Thank God for Abortion? Culture of Death in the USA, Featuring Pro-Abortion Prayer
When a speaker refers to God as “Lord of the Dance” and uses the personal pronoun she for God, ostensibly in a prayer, we might suspect that something might be amiss.
Especially when she calls abortion “the blessing of choice” and prays that women in developing nations could have better access to abortion.
According to the Washington Examiner,
“Midge Slater, an organizer for the Iowa Alliance for Retired Americans, part of the Iowa Federation of Labor and the AFL-CIO, spoke to about 80 people who came to the capitol to protest a proposal that the State Board of Medicine end a program that allows doctors to prescribe an abortion pill for a woman after a video chat, rather than an in-person consultation.”
She asks “God” to “protect the goodness that we are capable of”, i.e., providing easy abortions for women.
Ms. Slater basically turns biblical morality and the respect for life on its head. However, twisting the meaning of words in an Orwellian manner will not turn killing into a blessing.
The “prayer” reminds one of what PZ Myers, a well-known atheist, has said of abortion.
The “Lord of the Dance” is certainly not the God of the Bible, who regards death as an intruder and an enemy.
