A Few Thoughts on Abortion and Planned Parenthood Videos

Three day old human embyro. Image from The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI’ve been asked to give my take on the Planned Parenthood videos.When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s mission, to provide healthcare to women, I am 100% in their corner. Providing abortions is a small part of Planned Parenthood’s services, and defunding Planned Parenthood would have a deleterious effect on the health of poor women. Attempts to defund Planned Parenthood are driven by religious belief and bad science. We live in a secular state, one that supposedly separates church and state and one that values science; yet, when it comes to abortion, the debate is framed by religious claims that result … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Throwing Shade on Korea, ISIS and Abortion Because Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Mourning Over What Grieves ChristEditor's note: Colin is in rare form in this post. He manages to order others to mourn for things, claims to know what makes Jesus mourn and manages to be racist, paranoid anti-government and blaming of others in four short paragraphs. That takes talent! (/sarcasm). Seriously, there a whole lot of judging, blaming and shaming in his words. Is it really necessary to say those things to ask others to do more intercessory prayer? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Believe Doctors?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from Preparing To Be A Help Meet.Com - Pregnant With CancerEditor's note: So now Debi is denigrating doctors, people highly educated in the scientific field medicine as not being credible. Guessing what what little she's saying about the situation of the mother that the mother was advised to either abort the baby or deliver very early in order to have the best odds for surviving the cancer. It's a hard choice and one that each person needs to approach on their own, decide what they can or cannot live with and make without someone with zero knowledge and education, like Debi, shaming them. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]

Now the clinic is asking that they agree to a selective reduction if more than two embryos implant. Adeye is having none of that. Because Jesus. … [Read more...]
