Skip to comments.‘My Congregation Trusts Women’: Progressive Faith Groups Counter Anti-Abortion Narratives (barf)

On a scorching afternoon in mid-July, clergy members gathered outside a small unmarked building tucked away in a business complex in North Austin. They filed inside, up the stairs, and into the waiting room of the Whole Womans Health abortion clinic. There, Christian and Jewish leaders stood in a circle and sang phrases in chorus: Hallelujah. Do not fear. You are loved. Bless this room. Bless this womb.
The 20 or so people had assembled not to protest, but to bless the clinic, burning sage in the exam rooms and reading patient and staff testimonials.

What faith does a progressive have though?
Satanism, paganism and other trendy ones of course. Then I guess some may even create their own “christian” god by leaving out the word and justifying all.

Hint: You want to know why God commanded the Israelites to kill all the Canaanites? It was the sacrifice of their children to Moloch and the Baals.
I wouldn’t want to be that ‘Reverend’ standing in front of Jesus on Judgment day.
They “trust” women to be completely incapable of controlling their own fertility, and support deceiving women about pregnancy to prevent them from becoming baby machines.
If they genuinely trusted women, they would be educating women on pregnancy, facts about fetal development, and options to prevent pregnancy. The actions of the pro-abort advocates show they do not trust women with knowledge or autonomy. They just want to preserve the ill-gotten profits of the abortion industry.
If women truly controlled their bodies they wouldn’t need abortions.
