To commemorate Tuesday’s 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that affirmed a woman’s right to an abortion, some local Protestant clergy blessed a new Planned Parenthood clinic in a ceremony dubbed “On Sacred Ground” said the Albany Times Union.
“Today is more than about the building and about bricks and mortar,” Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Linda Scharf said. “It’s a blessing to demonstrate the support of the clergy.”
You know what’s funny, in a deadly serious way? These pro-choice types are always arguing that we should keep religion out of the abortion issue. Then why are these dopes pulling in clergy to “bless” their brand new abortion clinic?
“Clergy have long supported Planned Parenthood’s mission and believe women are moral decision-makers, and they trust their right to make a personal decision based on their moral beliefs and whether … we concur … we still need to respect that decision,” said the Planned Parenthood spokesperson.
The Rev. Larry Phillips of Schenectady’s Emmanuel-Friedens Church declared the ground “sacred and holy … where women’s voices and stories are welcomed, valued and affirmed; sacred ground where women are treated with dignity, supported in their role as moral decision-makers … sacred ground where the violent voices of hatred and oppression are quelled.”
Is this guy on drugs? Voices are quelled, buddy. That’s for sure. The voices of millions of babies are quelled.
The Rev. Abby Norton-Levering led the group in prayers for the center’s doctors and staff. “We pray that you will make this a place of safety and give a sense of sanctuary,” she said.
A place of safety? Come on! I think I’m going to be sick.
