 by Dr. Susan Berry 23 May 2014

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has stepped into the pastoral counseling business: A letter sent by the organization's Clergy Advocacy Board lets prospective clients know that God is fine with their decision to have an abortion.

Planned Parenthood’s “Pastoral Letter to Patients” states:

Quote

    The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, you’re not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, we’re here to support you in your decision.

    Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures—Jewish or Christian—and there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.

    The beliefs of each person are deserving of respect, and each person deserves care and compassion, [sic] No one should be allowed to force their faith teachings on anyone else.


“God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide,” the letter states.

The letter then invites women and young girls to contact their local Planned Parenthood health center for a referral to a clergyperson “who will be supportive of you and your decision.”

“Our hope for you is for peace in your heart,” the letter concludes.

According to Planned Parenthood’s Clergy Advocacy Board (CAB), its group of clergy members was launched in 1994 and “leads a national effort to increase public awareness of the theological and moral basis for advocating reproductive health and justice.”

“CAB members are dedicated pro-choice clergy from different denominations and communities throughout the U.S. who work with Planned Parenthood at the national and state levels to further the goal of full reproductive freedom for all women and men,” the CAB states.

In its “Statement of Beliefs,” the CAB says, “We believe that clergy have a special responsibility to bear witness in support of reproductive rights so that the public and their elected representatives may understand the theological and moral basis for reproductive rights.”

The statement continues, "We believe that both men and women have an inherent right to reproductive freedom, that this freedom includes the right to abortion, and that abortion is a complex moral and ethical issue that cannot be resolved by solutions that are simplistic or cruel."

Members of the Planned Parenthood CAB include: Chairperson Rabbi Jon Adland (Reform Jewish); Vice Chair Rev. Susan Russell (Episcopal); Rev. David Ames (Episcopal); Rev. Tom Davis (United Church of Christ); Rev. Dr. Gawain de Leeuw (Episcopal); Rev. Kevin Jones (Baptist); Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter (Unitarian); Rev. Vincent Lachina (American Baptist); Rev. Jeremy Lopez, United Church of Christ; Rev. Janet Maykus (Christian Church DOC); Rev. Mark Pawlowski (Presbyterian); Rabbi Dennis Ross (Reform Jewish); Dr. Scott Sattler (Universal Sufism); Rabbi Peter Stein (Reform Jewish); and Ani Zonneveld (Muslims for Progressive Values).

"Listen, it's no problem.  These pastors talked to God and He's fine with it.  Sign here.  By the way, you're not allergic to rusty coat hangers, are you?  Oh, and on your way out, be sure to register to vote Democrat.  The nurse will have all the forms ready for you."

They must have missed the part where it says "thou shalt not kill."

I find it interesting when people who avoid the Scriptures (and anything remotely related to Christianity) like the plague presume to interpret them authoritatively.

Planned Parenthood Says God Supports Abortions

“Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion..."

Avatar of B. Christopher Agee   B. Christopher Agee — May 23, 2014



The left’s attempt to marginalize faith-based values and castigate believers has been relentless over the past several years. Anyone willing to speak out in support of God’s Word in public must be prepared to withstand an impending character assault by the vocal humanists who consider such values intolerant.

Planned Parenthood, whose implicit taxpayer-funded mission is the mass slaughter of unborn children, recently attempted to hijack religion as a way to coerce pregnant women into making the devastating decision to kill their own babies.
 
 



In a “Pastoral Letter to Patients,” the organization asserted that God does not mind the fact that developing life created in His image is being massacred by the millions in modern America.

The letter, endorsed by far-left members of the ‘clergy,’ states that the “decision to have an abortion is personal.”

According to the “religious leaders” who signed on to this outrageous disinformation campaign, the Bible does not strictly prohibit abortion, which must mean such butchery is permissible.

“Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion,” the letter alleges, stating that “there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.”

The fact that one can find a purported pastor who supports a particularly barbaric act, however, strikes many as a foolish way to ascertain God’s will. The evil practices of Westboro Baptist Church, for example, are seen by the vast majority of practicing Christians as a complete distortion of God’s message to His children.

Nevertheless, the letter concludes that, because “God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide,” a woman who chooses to murder her child “can find strength, understanding, and comfort in that love.”

While the Bible does promise that God is longsuffering and forgiving, that is hardly an excuse to encourage women to undergo a deadly procedure likely to haunt them for the rest of their lives.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

And God supports gay marriage too..... :thud:
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.

This could apply to anyone who was about to commit any sin.  Adolph, you are considering exterminating 6 million Jews?  Just know this.  God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide.  You can find strength, understanding, and comfort in that love.
