Abortion supporters have stepped up their efforts to promote the killing of unborn babies as a "part of God's plan" and in keeping with Christian doctrine. This new propaganda tactic ranges from street demonstrations by groups of apostate religious leaders who advocate abortion to the widespread publication of pro-abortion videos using children and religious themes.
The popular video series Kids Meet published a video titled "Kids Meet Someone Who’s Had An Abortion" in the last week of December that quickly went viral on YouTube and social media. In the video, Amelia Bonow, who founded the "Shout Your Abortion" movement, sits with various children to deliver her pro-abortion message.
She engages with them in a perverse question and answer session about her abortion after she got pregnant and "didn't really want to have a baby." Bonow promotes her perceived right to end the life of her unborn child because she doesn't believe that life begins until a baby is born.
She works hard to fill the minds of children of all ages with her extreme views on so-called choice and, at one point, asks a teen boy whether he is religious and what he believes God's judgment on abortion is. After the boy struggles to justify Bonow's fervent love for abortion by saying that "God's fine with it because there are still babies being born”, Bonow is quick to agree that she thinks "it's all part of God's plan."
In the truly uncomfortable video, abortion becomes not the difficult choice defended for decades by pro-choice radicals, but instead a laudable act that she is both proud of and eager to share with the world. By stating that her abortion, and all other abortions, are "part of God's plan" she is attempting to redefine Christianity and the Word of God to justify the killing of innocent infants, but in this she is not alone.
In 2014, the Washington Post published an article by ordained ministers Harry Knox and Alethea Smith-Withers titled "Reverends Like Us Should Never Oppose Access to Abortion or Sex Ed." In this radical op-ed, Knox and Smith-Withers claimed that their religious belief is what supports their endorsement of abortion and contraception. It is this twisted perversion of Biblical teachings that then began to surface regularly in the following years byway of public demonstrations in support of abortion by "religious leaders".
In 2015, an abortion facility in Ohio was the site for a bizarre and blasphemous blessing on behalf of the staff who dedicate their lives to ending the lives growing inside vulnerable mothers. The gathering of 15 apostate Episcopal, United Methodist and Jewish religious figures provided a blessing to "thank God for abortion providers."
In what may at first seem like satire because it is so backwards, the afore-mentioned Harry Knox issued a statement on behalf of the group saying, "We gathered here today because far too many religious people forget that God’s love is steadfast. I’m here today standing alongside my fellow clergymen and clergywomen to say, ‘Thank God for abortion providers.'" Knox is the president of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), a group dedicated to supporting abortion.
Lara Young, an event organizer for the "blessing" and a United Methodist minister, told reporters, "The religious right has really hijacked the conversation on this issue, and we need to let women know that there are people of faith who are in favor of safe and legal abortion."
In January of 2017, a group of roughly two dozen religious leaders supposedly representing Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism gathered in Washington D.C. to offer a blessing to an abortion clinic that had opened nearby a few months earlier.
LaruaMeyeres, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, used this blessing to justify her work with abortions, telling reporters, "In almost every message to our staff, I talk about our doing sacred work. This confirms the sacredness of the work we do."
Serina Floyd, the medical director of the abortion facility echoed this sentiment when she said, "Now I can tell patients that this is a blessed space."
Lending this air of spiritual and religious approval to a clearly sinful act of murder is no empty gesture. Young,desperate women arriving to such a clinic are vulnerable to this manipulation and such "blessings" have doubtless resulted in the loss of more innocent life inside women who accept these blasphemies.
November of 2018 saw a gathering outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Ohio, again by the RCRC, and on their webpage for the event they claim that "Many faith leaders and people of faith hold that accessing and providing abortions are good and godly decisions."
The facility they gathered to support, the East Columbus Surgical Center, offers abortions up to 19 weeks and 6 days into the pregnancy. At this point, the baby is about the size of a banana, responds to sounds, has begun to swallow, can suck, grasp with his or her hands, and has a digestive system.
The promotion of abortion as "God's plan" is a dangerous example of blasphemy that must be opposed whenever it is spoken or published, but the trend to cloak sin in the guise of Christianity, or other religions, is an unfortunate product of this post modern age.
The enemies of Christ increasingly use the trappings of Christianity to oppose its most basic ideals and by supporting abortion, blaspheme God.
