In an interview on SiriusXM radio Thursday, former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton decried pro-lifers as “un-Christian,” priding herself on her own “moral choice” to support women’s right to kill their own children.
“Optimism is a moral choice. Every day, I make the moral choice to be optimistic that my efforts and my energies…hopefully will make a difference,” Clinton said of her own pro-abortion activism.
“When I think about all of the statistics that are painful, of what women are confronting today in our country, and what women were confronted [with] pre-Roe, and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices…we just can’t go back to that. That’s unconscionable to me, and also – and I’m sure this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction – but as a deeply religious person, it’s also un-Christian to me,” she added.
Yep. That's Chelsea Clinton claiming that it's "un-Christian" to oppose the poisoning and dismembering of living infants in their mothers' wombs.
Clinton then went on to complain about the backlash she’s gotten for promoting infanticide, including being called a “Nazi” (a word that apparently becomes off-limits when it’s aimed at a pro-genocidal liberal), while nodding along to a radio host’s insults toward “anti-choice people” and “gun lovers.”
While Clinton may be open about her own pro-abortion position, she’s more than a little sketchy on her claims. While it’s true that some women died from botched at-home abortions pre-Roe (just as some died from botched clinical abortions afterward), relatively few women were causalities of the left’s so-called “back-alley abortions” before the practice was legalized nationally in 1973.
As for whether defending a human being’s right to life and opposing genocide are “un-Christian,” I’ve yet to find a Bible verse to back up Clinton’s stance. However, there is a pretty distinct passage in Psalm 139 that reads, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.”
Clinton may want to dust off that Bible every so often before spouting off about God’s supposed love for infanticide.
