Sorry Ladies, Abortion is NOT a Christian Value
Prominent entertainers publicly supporting the slaughter of unborn babies under the pretext of “mercy” and “Christian values” is an outrageous new form of gaslighting that we are regrettably being subjected to by the mainstream media. One is reminded of the timeless verse from the Prophet Isaiah:
This blatant manipulation of the truth is the trick of Satan himself who is the father of all lies and unfortunately many young people are falling prey to this distorted thinking.
Actress, Anne Hathaway, was recorded as saying on the View several months ago that, “My own personal experience with abortion – and I don’t think we talk about this enough – abortion can be another word for mercy.” Obviously, Hathaway really needs to pick up a dictionary as even the secular and often woke Merriam Webster defines mercy in the following ways:
- compassion shown especially to an offender or to one subject to one’s power
- lenient or compassionate treatment
- a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion
The corporal works of mercy of feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, visiting the imprisoned, sheltering the homeless, visiting the sick and burying the dead, are all about the physical care and concern for the human person, even in their death. What better way is there to express these beautiful corporal works of mercy other than by a mother, who through self-sacrifice, nurtures and protects the child within her womb? Hate to break it to you Anne Hathaway, but mercy is definitely not abortion, but rather the compassionate defense and care of a new and vulnerable life.
Another misled entertainer, iconic recording artist Taylor Swift, claims to be a Christian in good standing and has been quoted as saying that people with real Christian values support abortion. These two statements are totally irreconcilable and incompatible. Claiming you are Christian and supporting abortion is like saying you’re a vegetarian who eats steaks and hamburgers for dinner. It’s like saying you’re a faithful, valuable employee who embezzles money from your company. It’s like saying you’re a follower of Jesus Christ who kills people.
Real Christian values have always included adhering to the tenets of the Ten Commandments. The last time I checked, the 5th Commandment clearly states, “You shall not kill.” There is no disclaimer or fine print stating that you are allowed to kill a child in the womb if it happens to come at an inconvenient time, or you’d rather pursue a career than become a mother. Swift, in aligning the sin of abortion with Christianity is creating a blasphemous perversion and distortion of true Christian values which always entail giving of yourself fully to others, just as Jesus died on the cross for all of us.
These young women have had unimaginable worldly success and fame. One wonders what happened to their basic humanity. How did they become so callus and uncaring that they are able to turn a blind eye to the fate of a defenseless, helpless baby in the womb? Did the Hollywood system corrupt them at such a young age into thinking that killing another unique and wholly separate person is a woman’s right, and by so doing keep them in an arrested state of development unable to reason as a mature adult and face the truth of this cruel act?
They also have a large public presence in film, music and on social media, especially with young girls and women. Anne Hathaway and Taylor Swift could be a voice of reason for the protection of the unborn, instead they are using their influence to corrupt the next generation into accepting the abomination of abortion. I do think they need to be called out by prominent Christians (in charity of course) for their manipulation of the faith. But they also need a huge conversion of heart, so perhaps pray for them so that they may see the error of their ways. With God anything is possible and He often uses the least likely among us.
