Dr. Thom White Wolf Fassett is the General Secretary of the General Board of Church and Society of The United Methodist Church. Recently, answering some concerned United Methodists who had raised some serious questions about GBCS policies and positions, Dr. Fassett responded with a form letter.
In his letter, after addressing the issues of homosexuality and welfare, Dr. Fassett engaged the problem of abortion. Here is his paragraph on abortion: "Finally, the issue of late term abortions, often referred to as partial-birth abortions.
Dr. Fassett's paragraph on abortion states very clearly that, according to The Book of Discipline, the official United Methodist position on abortion is pro-choice or pro-Roe v. Wade. And pro-choice, in Dr. Fassett's reading, means that The United Methodist Church is opposed to any and all legal protections for the unborn and mother. To be sure, Dr. Fassett states in his letter that, as far as he is concerned, "there can be nothing more repugnant than abortion no matter which method is employed " And he adds that "the issue of late-term abortions is even more me." And he notes again that he does not support late-terms abortions. Still, his bottom line is this: The United Methodist Church stands for the legal choice of abortion without restriction, without qualification. In other words. according to Dr. Fassett. The United Methodist Church is more dedicated to protecting abortion-on-demand in America than protecting unborn children and their mothers from abortion .
Just today, a bright, engaged, evangelical brother in the ordained ministry of our church mentioned to this editor that he thought the official United Methodist position on abortion was acceptable, if not perfect. Little did he realize that our disciplinary paragraph is interpreted, in a rigidly pro-choice way, by the denominational powers that be. Little did he know how our disciplinary paragraph is used, by Dr. Fassett and others, to oppose the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act that has been passed by the United States House of Representative and by the United States Senate by wide margins.
Unfortunately, this brother is not alone. There are many faithful United Methodists who say, "All we need to do, on abortion, is abide by what the Discipline says. However, Dr. Fassett's statement, founded on the Discipline, indicates very clearly that The Book of Discipline is at least ambiguous, and at most in error, on abortion.
Dr. Fassett's position on abortion, which is based on The Book of Disciplines is similar to the position taken by Mario Cuomo, the former governor of New York.
Regarding abortion, both Fassett and Cuomo are "personally opposed, but..." That is, they are personally opposed to abortion; however, legally speaking, they favor choice in an uncompromising way.
Thomas a Kempis continues to instruct with such as this: "If you try to find rest in this world, how will you ever reach that rest which is life everlasting?

Rev. Thom Fassett , General Secretary of the United Methodist Board of Church and Society said , Forcing state-controlled prayer into the public schools violates the rights of children whose families are practicing members of minority religions..
Despite its early success , the bill's future remains uncertain.No date has been set for floor action.Even if approved by the necessary two-thirds majority in the House and then the Senate , the bill would still require ratification by at least 34 state legislatures to become law.
