The loudest voices in the abortion debate are often characterized along a starkly religious divide, the faithful versus not. But the reality is much more nuanced, both at this abortion clinic and in the nation that surrounds it. The clinic’s staff of 11 — most of them Black, deeply faithful Christian women — have no trouble at all reconciling their work with their religion.

And as the U.S. Supreme Court appears poised to dismantle the constitutional right to an abortion, they draw on their faith that they will somehow continue.

God is on our side, they tell each other. God will keep this clinic open.

Robin Marty, who moved from Minneapolis to Tuscaloosa a couple years ago to help run this clinic, was surprised to hear nurses pray for guidance as the future of abortion grows uncertain.

Paul through the Holy Spirit says in Romans: 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and darkened in their foolish hearts. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.

I probably will offend someone for saying this but so be it. If the truth offends you then that’s your problem. I don’t know what kind of Christianity these people profess or what sort of God they claim to worship. But whatever God and Christianity they claim to worship and profess is most definitely not the God and Christianity of the Bible. The God of the Bible says that murder is a sin and He also says to let the little children come unto Him and do not forbid them. He didn’t say anything about it being OK to murder innocent infants in their mothers wombs.

Great comment. I, like you, could care less is I offend someone with the truth. These women are not Christians and do not represent God. They are evil, sadistic Satanists whose judgment awaits them in hell.

I recently read that someone did not believe that murder was a good term. It, by definition, is a legal term. When Roe v Wade was handed down, abortion became legal. Therefore killing an unborn child was not murder. Abortion is about killing. And THAT, is against the Law of GOD. Thou shalt not kill. If you are able to persuade a pro-abortion supporter that abortion kills a human, then you have done your job.

This article described these women correctly by saying that they are “deeply religious.” However, there is a great difference between being ‘religious’ and being a ‘true Christian.’ Satanists and Atheists are ‘religions.’ But they are not true to God and his word. A true Christian would never work in an abortion clinic and perform abortions given the fact that the word of God says “Thou shalt not kill.” These women are evil, sadistic Satanists, who willingly kill innocent children. Hell awaits them for judgment.

So, now abortionists speak for God/? Really. I don’t think He would go to all the trouble to make a new soul just to have a human being destroy it. I cannot speak for God but, if I were Him, I’d be mad as Hell at anyone who killed a baby – unborn or otherwise.

Not ever will he support your sick and ignorant murders. You are not going to like the way he has to fix stupid and immoral conduct from so called human beings! Check your past practices! Like a thief in the night. Mercy only comes to those who give mercy! I wish you all would understand what your destiny is going to be!

Any one that believes the killing of sweet and precious unborn babies is a right given to them by God is sadly mistaken. The day will come they themselves will wish that they were never born. “God hates the hand that sheds innocent blood”. Proverbs 6: 16-17
Also God says, Vengeance is His and He WILL repay.
Romans 12:19
People should stop with their evil and stop trying to attribute it to Almighty God to justify the wrong they do. God is not having it.
Hell has enlarged herself, and opened her mouth with out measure: …….
Isaiah 5: 14
Stand for God now, if you want to stand with God later.

One day their time will come and on the Other Side, they will get to ask Him in person: Are You on our side? But rest assured: you cannot love the Lord and love evil.

Believing that God is on your side is irrelevant. Both sides in a war claim that. The real question is, “Am I/are we on God’s side?” Can a pro abortionist answer that in the affirmative? Not if they are honest with themselves.

The Bible that I read calls masturbation as in. Most people don’t even know that’s in there because they don’t read the Bible. And the reason why masturbation a sin and likewise homosexuality is because it’s the pouring out of life. The spelling of life to death. As a matter of fact the reason why the blood of is not to be spilled on the floor is because it is life and it cannot meet with the unclean. So if God was concerned that through masturbation life would be lost how in the world can anyone in their right mind other than the fact that they never read the Bible come up with the stupidity that abortion is approved of by God.

Furthermore Scripture says that the earth was intended to be inhabited. And in Proverbs it very clearly states or maybe it’s Galatians I can never remember that if those who are called by my name confess and turn from their sins, I will forgive you and heal your land. And God is righteous so he can’t back out on his promises. So what are we waiting for people.
