, but it gets worse. They allow and pay for abortions for any reason. They don't limit them to only cases where the health of the mother or child are in jeopardy. They pay for any abortion that state laws allow. The baby has Down's syndrome? Abortion approved. Mother doesn't want to be tied down with a baby? Abortion approved. Wanted a boy, not a girl? Abortion approved. Abortion for any reason.
During the ELCA Church-wide Assembly in 1997 some voting members tried to limit medical coverage for abortions. They submitted that abortions could be paid for "only in cases that involve pregnancy that results from the violence of rape or incest, or serious threats to the physical health of the mother, or abnormalities of the embryo or fetus that are incompatible with life." The majority of the voters and leaders of the ELCA said NO. 651 votes to 271 votes. (http://www.exposingtheelca.com/on-abortion.html) They did not want to limit abortions. The ELCA wants to pay for them all. Or should I say, they want YOU to pay for all abortions. Money you thought was going for God's work.
Do you think Jesus would tell people to kill their child? Our paying for abortions makes it easier for people to have them. Is that God's will? Do you believe God thinks the ELCA is doing a loving thing by funding abortions? This is a denomination gone wild! Doing their own will. Making their own truth while rejecting God's Words. And they love having US pay for it!
Christ followers, the ELCA is on brink of not even being Christian anymore.
