This Sunday, the Freedom From Religion Foundation will be running full-page ads in two newspapers — the Tulsa World (OK) and Wichita Eagle (KS) — to tackle the question, “What does the bible really say about abortion?”
Turns out God is a big fan of it. Hell, he’ll even kill newborn babies if it suits His needs.
Life begins at birth — with the first breath (Gen 2:7)
Fetuses are not persons (Ex 21:22-25)
Fetuses should be aborted as proof of adultery (Num 5:11-31)
Life is not sacred (Deut 28: 18-24)
God will rip open pregnant mothers-to-be (2 Kings 8:12)
Israelite King Menahem ripped open pregnant women (2 Kings 15:16)
God will kill unborn fetuses (Isa 13:18)
God will destroy fetuses in utero (Hos 9:10-16)
God will dash infants in pieces and rip open pregnant women (Hos 13:16)
God slaughtered millions of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses during Noah’s flood, the conquest of Canaan, Sodom and Gomorrah and 20 major slaughters.
A dozen bible verses referring to the developing fetus do not condemn abortion.
God, Jesus, Moses and Paul did not prohibit abortion.
The bible is silent about the fact that two-thirds of conceived embryos fail to implant or are spontaneously aborted. That would make a deity in charge of nature history’s greatest abortionist. It’s clear the bible shows an utter disregard for human life.
Someone needs to make signs with these verses whenever there’s a pro-life rally, just to see all the double-takes.
The point is that you can cherry pick the Bible to support whatever position you have. The Bible is no more pro-life than it is pro-Ted Cruz and pro-gun. It’s just a matter of choosing some verses and ignoring others.
If only we could see the reactions from readers in Oklahoma and Kansas when they open their papers this weekend.
