If we had the Christians on our side, abortion would be illegal in 5 minutes...

    The fact is, Christians are all over the place on abortion. All we really have in our corner are the evangelicals and the Catholics, and not even all of them.

    Some Christian denominations are actually PRO-ABORTION and a pastor will often counsel a girl or woman to abort her child instead of keep it.

    The corrupt and failing mainstream Protestant denominations are the worst offenders.

    Nonsense.

    It’s perfectly appropriate and consistent to oppose abortion based on religious beliefs while recognizing a woman’s right to privacy and opposing the state compelling women to give birth against their will.

    Simply find the means to end abortion that comports with the Constitution and privacy rights jurisprudence.

    There are other and more effective ways to end the practice of abortion besides ‘banning’ it.

    What percent of Americans are Christians?

    Abortion Is a Common Experience for U.S. Women, Despite Dramatic Declines in Rates
    Rates of Abortion Have Declined Among All Groups of Women, But Vary Considerably Between Them

    Nearly one in four women in the United States (23.7%) will have an abortion by age 45

    So...what does that tell you? Maybe you are the ones in the wrong on this issue. Maybe mainstream Protestant denominations are not all about controlling women's bodies like the MALE leaders of the Catholic Church and evangelicals are.

    Apparently, Cathlolics have this expectation that their priests will molest children.

    The so called Christians who embrace abortion are not Christians. The bible tells us about them..they are blasphemers, false prophets, and they are nothing of God.

    For me, babies are a gift from God, and if you are blessed with one then you were chosen by God to bring that baby into this Earth and to make sure it has the best life possible. When God provides the spark inside the womb and starts that precious life it's not our duty, our responsibility, or our right to choose whether it lives or dies in my opinion. Our country's adoption system is broken though in my opinion and really needs to be reformed and made more efficient.
