Our polar opposite, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, has been around for a long time. But recently, I’ve noticed an uptick in abortion advocates using religious language in their propoganda. Take this bizarre little gem, from RH Reality Check:
Tiller finds good company among the ancient prophets who spoke truth to power, who kept on keeping-on with the faith that one day justice shall “roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.”
Our moral center never died. And, with each abortion delivered in compassion and care, George Tiller . . . [is] resurrected.
“Reality Check” is the most inappopriate name I can think of for this blog of pro-abortion, pseudo-religious fantasies.
Then there’s the recent dedication of the Houston abortion supercenter, which an official called “sacred and holy ground.”
Abortion advocate Florynce Kennedy is perhaps best known for her quote “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” Now it seems that a new faith is emerging in which abortion is the chief sacrament! Why the shift from painting pro-lifers as religious to painting themselves that way? My theory: their reputation as the “logical” or “scientific” side of the debate is falling apart, so they’re grasping at straws. Alternatively, they might actually believe the nonsense they’re spouting: a pretty terrifying thought, if you ask me.
