ProChoice “Christian”??

I heard someone refer to herself as a “pro-choice” Christian.  That person said she wasn’t “pro-abortion” but believed in a woman’s right to choose.  You have probably guessed that person is a politician and is trolling for votes from both perspectives.  But she is not the only person who makes the claim of being a pro-choice Christian. Judging from the number of Christians who vote for a party whose platform calls for abortion anytime, anywhere, for any reason…even up to minutes before birth…there are an awful lot of them.  The phrase “pro-choice Christian” disturbs me greatly. It is a cry for neutrality on the issue of abortion.
Can a Christian maintain neutrality on such an issue? Not an obedient Christian.  Listen to what the Lord said about a nation that remained neutral while invading armies plundered Judah:  “On the day you stood aloof while strangers carried off his wealth and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like one of them.” (Obadiah 1:11 NIV). Let me paraphrase that.  “On the day you watched people destroy Judah you were the enemy of Judah”.  That’s what God thinks of neutrality.
On the day you vote for allowing people to perform or have an abortion, you are an abortionist.  You can’t be neutral about killing babies in the womb.  You will either fight it or endorse it. You are either pro-abortion or anti-abortion. There is no gray area for Christians.  And please don’t give me the old “what right do I have to tell a woman what to do with her body?” excuse.  Let me rephrase that question from a Christian perspective:  “what right do I have to protect the life of a child?”.
Christians, we have every right to do that.  Even more, we have the responsibility to do that!  Those babies need advocates for their very lives.  I believe it to be our duty as Christians to stand up for them; to do everything we can so that they can breathe the air of life. 

Pro-choice Christian? Nope. Not gonna let you get away with that.  You are a pro-abortion Christian.  Shame on you.
