Pro-life Christians are speaking out against clergy from liberal denominations who’ve been blessing abortion clinics, claiming that abortionists are carrying out God’s glory.
“God of grace and God of glory, in whom we move and live,” the Rev. Carlton Veazey’s, a minister in the National Baptist Convention, U.S.A., and president of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice [a group that advocates for abortion,] said when blessing an abortion clinic in Bethesda, Maryland, on Monday.
“Keep them safe and keep them strong. And may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory,” he added, when referring to the doctors and staff working at the facility.
The Washington Post reported that four Christian pastors and one rabbi attended the ceremony, and were supposed to be joined by a Hindu priest who didn’t make it to the occasion.
Others, such as the Rev. Cari Jackson, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, said the abortion-backing clergy sprinkled water in every room in the clinic, looking to “honor” the women coming in to make decisions about their pregnancies.
The clergy’s actions have been strongly condemned by Christian leaders, however, such as Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, who said in a tweet: “This is revolting.”
Others, such as Father Frank Pavone, the National Director of Priests for Life and president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, told LifeSiteNews: “The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, as we have pointed out in the book Holy Abortion? (commissioned by the NPRC), is far out of the mainstream of America and the Church,” said Pavone. “Most who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice’ would be abhorred by what Carhart and other late term abortionists do.”
The clinic in question is run by Nevada-based abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who has seen his practice protested against on a number of occasions.
In 2013, Jennifer Morbelli, a substitute teacher from Westchester County, New York, who was eight months pregnant, died following the late-term abortion performed by Carhart.
Former employees at his Nebraska clinic revealed earlier that they were instructed to insert IV needles and give intravenous medication to patients even though they were not a registered nurse or a certified licensed practical nurse. They have also described unsanitary conditions at Carhart’s clinic.
