Actor Stephen Baldwin: You Can't Call Yourself Christian and Support Abortion
A rare pro-life, conservative Christian voice in liberal Hollywood
While liberal Hollywood star Alec Baldwin regularly makes headlines for his far-left political views, his conservative Christian younger brother Stephen Baldwin can often be overshadowed.
And while the Baldwins all share a striking family resemblance, their beliefs couldn't be more different.
Stephen Baldwin is one of the few openly conservative voices in Hollywood, and perhaps far rarer, he's outspoken against abortion.
While many celebrities support agendas that hypocritically conflict with their supposed beliefs, Stephen Baldwin insists that you cannot call yourself a Christian if you support abortion.
During a February 2018 Facebook Live interview with Faithwire, Baldwin shared his pro-life beliefs, sharing his thoughts on people who consider themselves "pro-choice" concerning abortion rights but also claim to follow Jesus Christ.

“The Bible’s very clear,” Stephen said in the interview.
“The Word never changes. […] You can’t be pro-choice and call yourself a follower of Jesus Christ.
"Doesn’t go together. Just doesn’t go together.”
“It’s a fact. It’s a simple common sense fact.
"So, anybody who hears me say that and goes, ‘Well, hey, I’m a this type of Christian or this denomination and in our church it’s acceptable,’ I’m just going to say, ‘Well, whatever they’re teaching you according to God’s Word that has allowed you to believe that, is incorrect.’ It’s very simple,” he continued.
Stephen became a born-again Christian after the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
He says he firmly believes that supporting abortion goes against the principles of Christianity and the teachings of Jesus Christ, including God’s specific command to not kill.
He believes that science backs up his pro-life stance as well because of the “scientific evidence” that shows a fetus at 20 weeks feels pain.
“In the womb, a child at 20 weeks is alive and developed enough to feel pain,” said Baldwin.
The actor/producer/evangelist took personal issue with those who might nonchalantly argue that the current abortion law is permissible or acceptable.
He said that God gives us each choice and free will, but that when we choose abortion and other things that go against His teachings, he warned God would respond to that particular way of thinking in society.
The actor stressed that it's not enough to just throw one's hands up and say it's "acceptable" because that's "the laws of our land."
In April 2019, Stephen called out his own famous brother, Alec Baldwin, after the older sibling signed a petition in protest of Georgia’s pro-life “heartbeat” bill.

“for so long I’ve sat back & trusted God as my own family members have perpetrated the spirit of hate … through abortion,” Stephen wrote on Twitter.

Noted Trump-supporter Stephen Baldwin has also slammed his older brother Alec's impression of the president on Saturday Night Live.
When asked about his big brother’s impression after a debate shortly before the 2016 election, Stephen Baldwin said:
"I think it’s getting a little too nasty right now.
"I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: What do I think about Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of Donald Trump and SNL and everything they’re doing?
"I don’t want to be a party pooper here, but I don’t think it’s very funny.
"I don’t think there’s anything funny about this election.”
After that, Baldwin pivoted to the serious matters at hand and implored millennials and undecided voters to really consider the choice at hand.
In the last few years, Baldwin, who is also a director, producer, and author, has focused heavily on ministry, charitable good works, and humanitarian works.
According to his book, The Unusual Suspect, the famous Baldwin brother became a born-again Christian after the 9/11 attacks and has been doing ministry ever since.
Admittedly, not one to normally speak about politics, Baldwin wholeheartedly endorsed his former "Apprentice" boss from the beginning of Trump's campaign.
As he said in his previous interview, he still believes Trump is doing a great job as the 45th president of the United States.
