In 1995, the ELCA Board of Pensions offered abortion benefit choices to ELCA Church Council, noting the ELCA's public position against abortion in their Social Statement on Abortion. Council chose abortion-on-demand up to 20 weeks for ELCA insureds. In 1997, the Churchwide Assembly knocked down an attempt to limit this abortion benefit. Many are unaware of this one, too.

I posed a question because I wasn't sure it was ELCA. May be PCUSA instead. But one of the liberal mainline denominations has been criticized for including abortion coverage in employees' insurance policies, and I was wondering if this was the one.
