Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Baptist Lead Rally for Abortion

Most leaders in Judaeo-Christian faiths believe scripture teaches that all human lives are valuable and deserving of protection.

But there are some who stray from the teaching and promote abortion.

A group of New York state clergy members recently advocated for abortion at the state capital, Christian News Network reports.

Together, abortion activists who identify as Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopalian, Baptist, Unitarian and Jewish urged New York state lawmakers to support abortion and Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in the United States, according to the report.

“As pastors, we believe in New Yorkers’ ability to get the health care that is supported by their religious teachings and personal beliefs,” director Dennis Ross, a Reformed Jewish rabbi, told the Legislative Gazette. “People of all faiths believe in safe and legal abortion, access to contraception and sex education, and we know Planned Parenthood is an essential healthcare provider.”

Sara Hutchinson Ratcliff of the group Catholics for Choice, which is not affiliated with the Catholic Church, also participated in the event in Albany. . . . Read More

What is their reason for saying they are of a certain religion when they don't follow or believe in the teachings of that religion, is it for some leg up in their business, a way to network? Just lose the label, be honest with the world, you are a self centered, egotistic, who brings others down with what you do and say.

There is no political party that represents Catholics, but the Democrat party is the worst one for a Catholic to support. Traditionally they were the better party, but that has changed drastically since 1973.

I changed parties this year, because we had some issues in the state that needed to be nipped in the bud so to speak, but as an optimist I could no longer tell myself that a party who condoned abortion was the party for me.

"...abortion activists who identify as Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopalian, Baptist, Unitarian and Jewish urged New York state lawmakers to support abortion and Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in the United States, according to the report." They may IDENTIFY as those religions but if they support the killing of unborn babies in their mother's wombs, they are liars and heretics.

Karen, that has always confused me too, but they are almost always Democrats, so I suppose it is a way to send a signal, "I am both a person of faith and a member of the Democrat party, so those *other* people over there are extremists." You choose where you stand however, and God will not be mocked.

Who were they, whom do they represent. Mainline Protestantism lost the plot many decades ago. Methodists did back off as a voting denomination recently. So-called liberalism as G.K. Chesterton sais in not liberal. Its stiflngly constricting of all freeedom of thought and choice
