Planned Parenthood: The Bible Says Nothing About Abortion, So What’s the Problem?

It seems Planned Parenthood will go to great and absurd lengths to defend its business practices. For example, in a recent “pastoral letter” sent out to prospective “clients,” the abortion giant actually sought to justify abortion…on religious grounds.

After all, according to the organization’s “clergy advocacy board,” it’s not even mentioned in the Bible, so how could terminating an unwanted pregnancy possibly violate God’s will? The Christian Post explains:

Planned Parenthood recently released a “pastoral letter to patients” in which the organization’s clergy advocacy board tells prospective clients that the Bible is silent on the issue of abortion, and further asserts that it’s not even mentioned in the Scriptures.Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, says that Planned Parenthood’s claim is a “ridiculous attempt to justify abortion.”

According to Jeffress, Planned Parenthood’s assertion is “tantamount to saying that there is nothing wrong with an intoxicated driver killing another motorist because the Bible does not mention ‘drunk driving.‘”

The second paragraph of Planned Parenthood’s letter, which as of Tuesday was removed from the Internet, states: “Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures — Jewish or Christian — and there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.”
