MSNBC station on television in a hotel room

Via AAN:

A new guest on MSNBC is now claiming that pro-life laws now being passed across the country in the wake of the Supreme Court’s landmark ‘Dobbs’ decision is somehow exactly like slavery.

As The Daily Caller reports:

Reverend Jennifer Butler compared abortion to slavery while speaking Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Butler was speaking about a recent op-ed she wrote for Red Letter Christians in which she called for individuals to “denounce Christian nationalism” that has allegedly been “hijacked by white supremacists.” Butler told MSNBC that Christians have long used their religion to justify abuse.

“Our entire faith is about the care of vulnerable people and pushing back on those who would oppress others,” Butler said. “And unfortunately, what has happened in America is Christianity has long been used to justify the oppression of others, it was used to justify slavery, it was used to justify Jim Crow. Now it is being used to justify blocking women from the reproductive care, abortion care, that they need to raise healthy families and that is not my faith.”

“The majorities of religious people in this country support a woman’s access to abortion care because we believe in her moral agency. We believe that she has the spiritual capacity to make these complex and important decisions for her own family. And so, as Christians, particularly as a white Christian in this country, where Christianity has been used to justify terrible racial oppression, we need as Christians to speak more loudly about what our faith calls us to resist the pharaohs, the Egyptian kings, the Roman Caesars of our day.”

On Friday President Biden issued an executive order to try and impede the Supreme Court’s ruling in the ‘Dobbs’ case.

If you are too lazy to protect yourself from unwanted pregnancy and maybe disease you are too irresponsible to have sex. Wake up and grow up. You are in the adult world. It requires responsibility not stupidity. Nuff’said

Oh, look! Here’s a wacko minister. And sh’s for abortion! Let’s parade her and we can say “See… ALL Christian ministers support abortion!” Nevermind that most of the abortions in America are for convenience and not to save a life, or protect a woman from rape consequences. For all the shouting that ” Women will die” why the silence when we say “Babies DO die!” ?Less than .1 % of recorded pregnancy abortions in Florida ( Where they HAVE to give a reason for the procedure) were for incest or rape. About 200 out of 74,000, and the rest were listed as” elective”. So don’t think that abortion is saving lives or preventing wrongs, it’s not. What it HAS done is kill 70,000,000 future Americans. What’s even worse is that probably half of these deaths were black fetuses. If that isn’t genocide then I’m Peter Pan…

This ‘minister’ I’m sure never WAS a slave. And she wants us a Christians to go out and kill babies in the womb, does she? She will give women of the cloth a bad name, don’t you think? She does not worship the same God as I do.

I do not see how anti-abortion laws compare to slavery, but I suppose this idiot had just consumed a large bowl of stupid before making her statement.
