Even Though I’m Not From Your Sack I Know You’re Still Got My Back Father’s Day Shirt, hoodie, tank top
Unfortunately, Christ was not a moderate nor a “bleeding heart liberal.” Christ came with a radical message. Accept the FREE gift of grace or burn in hell. There is nothing peaceful about that.

Fred, #38, i don’t think you understand the nuance in the sentence you quoted.
no one is pro-abortion in the sense that you assign to it, i.E., no one wants or promotes abortions. The precise way to describe it is that no Democrat is pro-abortion, but PRO-CHOICE.
to be even more precise, Dems believe in and work for a society in which abortions are safe, legal and rare… Rare because there are more options in place, both before and after the situation of considering an abortion, that don’t require the government intruding upon or controlling the bodies of its citizens.
those who are pro-choice hope that a woman would NOT choose to have an abortion — thus the nuance in the sentence you quote — but grasp the reality that our society is not very supportive of women or children who have already been born.
pro-choice means a woman has the right of sovereignty over her own body and the direction of her life. Thus the need for choice to remain, in safety.
do you see the difference?
obviously, Cornell did not take the time to explain this in her article, as it is self-evident. The term pro-CHOICE has been around for decades, but perhaps that nuance is still not clear, even after all of these years.
hope that clears it up for you.

Evangelical Christians too often can’t distinguish between being “Christ-like” and their apparent mission to be like Christ; i.E. To hang themselves up on a cross for everyone to see.
Here’s a hint: Jesus didn’t complain constantly.
