Methodists take population control seriously in their missionary work.
This is a couple of takeaways from Social Principles UMC:
As people of faith, we are called to educate ourselves about the interconnectedness of life’s critical concerns and live as responsible stewards. The church can address these complex population-related issues on several fronts. We call on:
1. all United Methodists to access educational opportunities that focus on the issue of population and its inter-relatedness to other critical issues such as poverty, disease, hunger, environment, injustice, and violence, and to promote these opportunities in the local church;
2. United Methodist medical and mission facilities around the world to provide a full range of reproductive health and family planning information and services;
