16,000 Pro-Life Christians Oppose Drilling in the Arctic Refuge
(Evangelical Environmental Network) Over 16,000 pro-life Christians from across the country have recently signed a petition asking that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge be protected from drilling. The reason they are speaking out is because they are “called by God to be a steward of America’s majesty.” And the Arctic Refuge is one of the most majestic places in our nation.
Unfortunately, the Arctic Refuge has never been more imperilled. After four decades of attempts, last year drilling proponents succeeded in attaching an amendment allowing drilling to a must-pass spending bill. Even past staunch Republican defenders of the Arctic Refuge voted the wrong way this time.
