Planned Parenthood Tells Women God Is Fine With Having An Abortion
Breitbart ^ | 23 May 2014 | by DR. SUSAN BERRY

Posted on 05/24/2014 1:03:38 AM PDT by kingattax

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has stepped into the pastoral counseling business: A letter sent by the organization's Clergy Advocacy Board lets prospective clients know that God is fine with their decision to have an abortion.

Planned Parenthood’s “Pastoral Letter to Patients” states:

The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, you’re not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, we’re here to support you in your decision.

Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures—Jewish or Christian—and there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.

The beliefs of each person are deserving of respect, and each person deserves care and compassion, [sic] No one should be allowed to force their faith teachings on anyone else. “God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide,” the letter states.

Wow! Killing someone is personal! Does that make it okay? Sometimes the reasoning of these folks is beyond reasonable.

Maybe if they actually read the Bible, they might believe differently or at the very least understand why others might disagree.

Yes, Isaiah 5:20 certainly applies here.

I guess “Thou Shall Not Kill” is just too ambiguous for the sleaze bags at Planned Parenthood?!?

I doubt God is okay with the killing of nascent, human life.

Well, at least Toni is thinking very deeply about cause and possible effects of her action. Still, I don’t know if she has any other children. Even if she believes this in her heart, she should not publicize it. Some autistic have almost normal intelligence, at least about certain things and in certain environments. One of her kids may read that statement and feel like a Mother’s worst burden. I have met some women who view aborting a healthy baby to be purely a matter of birth control and financial management.

Maybe Planned Parenthood’s god is OK with it. But they worship a very different god from the One I worship.

One day they will find out EXACTLY what GOD thinks about abortion.
I don't think OK or FINE will be will be part of the conversation.

I bet that these same clergy almost all oppose capital punishment. In other words, they are against punishing the guilty, but all in favor of killing the innocent.

If your pastor belongs to this group, shake the dirt off your shoes and get out.

A friend of mine is active in her church, but she’s fine with abortion and homosexuality. I don’t know if her church has the same views or if she just picks and chooses which commandments to follow. But it is disturbing that so many “devout” people have gone over to the dark side.

“The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures.”

The Sixth Commandment prohibits abortion.

These are a sign of the times we are in...it will get much worse before it gets better. Just wait, trust God and be prepared to help those who cannot help themselves. Open your heart and let God lead you.

I suppose they have to claim then that John the Baptist, who recognized Mary when he was still in the womb, wasn’t really a person yet?

If they want to wander into the metaphysical then maybe they should get their govt funding pulled. Separation of church and state and all.

"PLANNED PARENTHOOD TELLS WOMEN GOD IS FINE WITH HAVING AN ABORTION"

Genesis 3:1

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

Wow. Do they realize what BIG trouble they are going to be in with the homosexual mafia?

Funny how atheists are so quick to explain theology when it serves their purpose.

Augustine said, "If you believe what you like in the gospels and reject what you don't like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself."

God is never fine with letting someone reach into your womb and cutting a growing human being out and killing it. No matter what you choose to call it, it is murder of a baby. To pretend to have a bunch of clergy tell you it is okay ia really bad. It is the worst thing I have ever seen. Who are these clergy? What are their names? What is their background? If you look at that, you will come to realize that you have been had. Pay attention! Abortion is murder! There is nothing else. It is the murder of your own flesh and blood.
