The abortion business Planned Parenthood managed to find a few clergy to help promote its pro-abortion agenda in a new video.
Planned Parenthood is desperate for support after Americans elected a large group of pro-life leaders to the United States Congress last fall. Efforts to cut off millions of taxpayer funds to the abortion chain are under way.
In an appeal to religious individuals, Planned Parenthood produced a new video this week where four pro-abortion clergy members two Baptist pastors, a Unitarian Universalist pastor and a Jewish rabbi urged people to support the abortion business, according to the Daily Caller.
None of them mentioned the word abortion. Instead, they used terms like health care and reproductive justice to disguise how Planned Parenthoods No. 1 focus is killing unborn babies in abortions.
I believe that everybody should have access to health care, Pastor Timothy MacDonald III of First Iconium Baptist Church said in the video. When people of faith speak up for reproductive justice, compassion becomes the order of the day.
But health care comes second to abortion at Planned Parenthood. Earlier this year, the abortion groups leaders refused a offer for an increase in taxpayer funding to devote to health care because the condition was that they could no longer do abortions. CEO Cecile Richards called the offer obscene and insulting, making it very clear that abortions not womens health care are what Planned Parenthood is all about.
Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter.
In 2015, Planned Parenthood performed 328,348 abortions, nearly 5,000 more than the previous year. That same year, its prenatal services dropped almost 50 percent to 9,419, and adoption referrals, while up slightly, remained extremely low at 2,889.
Its patient numbers, contraception services, breast exams and cancer screenings are down, too, despite receiving taxpayer funding increases under President Barack Obamas administration.
Another pro-abortion clergy member in the video, Rev. Darcy Roake, a Unitarian Universalist minister who serves on the Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board, attempted to claim that religious people should care for others by supporting the No. 1 abortion business in the United States.
It is our role as children of God to care for our fellow men and women and the idea that theres just one monopoly on a religious voice, that is not true, Roake said.
Rabbi Lori Koffman of New York Citys Central Synagogue had a similar message: Everybody is entitled to dignity people need more access to healthcare, more access to contraception, more access to education. Everything about what Planned Parenthood does really speaks in my mind to Jewish religious ethical values.
Judaeo-Christian values teach that every human life is valuable and deserving of protection. Planned Parenthood does not protect lives; its key business is to destroy them and make money doing it.
How murdering innocent children can be twisted into worshiping God is a mystery these people will have to explain on Judgement Day.
In this case was Garden of Eden all over again. This time the snake was Margaret Sanger.
Ha there ever been a shortage of demonic clergy?
They aren’t pastors. Because they aren’t really Christians.
First Iconium is a large, and largely African-American church in Atlanta. Its website doesn't provide any denominational connection, so it may be an independent Baptist church, not Southern, American, or National Baptist. The pastor is well-connected in the liberal community; cf. http://www.firsticonium.org/meet-our-pastor.html.
I told a UU pastor his church was “old and white on the outside... and old and white on he inside...”
His head just about esploded.
Someday the only real churches following the Christ will be small groups of people meeting secretly in friend’s homes. Small Groups have been around for quite awhile. Their importance will only grow.
They are not Baptists. They may claim to be but they are not.
I have looked at a lot of church websites. You can get a good idea of what the church is like by doing so. The “About Us” link of the church told nothing about what the church believed. Nothing about its doctrines. Nothing about Jesus. It mainly dropped names of the liberal groups the pastor was associated with or got awards from.
Lol! A UU, a female “rabbi,” and “two Baptist pastors.” I wonder what color they are? [/sarcasm]
Back when Obama ran for president the first time, I checked out the website for his church. They weren’t big on mentioning Jesus or God either.
Lots of Baptists are no longer Baptists like Baptists used to be. Way too many want the collection plate full on Sundays and they don’t want to offend anyone who might be willing to drop a buck in the plate.
These people worship the idol molech.
It’s definitely not Southern Baptist.
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Matt. 7:15-20
How long before we see the canonization of the devoted St. Margaret of Sanger?
The blacks do not seem to realize Plan Parenthood started by Margaret Sanger had the goal of exterminating the black population in America. Neither do they seem to realize the Democrats were behind the KKK, segregation, and slavery.
Kill thosebabies, what harm to society could possibly cone from it?
Promote extramarital sex and homosexual experimentation at all stages of the life span.
Feminazis wanted to smash the church and now the church leaders willingly comply from within.
