Abortion. Video.Iowa Democrats and pro-abortion supporters open a meeting with an almost five minute in length prayer to God thanking him for abortions. At the 1:49 mark on the video listen to how eerily in the background a baby starts to cry.
Abortion Prayer, “Creepy”
“In what one conservative author and columnist called “one of the creepiest prayers you’re ever going to hear,” Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates joined abortion activists in a prayer applauding doctors who perform abortion and asking for increased financial support during a rally held Wednesday.
“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care,” Des Moines activist Midge Slater can be heard praying in a video by the Iowa Republican,” reports the Christian Post.
“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,” according to the Free Republic.
Below is a portion of the transcribed prayer from the video:
“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.”
“We pray for women who have been made afraid by their paternalistic religion.”
H/T Hot Air
Although some people in the video can be seen bowing and with eyes closed, it could be argued that the “prayer” was more like a list of things that abortion activists might be grateful for, as well as a wish list. The words “God,” “Jesus,” or “amen,” seem to be absent from Slater’s message in the video of that segment of the meeting. Her “prayer” ends with an applause.
“If your political goal is to murder as many of the unborn as is humanly possible, no one should be surprised that you’re constantly taking the rhetoric to new depths,” writes conservative author and columnist Robert Laurie. “Today’s sick twisting of religion comes to us from a pro-abortion rally in Iowa. There, Des Moines activist Midge Slater delivered one of the creepiest prayers you’re ever going to hear,” writes the Christian Post
