The hypocrisy of Christians on abortion never ceases to amaze or astound me. So? I figure I ought to expose all the hypocrisy of Christians on the topic of abortion.
FACT 1: GOD COMMANDED ABORTIONS TO BE DONE IN THE BIBLE AND EVEN CAUSED ABORTIONS HIMSELF.
God committing abortions himself
Genesis 6:9-22 New International Version (NIV)
9 This is the account of Noah and his family.
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.
11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. 16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. 17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. 19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.”
God commanding children to be slaughtered

17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
God commanding that the fetuses of Samarian women to be ripped out of their wombs
Hosea 13:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.”
God commanding fetuses be ripped out of the wombs of pregnant Tiphsah women
2 Kings 15:16 New International Version (NIV)

God kills fetuses in the womb and causes miscarriages due to a prayer by Hosea.
Hosea 9:11-16 New International Version (NIV)
11 Ephraim’s glory will fly away like a bird—no birth, no pregnancy, no conception.12 Even if they rear children, I will bereave them of every one. Woe to them when I turn away from them! 13 I have seen Ephraim, like Tyre, planted in a pleasant place. But Ephraim will bring out their children to the slayer.” 14 Give them, Lord—what will you give them? Give them wombs that miscarry and breasts that are dry. 15 “Because of all their wickedness in Gilgal, I hated them there. Because of their sinful deeds, I will drive them out of my house. I will no longer love them; all their leaders are rebellious. 16 Ephraim is blighted, their root is withered, they yield no fruit. Even if they bear children, I will slay their cherished offspring.”
FACT 2: Brutality against infants and children in the bible
Verses about cannibalism of children ordered by God in the bible:
2 Kings 6:28-29 New International Version (NIV)
28 Then he asked her, “What’s the matter?”
She answered, “This woman said to me, ‘Give up your son so we may eat him today, and tomorrow we’ll eat my son.’ 29 So we cooked my son and ate him. The next day I said to her, ‘Give up your son so we may eat him,’ but she had hidden him.”
“Then you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters whom the LORD your God has given you, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you
and toward her afterbirth which issues from between her legs and toward her children whom she bears; for she will eat them secretly for lack of anything else, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you in your towns.
“I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they will eat one another’s flesh in the siege and in the distress with which their enemies and those who seek their life will distress them.”‘
Death Penalty for Crimes committed by Children
God commands mouthy children be stoned to death
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 New International Version (NIV)
18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.

23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.
God murders the first born of Egypt
Exodus 12:29 New International Version (NIV)
At midnight the LORD struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well.
God killed, intentionally, every first-born child of every family in Egypt, simply because he was upset at the Pharaoh. And god caused the Pharaoh’s actions in the first place. Pharaoh was in fact? Going to free the Hebrews numerous times, but God kept hardening his heart to do so. In essence? God himself messed with the Pharaoh’s Free Will and because of it? God then had all the INNOCENT first born killed. Since when is it appropriate to murder children for their ruler’s forced action?
The rape and murder by butchery of a concubine by cutting her into 12 pieces and sending the pieces to the Tribes of Israel
Judges 19:24-29 New International Version (NIV)
“Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go. Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man’s house where her lord was, till it was light. And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way: and behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, and her hands were upon the threshold. And he said unto her, Up, and let us be going. But none answered. Then the man took her up upon an ass, and the man rose up, and gat him unto his place. And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel.” To put it very bluntly this poor, young lady was murdered by her mate for being raped.
The sacrifice and murder of children to be buried under the foundation of the city on the order of God.
1 Kings 16:34 New International Version (NIV)
34 In Ahab’s time, Hiel of Bethel rebuilt Jericho. He laid its foundations at the cost of his firstborn son Abiram, and he set up its gates at the cost of his youngest son Segub, in accordance with the word of the Lord spoken by Joshua son of Nun.
God commanding infants to be dashed to pieces, and ripped out of the womb of pregnant women.
Isaiah 13:15-18 New International Version (NIV)
15 Whoever is captured will be thrust through; all who are caught will fall by the sword. 16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; 17 See, I will stir up against them the Medes, who do not care for silver and have no delight in gold. 18 Their bows will strike down the young men; they will have no mercy on infants, nor will they look with compassion on children.
FACT 3: CHRISTIANS HAVE COMMITTED MANY ABORTIONS AGAINST OTHERS IN THEIR 1,700 YEAR HISTORY
When Christianity was declared a legal religion in the Roman State in 315, Christians started their persecutions of Pagans and many others. From 315 AD until the 6th century, tens of thousands of Pagan believers were brutally put to death by Christians. Whole Pagan towns that refused to bow down to the Christian Talibans invading their lands with forced conversions, were slaughtered. No doubt? Many pregnant Pagan women were slaughtered during this time, which caused the abortions of their fetuses. In 356 AD Christians made it a death penalty punishment to be a Pagan believer and the Christian Emperor Theodosius even had Pagan infants and children put to death because they had been playing with pagan statutes as if a child today was playing with a Barbie or GI Joe doll. In the 6th century Christians declared Pagans devoid of all rights.
Christians murdered and butchered millions of Jewish, Pagan, Native American and other pregnant women in their history. This is a fact and a truth. And Christians? Are fucking hypocrites when they speak out against abortion like they do. Matter of fact? Here is some more hypocrisy of the Christians on the subject of abortion.
Fact 4: It is Christians who get the most abortions in the United States
70% of Women Who Get Abortions Identify as Christians, Survey Finds
Over 40 percent of women who have had an abortion say they were frequent churchgoers at the time they ended their pregnancies and about a half of them say they kept their abortions hidden from church members, new LifeWay Research shows.
In a survey released Monday that was sponsored by the pregnancy center support organization Care Net, researchers from the Christian research group LifeWay found that about 70 percent of women who had an abortion self-identified as Christians, while 43 percent say they attended a Christian church at least once per month or more at the time they aborted their child.
The survey, which interviewed 1,038 respondents who’ve all had abortions, found that 20 percent of the respondents attended church at least once a week at the time of their first pregnancy termination. Six percent said they attended church more than once per week, while about 54 percent said they rarely or never attended a church.
As a majority Christian churches do not support aborting a child, only 7 percent of women said they discussed their abortion decision with anyone at church, while 52 percent said no one at their church knew about their abortion. Additionally, 76 percent of them say that the church had no influence on their decision to go through with the abortion.
“I’m not surprised but I don’t think that necessarily reflects anything bad about churches,” Jeanne Mancini, the president of the March for Life organization that organizes an annual pro-life rally in Washington D.C., told The Christian Post Wednesday.
“That would be fantastic if she went to a church member but the reality is that they know often that they are not doing what’s right, so they are not going to go [to someone] who is an expert in morality to find that out,” Mancini added. “They want somebody to tell them that it’s OK and they are not going to hear that from a church, at least not most churches.”
The survey also found that 64 percent of respondents feel that members of the church are more likely to gossip about their pregnancy or abortion consideration rather than actually help them understand their pregnancy options.
While weighing their abortion decisions, 36 percent said they expected or experienced judgemental reaction from a church, while 26 percent said they expected or experienced condemnation from the congregation.
Only 16 percent said they expected or experienced a “caring” reaction from the church, while 14 percent said they expected or experienced a helpful reaction.
Overall, only 38 percent of post-abortive respondents said they considered the church a safe place to discuss their pregnancy options. Fifty-four percent of respondents said they would not recommend a friend or family member to consult anyone from a church about their pregnancy options.
Churchgoers who regularly attend were more likely than individuals who rarely or never attend church to say that they experienced or anticipated positive responses from the church.
Thirty-one percent of people who attend church regularly said they experienced a “caring” reaction from the church, while 28 percent said they experienced or anticipated a helpful reaction from the church.
“While much work needs to be done to equip the church to help women and men with their pregnancy decisions, there are positive signs that many churches will be receptive to efforts to implement programming that addresses this need,” Care Net CEO Roland C. Warren said in a statement shared with The Christian Post.
With about four out of 10 post-abortive women saying they attended church regularly, LifeWay Vice President Scott McConnell said in a statement that there is a “huge opportunity” for churches to have an impact on abortion decisions.
But in order to get more pregnant women to embrace the church community for pregnancy advice, churches need to find a way to eliminate the notion that women facing unplanned pregnancies will be judged, condemned and become the center of gossip.
“One of the best ways that churches can do that is have someone who has found healing after regretting an abortion either lead a ministry or get some pulpit time to talk about their story and especially to talk about how we can be really sensitive to it,” Mancini said.
Mancini also suggested that congregants who have experienced and regretted an abortion can go to other churches to teach their members how to be compassionate toward the situation, yet uphold the biblical truth at the same time.
“They really can give great tools about how to be sensitive, yet honest as possible,” Mancini said. “Doesn’t ever help anyone to say that [abortion] doesn’t take the life of a human being, that’s just not honest. They need to help them grieve that life with mercy, love, hope and warmth. That is really what we are called to do.”
Although the research finds that many women feel their church will do nothing but gossip about their situation, Mary Claire Kendall, the author of Oasis: Conversion Stories of Hollywood Legends, told CP that faith communities will help women deal with the sense of pain and loss after a woman has gone through an abortion.
“Choosing life, when you’re pregnant and unmarried, or not married to the father, has never been an easy decision. All the stars I write about who had abortions — Mary Astor, Lana Turner, Patricia Neal — were deeply wounded by their decision, and the consequences they faced were magnified by secrecy,” Kendall wrote in an email to CP. ” For all of these women, the church ultimately became a place of healing. For God’s forgiveness, they came to see, was more powerful and important than toxic, destructive gossip.”
