During the April 2021 General Conference, Elder Neil L. Andersen, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, called on Latter-day Saints to avoid abortion and encourage adoption.
According to the apostle, “abortion is an evil, stark and real, and repugnant, which is sweeping over the earth. I plead with the women of the church to shun it, to stand above it, to stay away from those compromising situations which make it appear desirable.”
While Elder Andersen acknowledged that there are circumstances that may require it but they are extremely limited.
He encourages the saints that if an unwanted child is expected, they should reach out with love, encouragement, and when needed, financial help.
“You are mothers of the sons and daughters of God, whose lives are sacred,” he said. “Safeguarding them is a divinely given responsibility which cannot be lightly brushed aside.”
