Black minister with Planned Parenthood calls abortion a God given right
Earlier this month, abortion giant Planned Parenthood invited two Black supporters of abortion-on-demand to share about their support for child killing in Ohio, one of whom said she was a minister.
They were opposing Ohio’s pro-life Heartbeat legislation which was coming up for a vote. HB248 would generally prohibit an abortion of an unborn human individual with a detectable heartbeat. The heartbeat is detected usually around six weeks gestation.
Speaking for abortion giant Planned Parenthood which was founded in eugenic racism was an African American mother of six who said that her decision to have an abortion should not be judged.
Samantha Williams began her speech on the south lawn of the Ohio Statehouse by saying, “I am here because I want our politicians to trust women…and to not judge us for the decisions we make.”
Williams told the reporters who came to the press conference that she had six children, “For some people that’s a large family,” she said, “On any given day someone would question why I would have so many children. If they were to learn I’d had an abortion they also would wonder what difference would one more would have made.”
She went on to explain her abortion, “The right thing for me and my family at that time was to have an abortion. I went to counseling with a healthcare professional and with the support of my family. I looked at it from every angle, I made my choice and I moved on…Just like everyone doesn’t agree with my decision to have six children, some people do not agree with my decision to abort a child. But at the end of the day it was my choice to make…No one should be forced to carry a pregnancy to term if she doesn’t want to.”
Next up was another African American woman who said she is an ordained minister within the United Church of Christ. She also opposed restricting abortion because it discriminated against the poor, “Laws that limit or prohibit abortion are neither just nor enforceable. But they do have the distinct effect of discriminating against the poor…Abortion simply must be medically safe and legally available to all women.”
The so-called minister went on to push abortion as a matter of faith and belief in God, “Abortion is a matter of faith, conscience and justice…There are as many different points of view and beliefs as there are denominations, clergy and faith leaders. Yet there is broad consensus, that a women’s right to make decision about her own reproductive life is God given…The idea that because a person is religious that person must be rabidly anti-abortion is radically false. I and many other persons of faith believe that a woman should have access to compassionate abortion care…For 40 years, clergy from many traditions have supported a woman’s right to exercise moral agency, have prayed with women as they made difficult decisions and have stood with them at the intersection of faith and policy…The question of when life begins is a matter of science to some and theology to others…”
My guess is that this alleged minister does not read her Bible.
