Christians and Abortions By Mrs Vera West

     Now here is an interesting one:

“A recent article in the Times-Standard out of Humboldt County, California, took aim at pro-lifers, alleging that they oppose abortion because they think “human sexuality is something to be ashamed of.” This bizarre opinion piece was written by Rev. Bryan Jessup of Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Church in Bayside, California, and trotted out tired, pro-choice rhetoric that Christians wish to “impose” anti-abortion morality based on religion. “Regarding the 40- day protest in Eureka,” the reverend wrote, “people need to know that not all religions believe that human sexuality is something to be ashamed of. They need to know that some ways of faith regard sexuality as a blessing to be carefully enjoyed between people — even if they aren’t married or heterosexual.” Jessup went on to assert that freedom of religion means that “people whose faith allows them more freedom around their sexuality are also free to do as they see fit” because the United States is a secular nation.”

     The claims are interesting because they are so deranged and illogical. Even if it was true that Christians were  prudish about sex, maybe that is a good thing given the sexual excesses which we have had to put up with since the 1960s so-called sexual liberation movement? Surely it balances things up? Further, claims about sexuality are irrelevant to the abortion debate because this debate is concerned with the end product of sexual intercourse – a new life, and its rights. You see, for the liberal, rights can be given out freely to all matter of outsiders, murderers, rapists and the like, but the innocent foetus, well that can be destroyed as part of a “woman’s choice.” It is a logically incoherent position, even “racist.”
