Default Iowa Democrats Pray for Abortion Rights

Ahhh...The Democrats found religion...asking God to excuse himself while they worship the government...

Iowa Democrats Pray for Abortion Rights


Quote:
Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson joined 50 pro-abortion activists in an extended prayer for abortion rights during a rally at the State Capitol on Wednesday. The noon event was meant to fire-up liberals prior to an afternoon hearing across the street conducted by the Iowa Board of Medicine regarding tele-med abortions.

They made the unusual decision, for Democrats, to begin the event with a prayer. This was likely in response to a prayer vigil being conducted by pro-life activists at the same time nearby.

Des Moines activist Midge Slater took the podium and spent five and a half minutes thanking God for abortion rights, abortion doctors and taxpayer funding for abortions. She also referred to the decision to have an abortion as “a blessing”.

During the entire prayer, State Senator Jack Hatch and Rep. Tyler Olson, both of whom are running for governor, kept their heads bowed and eyes closed, joining in the group prayer.

Quote:
We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”

“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”

“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”

“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”

Praying. Perhaps. But to whom?

Doesn't everyone pray for the right to kill the unborn?

Next they'll be thanking God for allowing them to cheat with the wife next door. These people have no shame... or soul.

What amuses me is that Pat Robertson says some deeply disturbing things which I have pointed out in the past.
Anderson Cooper points out some examples...
WATCH: Anderson Cooper mocks Pat Robertson's gay-AIDS-rings conspiracy theory - The Week

Robertson has a multi-million dollar empire, demonstrating he has a LOT of followers...

But when I've pointed this out in the past, it gets disregarded.
Based on the frequency of Robertson's idiocy and the number of followers, I would put that as exponentially more problematic than this...

There is a reason people hesitate to badmouth Pat. He is like Samson without a haircut. They say he can leg press a ton. Anybody would hate to get beat down by an 80 year old.

Really? No one responds on that? 'Cause I'm pretty sure at least I myself have publicly disapproved of Pat Robertson's statements in these forums before.
Nice try, though.

You'll find some of the same players, minus the fundie who tended to dominate all the threads over there.

No.

Try responding to what I say instead of trying to turn it into something else.
