So called “pro-lfe” advocates insist that abortion is against God’s will.
They insist that “life begins at conception.”
They believe that a zygote is a human being.
That a fertilized egg has a soul.
But when asked to defend such ludicrous propositions, none can point to anything in the Bible which supports their position.
Nothing in the Ten Commandments about abortion.
Nothing in the words of Jesus about abortion.
None of the epistles of Paul mentions abortion.
One would have thought that God would have foreseen all this abortion going on and would have at least had a word or two to say on the subject.
But, He didn’t.
In fact, the Bible has a lot more to say on the subject of the Earth being flat than it has to say about abortion or birth control, two of the most enthusiastic issues for the lunatic “pro-life” crowd.
The fact is that the “pro-life” movement is a creation of the radical right. In the 70s, facing a growing feminist movement which was attracting even moderate women to its ranks, conservatives needed an issue to divide women. Enter the “pro-life” movement!
Until 1972, even the ultra Conservative Southern Baptist Convention supported abortion.
Then, one Sunday, the right wing preachers got the memo.
Abortion is murder!
Liberals defy God!
Feminists are butchers!
The lunatics had taken over the asylum.
