Chelsea Clinton: Banning Abortions "Un-Christian"

Chelsea is truly her mother, Hillary's daughter.

She told a feminist panel that as a "deeply religious person," the idea of going back to the pre-Roe v Wade days where abortions were banned is "unChristian."

She explains that those deeply held "Christian beliefs" is what motivates her to continue her battle to protect women's rights for legal abortions.

Franklin Graham, Dinesh D'Souza, and other Christian leaders are reacting.

This is in followup to a subject I wrote about earlier---and now as it relates to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Be informed.

The message of the Left always uses Scripture to "affirm" rather than "transform."

In an interview with SiriusXM's "Signal Boost" last week, Chelsea said every day she makes a "moral choice" to be optimistic for her children when it comes to what she calls "a battle for women's rights."

The former First Daughter said,
"And when I think about all of the statistics that are painful of what women are confronting in our country today, and what even more women confronted pre-Roe and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can't go back to that," referring to the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in America.

She said legalized abortion has contributed trillions of dollars to the American economy.

But, Chelsea explained, this is not a political issue, but a spiritual one to her.

Like her mother, Chelsea states her far Left secular progressive worldview and ideology, then uses the Bible and Christian compassion to support the very thing the Bible clearly condemns.

In this case, "Thou shalt not kill."

This is done to affirm support for abortion, redefining marriage, homosexual behavior, transgenderism, gender fluidity and a number of destructive human behaviors and beliefs.

She says, "Like, that's unconscionable to me, and also, I'm sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it's also unChristian to me," referring to her Methodist faith.

In the world of the progressive Left, any disagreement, or even lack of affirmation, is "hate."

I'm pretty sure D'Souza and Franklin Graham don't "hate" her---but they certainly don't agree or affirm what she is claiming.

Neither do I.

Both Graham and D'Souza called her out on her claim that abortion has contributed 3.5 trillion dollars to the economy. A claim she had made before.

Chelsea tweeted, "Hi Dinesh--not what I said. Foremost, protecting reproductive health rights protects women's human rights & health. From 1973-1985, American women's deaths from abortion declined 5-fold. Reproductive rights are also about women's economic rights and agency."

Actually, it was what she said. Her tweet was a revised version of what she had previously said.

Earlier this month Clinton had spoken at a pro-choice event in New York City and made the same statement.

Franklin Graham had said at the time, "Chelsea Clinton claims that legalizing abortion added trillions of dollars to the economy. What a lie."

And he said,
"Hitler probably also claimed that killing the Jews would be good for the economy. Legalizing abortion hasn't added anything to our country, it has only taken away. It has cost this nation more than 60 million lives---lives precious to God."

I would add, it has also cost this nation the benefit of those lives, and what they would have contributed to our society.

But, as Chelsea said, this is a spiritual matter.

It's about the Supreme Court. And about a personal worldview.

The religious Left and the secular Left want secular progressive (or at least religious Left) Supreme Court justices.

A secular, progressive Justice believes that the Constitution is a "living" document and must be adapted to current cultural norms. As they redefine "marriage," human sexuality, the sanctity of life, the "right to life" under God, separation of church and state, and whatever else --- they can bend the Constitution to support their latest, but ever-evolving "norm" in society.

They bend and twist the Constitution in the name of supposedly "creating a more perfect union."

An "originalist" or conservative Justice interprets the Constitution on the basis of what it says, not what it "could mean" in the eye of a secular beholder.

The late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said this regarding the Constitution:
"Originalism says that when you consult the text, you give it the meaning it had when it was adopted, not some later modern meaning."

The pro-choice event earlier this month in New York was actually a "Rise for Roe" rally designed to raise money to destroy the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because he "will tilt the court away from Roe v Wade."

In a sense, Hillary's daughter Chelsea is right. This is a spiritual matter. It's about the soul of America.

All this---claims like those of Chelsea, echoed by other so-called progressives, including her mother, across the country--- are voices---knowingly or unknowingly---of deception.

It is a spiritual matter.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" (Ephesians 6:12).
