Welcome to Lifewatch
Lifewatch is the quarterly newsletter of the Taskforce of United Methodists on Abortion and Sexuality. We are dedicated to creating, in church and society, an esteem for human life at its most vulnerable, specifically for the unborn child and for the woman who contemplates abortion. Begun in 1987, Lifewatch is an unofficial voice of UMC laity and clergy encouraging United Methodists to live the Gospel of life to build a culture of life in the U.S.A. and the world.
“Lifewatch belongs to the National Pro-Life Religious Council. Rev. Frank Pavone is the President of NPRC. We are compelled and honored to share his “Open Letter to the Pastors of the United States” for you to read.”

Who speaks for The United Methodist Church? General Conference. Only General Conference! So states The Book of Discipline (2016) Paragraph 509.1 – “No person, no paper, no organization, has the authority to speak officially for The United Methodist Church, this right having been reserved exclusively to the General Conference under the Constitution.”
