Oklahoma has a chance to be the pro-life, God-fearing state it has claimed to be all these years while hypocritically regulating the murder of the unborn, even by self-proclaimed pro-life advocates. They have that opportunity by God’s grace if they elect abolitionist Dan Fisher as governor, but ahead of the 2018 elections, billboards are going up in Oklahoma declaring “God loves those who have abortions.”
The point of the billboards is not to point women to the Gospel of Jesus Christ that commands women repent of murdering their babies and trust in Christ and obey him, but rather instead of focusing on that, the goal is to tell women that it’s perfectly fine to dismember, decapitate, burn and suck the life out of their babies in their wombs.
In other words, it’s the devil talking, “God loves you no matter what, you can sin all you like, even murdering your own child.” It is designed to make women feel comfortable killing their babies in order to baby murder mills and hired hitmen (abortion doctors) to make a few hundred bucks, and then sell their children’s body parts for extra cash.
The group behind the billboards is the pro-baby murder organization called Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice.
Now, that sounds highly moral, doesn’t it? The use of the term justice is actually a slap in the face of justice for the murdered unborn though.
“In short, we believe you can support abortion rights because of your faith, not in spite of it,” the group wrote on its blog.
I know that’s what they believe but why? What Scripture are they going to point to that says it’s ok to murder? God is clear about that:
You shall not murder. Exodus 20:13
Other texts could be cited that expound on how murder is carried out against the innocent, but that command is central to all others.
An abortion-rights group says rabbis and ministers support several billboards in the Oklahoma City area that say God loves women who have had abortions.
The Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice says the messages went up Monday. Spokeswoman Emma Newberry-Davis says the billboards will be up for a month and weren’t timed to coincide with any political activity, but noted they coincide with confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Abortion-rights advocates fear Kavanaugh will tilt the high court to the right, possibly reversing or weakening the 1973 decision establishing a woman’s right to have an abortion.
The group also plans to run digital and radio ads with the same message and hopes to drum up news media attention. The billboards went up Monday and are slated to be up for a month, spokeswoman Emma Newberry-Davis said.
The project has the support of several Jewish rabbis and non-denominational church ministers in the area, according to the report.
Weirdly, in its defense of abortion, the pro-abortion group claimed some faith traditions do not just accept and respect abortion but “mandate” it.
“In nearly every major faith tradition there are circumstances when abortion is an accepted and respected choice. There are even times when it is a mandate. When individuals seek to universally end or limit abortion rights for all women based on a particular understanding of God, faith, or religion, others suffer. Just as some faithful may choose not to end a pregnancy based on an understanding of faith and God, others may choose abortion consistent with the teachings of faith and under the guidance of a loving relationship with God.”
There is no faith, much less a major religion, that mandates that women abort their unborn babies.
As to suffering, the argument fails when presented with scientific evidence that unborn babies are living, unique human beings and faith-based evidence that they are valuable creatures to God. In Judaeo-Christian teachings, babies in the womb also are created in God’s image and deserving of the same protections as human beings who are born.
The pro-abortion group is right that God loves women who have had abortions, but many people of faith reject that God loves abortions. Instead, they believe that every human being, born and unborn, is a valuable creature in God’s eyes.
