    Good: Atlanta Church offers to adopt any baby

    The right idea:
    One Atlanta church has a bold challenge to anyone considering abortion: "Peachtree Presbyterian Church will care for any newborn baby you bring to this church."

    So says Pastor Vic Pentz in a recent sermon. The church is partnering with the adoption agency Bethany Christian Services to make this happen and to start the education process for their congregation. Adoption is never simple and easy, but I love this bold action instead of the usual rhetoric around abortion.

    We don't need more protests and picket signs. We need more churches stepping forward and making life an easy choice (whether it's adoption or helping a pregnant woman keep the baby). [Church Marketing Sucks]
    Church support of pregnant women is more widespread than the above author may think. I was very proud of the large sign outside my first DC parish which promised to help and support any woman facing a crisis pregnancy.

    The Church is always a good place to go in times of trouble.
