The Blessing of Abortion

I first heard of this news story from Much More Than Rubies and then read the article here at World Mag.

Katherine Ragsdale, the soon-to-be President of the Episcopal Divinity School, a major seminary near Harvard says that abortion is a blessing.  She even goes so far and says that abortion is holy work!  Here are some more quotes from the article:

"Ragsdale, though, says abortion is a "blessing," and not only in harsh situations but good ones: "When a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion—there is not a tragedy in sight—only blessing. The ability to enjoy God's good gift of sexuality without compromising one's education, life's work, or ability to put to use God's gifts and call is simply blessing."

This is what I've been talking about folks - this PERVERTED (twisted) view of children.  Instead of accepting the BIBLICAL view where God tells us they are a blessing and happy is the man that has a lot of them and in the New Testament that women should marry, BEAR CHILDREN, and guide the house..........its all twisted to fit the flesh.  Forget marriage - just live together.  Forget children - just take pills to mimic barrenness or kill them if they somehow get through your pills because ain't no baby going to ruin your plans and then spend your life thinking a career will fulfill you.  Surely God understands you can't be burdened down with his blessings - when he gives them to you, just kill them and tell God "no thanks".  Don't worry about the house, it can take care of itself and it isn't as fulfilling as filing papers in an office.

Notice how she glorifies 'God's good gift of sexuality', yet wants to leave out the part of what sex was intended for - reproduction.  God designed us that way and that was one of his first commands - be fruitful and multiply.  satan has twisted it so well to make people think that the things of this life (material), careers and education and the almighty dollar are where its at.

We who have been born again by the Spirit of God know that the only thing that fulfills is Christ.  Christ followers don't look for loopholes to fit their lifestyles, they don't live in sin any longer and they don't constantly seek ways to fulfill the lusts of the flesh.  These are the ways of the sinner - one who has never been delivered from sin.  "Loopholes to Hell" as Pastor put it this past week.

So very scary! It makes me sad to see how God's word is twisted like that. And to think how many people will "follow" this line of teaching!
It's a wise lessen and a sign for us to stand up for the Truth. Don't keep silent but voice our oppinions!
Keep up the good work Bev!

I am deeply upset by hearing this.
My Body had a natural abortion is what I call it.
My Beloved Husband I made a choice long ago after we had our Child to put me on a Birth Control shot. On the Shot I became pregnant and our Son never Properly Implanted so my body did what it thought was natural and Killed my Unborn Son.
I am still deeply hurt because I will not have any more children unless God provides a Might Miracle which I know he can. I have to live day in and day out thinking about what I did to my unborn son who would have been 8 this year.
I am still realing from the Effects of the Birth Control Shot.
Please Research all forms of Birth Control and Please Pray before you choose. I wish I would have known what would have happened. Now my Beloved Husband will never ever get to play Ball with his son or even take his Son Fishing.
There will be no one to carry on the last name.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Bev if you need to delet this I understand.
God Bless,

Why would I delete it? You are very right in sharing that. So many stories like yours I have heard over the years and its sad. More women like you need to share your stories to warn others of the dangerous risks with such. I applaud you sharing it. Thank you Mrs. Garcia. :)

Twocans - yes very twisted! Thanks for the comment! :)
