The empirical theological question whether and how the churches mediate and facilitate the functioning of Christian religion in our society is applied to the religious influence on the acceptance or rejection of abortion in this article. We depart from historic data concerning the teachings of the Dutch churches on abortion. These help to formulate the research problem of this study: does the role of religion differentiate between church-members and non-members in the explanation of the attitude towards abortion? Next, the theoretical and empirical knowledge we have, is summarized in a theoretical model to explain the attitude towards abortion. Then we describe the data we used and the operationalization of the model. Thereafter the results of the empirical analysis are presented: church-membership seems to be an important condition to explain the acceptance or rejection of abortion. We conclude with a discussion of the results.
