Government's Biblical Role in Abortion
By Michael Spielman

    The slogan which sits at the top of every page on the Religious Coalition for Reproduction Choice (RCRC) website says, “Pro-faith, Pro-family, Pro-choice.” This schizophrenic declaration is something akin to ‘Pro-Jew,’ ‘Pro-Synagogue,’ ‘Pro-Holocaust.’ It is an utter absurdity.
    If you click on the “Issues” tab at the top of the page and click on “Common” (Common Questions) you’ll find, “What Does My Religion Say About Reproductive Choice?,” which states: “We recognize that in a pluralistic society such as ours, government must not impose laws about childbearing based on any one belief about when personhood begins.” In the section, “Why is Reproductive Choice a Moral Issue?” you’ll find, “As pro-choice people of faith, we believe that the ability to make moral decisions is the very basis of an individual’s dignity and autonomy and an expression of our God-given ability to exercise free will.”
    It is very common for people who reject the Bible as being the authoritative Word of God to nevertheless use the Bible in an attempt to convince Christians that it is unbiblical to try and restrict abortion. They say things like, “Isn’t it a sin to judge other people?” “Didn’t God give us a free will?”
    Dr. Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, in her essay, “Respecting the Moral Agency of Women,” also available on the RCR website makes just such an argument. She says: “According to Scripture, God knew that Adam and Eve would misuse their power to choose. Yet God chose to give them that power, creating them ‘sufficient to have stood, though free to fall.’ We human beings should follow our Creator’s example by giving one another moral elbow room.”

The Mendacity of the Missouri Coalition for Life Saving Cures
Commentary by Wesley J. Smith

     “What’s that smell in this room? Didn’t you notice it, Brick? Didn’t you notice the powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity in this room?” From Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
    The line quoted above, uttered by Big Daddy to Brick, is one of my favorite lines in any play. It came to mind this morning when I read the latest mendacity emanating from the propaganda smokestack of Missouri Coalition for Lifesaving Cures (MCLC).
    It isn’t that its leaders support human cloning research that gets my goat. I understand why people would believe that this research is the best way to go. But the human cloning issue is one of those rare controversies that are truly epochal. And in deciding how to proceed, basic respect for democratic processes requires accuracy in definitions and a clear respect for distinctions so that people will know what it is that is being discussed--and what is not being discussed--so that they can make ethical and political judgments based on facts--not lies.
    But MCLC won’t have that! It might lose. So, its advocates engage in the worst kinds of public deception--which shows utter disdain for those on behalf of whom they claim to be serving.
    The latest example is this op/ed piece by Donn Rubin, the chairman of MCLC.
