Young explained her acceptance of abortion like this: “Christianity, like most faiths, is founded on love.
It is. So how is abortion ‘Love’ in any way shape or form?
“Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord, who even before he was born, and then just after birth, experienced the world’s rejection. And every elderly person…even if he is ill or at the end of his days, bears the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded, as the ‘culture of waste’ suggests!”
“Among the vulnerable for whom the church wishes to care with particular love and concern are unborn children, the most defenseless and innocent among us. Nowadays efforts are made to deny them their human dignity and to do with them whatever one pleases, taking their lives and passing laws preventing anyone from standing in the way of this. …Precisely because this involves the internal consistency of our message about the value of the human person, the church cannot be expected to change her position on this question… It is not ‘progressive’ to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life…”
“All of us must care for life, cherish life, with tenderness, warmth…to give life is to open (our) heart, and to care for life is to (give oneself) in tenderness and warmth for others, to have concern in my heart for others. Caring for life from the beginning to the end. What a simple thing, what a beautiful thing…So, go forth and don’t be discouraged. Care for life. It’s worth it.”
Watching protesters shouting judgment and hate based on what they call religion is horrible. Is that loving God? Is that loving your neighbor as yourself?”
Yes, that is horrible for people to be shouting judgment and hate at people in front of an Abortion clinic and clearly not endorsed by the majority of those who oppose abortion.
She said, “It breaks my heart to know women are sitting in pews across the country feeling shamed, believing that they’re cursed for making this decision. That’s a question I get a lot on the phone, ‘Am I going to hell?’ When God instead is there to support women through it all.”
No, God is there with his arms outstretched toward them, offering forgiveness, love and mercy to their repentance. not justification, nor encouragement for our sins, that’s the work of the enemy.
It breaks my heart that there are women reaching out, repenting of an abortion, not being fed with God’s love and mercy but instead being fed with more lies from the enemy by justification and encouragement for their sins with this woman/group.
It’s seriously messed up that such a group could call themselves Christian and yet support the murder of the most innocent in a mother’s womb, especially under the guise of love or mercy, of which it is emphatically clear that abortion is neither.
“For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
