Christian Group's Survey Finds That Christians Have the Most Abortions in U.S.

Christian Group's Survey Finds That Christians Have the Most Abortions in U.S. | Alternet

Quote:
With the terrible events that unfolded over the holiday weekend still reverberating across the country, it is timely that the Christian Research group LifeWay would release the findings of a survey they conducted concerning abortion and the demographics of abortion when it comes to religion. The study was co-sponsored by Care Net, a pregnancy center support organization. Some of their findings:

70 percent of the women they surveyed identified as Christians.

23 percent of Christian women who have had an abortion consider themselves evangelical Christians.
Over one third of the women surveyed attend a church once a week or more.

Over half of the women who attend church regularly have kept their terminated pregnancy secret from their church community.

On the plus side, and probably surprising to many on the right of this issue who frequently share horror stories of women secretly having abortions while good Christian men are powerless, the majority of women based their decision to terminate a pregnancy (regardless of their religious affiliation) on the influence of the father of the unborn child. The influence of the father in this case was followed by the influence of a medical provider. So women who end up terminating a pregnancy aren’t, on the whole, a part of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

There is much more ambivalence when it comes to how safe it is to talk with a pastor about such issues and how applicable local congregation’s religious teachings are when dealing with the ramifications of terminated pregnancies.

51 percent of women agree that churches are prepared to provide support to women who choose to keep a child from an unplanned pregnancy.

This is not a good number.

Only 7 percent said they discussed their decision with anyone at church.
Twice as many women would not recommend to someone close to them that they discuss their decision regarding an unplanned pregnancy with someone at a local church.

Doesn’t sound like the church is considered welcoming to many women dealing with very tough decisions. Maybe there is another way to look at this? When Christian Post asked an anti-abortion group, here’s how they spun this news.
Not surprised, right? In most instances, hypocrites accuse others of what they themselves are doing.
Thanks from Lyzza

Seems they are out to deny the poor only their abortions. They can have them, but not everyone.

A disproportionate percentage of abortion doctors are Jewish. The are the ones who promoted abortion and the promotion was directed towards Whites.

oh, brother.
the last racist post was somebody writing that the Jews were targeting blacks for abortion to keep their numbers from growing.
you bigots should get your stories straight before venturing out into the world.
you just look foolish.

This is especially amusing since everybody knows that Jews aren't involved in abortions - they own all the banks.
Thanks from Sabcat, LongWinded and Lyzza

Oh, it shatters your bashing women for getting an abortion knowing that your religion is involved in it to the highest number? Remember, this was a Christian group doing the survey.

Not a surprise. Hypocrisy is all over the place in this group

seems to me you are the one bashing a certain group of women for getting an abortion. i think they should remain legal in the first trimester ONLY so women don't go to back alley butchers. i don't care what religion those women are. you are the one starting a stupid thread about what religion they are. typical LW retardist BS.
