In recent opinion columns, a Planned Parenthood board member has claimed that abortion is a sacred gift, and that nonbelievers have reasons to celebrate since Christianity is in decline.
Valerie Tarico is a member of Planned Parenthoods Board of Advocates, whichaccording to the boards websiteis a 400-member body of individuals united by their personal integrity and commitment to the Planned Parenthood mission. Among other responsibilities, Board of Advocates members writ[e] articles, blog posts, or statements in support of Planned Parenthood.
Tarico, whose writing has appeared in outlets such as Salon, AlterNet, and the Huffington Post, routinely writes about her opposition to Christian beliefs and values. In an opinion piece last June, she wrote, its tempting to think that Christian conservatives have reached some new pinnacle of hating women and sexuality.
In a Huffington Post article last January, Tarico claimed that abortion is a sacred gift. She also encouraged people to honor women who decide to terminate pregnancies and honor doctors who provide abortion services, since they are doing Gods work.
An abortion when needed is a blessing, Tarico posited. It is a gift, a grace, a mercy, a cause for gratitude, a new lease on life. Being able to choose when and whether to bring a child into the world enables us and our children to flourish.
In one of Taricos most recent articles, initially published on AlterNet in late December, she lists ten reasons why she believes that Christianity is in decline.
Things are looking bright for those who would like to see humanity more grounded in science and reason, Tarico asserts.
The facts Tarico cites to support her claim vary significantly, but they include the secularization of millenials, the increasing outspokenness of skeptics, and the societys departure from Biblical values.
Todays young women and men are making the Bible writers look as if they were members of a tribal, Iron Age culture in which women were property like livestock and childrento be traded, sold and won in battle, Tarico alleges.
Tarico also claims that Christian denominations are declining in influence due to their cruelty, bigotry and ignorance.
In response to Taricos assertions, Matt Barber, a popular author and freelance columnist, wrote in a column for WND that such claims from nonbelievers are nothing new.
When the atheist gives voice to his or her God-denial, Barber writes, it provides those in Truth a small glimpse into the same dark spiritold as Adamthat prompted the psalmist to observe: The fool says in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good (Psalm 14:1).
Barber points out that true freedom cannot be found in human reasoning or atheism, but only in Jesus Christas explained in Galatians 5:1.
Without Christ, there is no freedom, Barber states. There is only death.
When God-deniers like Ms. Tarico dig in their heels, he continues, a pitiable paradox occurs. While they think theyve achieved intellectual enlightenment and freedom, they have, instead, been played for the fool. They have become slaves to the flesh, and playthings to the enemy.
Ultimately, Barber concludes, there is no autonomy. In the end we each belong to one Master or the other. Ms. Tarico, the end is just the beginning. And eternity is a very long time.
Wha... wow... Evil is alive and well on our planet, and these death mongers are the encapsulation of everything evil.
Child sacrifice is a feminazi “sacrament”. Sick!
Where’s a picture of the satanic hag? Let’s see her composted leg and underarm hair.
there is nothing whatsoever ‘sacred’ about abortion
that’s for sure!
these are very evil people
and right now they and their comrades have seized power
pray for America!
I suppose if one worships molech then abortion would be sacred. For the rest of it it is blasphemy and murder.
Has anyone asked them about the God they worship? It can't be the Christian God.
No, only babies are dying thanks to evil’s like you.
This is an evil, vicious woman.
The Left mocks Christianity (Christ) yet they employ the language and articles of faith, their pagan faith.
The Left lives by faith that they themselves are supreme and there is nothing higher than themselves.
The Left lives by the creed that they are gods and thus we see them mock and diminish anyone who dare seeks to dethrone them from the very throne that they have established and set themselves upon.
They should IMO run around with badges of pride that number their abortions.
What they can never bring themselves to discuss is the human body that they seek to destroy as a sacrifice on the alter of self.
You've had that choice all along, Sparky. Birth control is readily available and highly effective. And there's always the option of keeping your legs together.
She also encouraged people to honor women who decide to terminate pregnancies and honor doctors who provide abortion services, since they are doing Gods work.Pro-aborts are now losing their minds right along with their hearts. See my tagline; fight from the chapel.
Most of the babies aborted are black. Does that make her a racist?
“Tarico also claims that Christian denominations are declining in influence due to their cruelty...”
As opposed to the tender, loving way babies are burned and/or torn apart during abortions, you know.
She spins off of Pelosi’s remark, during her decline to discuss with reporters, her opposition to the Church deploring abortion, saying that was “sacred ground”.
Language is being turned on its head for a purpose, and it can be traced back not only to warnings in scripture, but also to the modernist Alinsky methodology.
Hillary or her campaign voiced these intentions, I believe, in her senate campaign. (The Dems needed to learn church-speak and churchy phraseology to couch their Marxist crap, to attract the Christian rubes with pudding for brains.)
Holy cow, I am speechless,
and now the satanist are building a statue to set next to the ten commandment.
and that nonbelievers have reasons to celebrate since Christianity is in decline.
Well the problem for you is that in the end it is not about Christianity but about God. God is still in control.
The Elevator to total depravity has just descended through the basement floor.
just google “radfem piv”....then realize the mentality of some women.
It appears a needed abortion was missed ..pity
The last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it.
