Common Ground? Does He Think We’re Stupid?
I’m in favor of funding birth control pills and other contraceptives, because I believe God would prefer BC over ending the lives of a millions of babies. I’m only bringing God into the equation because my opposition is constantly calling me a crazy, right-wing, religious nut.
If you search through my archives on abortion, I’ve never used religion or God in the abortion debate — mainly because religion is irrelevant. Whether or not you believe in God, abortion still ends lives.
I’m getting really sick and tired of the government funding of Planned Parenthood, meanwhile independent organizations like Birth Right are often left to raise money through private donations. At least birth right is independent, interdenominational, and not affiliated with any religious or political group or public agency.
Birthright isn’t in the business of promoting (re: making money from) abortion. I fully believe that Planned Parenthood needs restructuring. Too often their practices are found to be involved in scandal. It’s like PP is in cahoots with the pro-choice movement. When I saw the video below, I grew even angrier.
Common ground, my ass.
